Be Forward Wanderers General Secretary (GS), Mike Butao, who led the team, thanked the sponsors for the initiative.
“We are happy and proud to be part of this initiative. This is a very noble gesture as it is always important to interact with and give back to the people that make us who we are and as Be Forward Wanderers, we commend TNM for this,” he said.
Butao added when given the opportunity, the 2017 champions will set Balaka as the beneficiary district as Balaka Stadium was their home ground in 2017.
He urged soccer lovers and Wanderers players in particular to support TNM, saying a true Noma should always be on TNM.
