  1. ah? this loss making company?? , they need a donation of US$ 300 million and yet they are also donating to non productive ventures? thats the job of ministry of sports no wonder you are paying TAX

    • @ Betters, Its a sponsorship package. That’s how companies bring about awareness about their products. you have media at these events and they will be featured on breaks for programmes that are televised or presented on radio and all, thereby increasing the customer base. That’s what they are supposed to do to turn fortunes around if at all they will.
      Regards
