Zimbabwe’s furniture manufacturing giant, Teecherz Home and Office has pledged continued support for Zimbabwe rugby after sponsoring the national teams with 1120 litres of milk during the friendly matches against Zambia last week.
Teecherz also provided caps and T-shirts for the men and women teams as the senior men’s team capped off a successful week of friendly matches winning two matches against the visitors on Wednesday and Saturday respectively.
The Sables, who are preparing for next month’s Rugby Africa Cup, hammered the neighbours 31 – 8 in the first match before another thumping 56-3 victory at Harare Sports Club.
Like the Sables, the Zimbabwe Under-20 also registered successive wins over Zambia’s Under-23, while Zimbabwe women lost both matches.
“Teecherz Home and Office takes pride to partner with Zimbabwe Sables rugby team as they carve space in the annals of rugby history in the country,” read a statement by Teecherz
“We believe our partnership with the Zimbabwe Rugby Union will go a long way in heralding the beginning of a bright sporting career for our young men and women who are talented and passionate about the sport,” Teecherz added.
“Teecherz Home and Office remains committed to a healthy partnership with the Zimbabwe Rugby Union and will continue to assist them in the best possible way. We wish the Sables team the best on their journey towards qualifying for the 2023 world cup.”
Teecherz managing director Phanuel Vheriwa said the furniture giant has a strong commitment to corporate social initiatives.
“We are dedicated to creating a better future for Zimbabwe by transforming and developing the communities through our active Corporate Social Initiatives,” he said.
Zimbabwe rugby has stepped up preparations for the 2023 World Cup ticket.
