Kweza revels in more Division 1 sponsorship


ZIFA Northern Region chairperson Martin Kweza has paid tribute to Axis Solutions Africa for their generous sponsorship of the second tier league’s premier knockout competition, the Axis Super 8 Cup which bursts into life next week.

The pan-African information communication technology company, which unveiled a US$20 000 sponsorship package for the Axis Super 8 Cup in October last year, reaffirmed its commitment to local football during the tournament’s draw on Wednesday.

Kweza, who is credited with transforming the Northern Region Soccer League into one of the most followed competitions in the country, praised Axis Solutions Africa for fulfilling its pledge to support the league.

“We are excited about the relationship we enjoy with Axis Solutions Africa. Today’s draw has once again cemented these relations and confirmed Axis Solutions Africa as a dependable, reliable and committed partner, driven by a strong passion for the development of our local football. Regardless of the current challenges bedevilling the soccer fraternity at national level, Axis Solutions Africa have stood by us; fulfilled their promise and have not flinched in their quest to see our football grow into a formidable league,” Kweza said.

Axis Solutions Africa chief executive Brian Mukudzavhu, whose company is making their first foray into local sports sponsorship, said they were proud to plough back into the community.

“We are more than proud to be sponsoring this tournament. It is my appeal to the teams: We want our brand to be protected. Today’s event is a giant leap towards the consummation of the sponsorship package which was agreed in October 2021 between the Zifa Northern Region Soccer League and us as Axis Solutions Africa. The draw reaffirms our resolve and commitment to not only the current sponsorship but the success of our football as well,” he said.
