Be Forward Wanderers football club has reviewed that they will need to talk to their sponsors for a budget review as they will need more money to spend during the season than what they planned.
Wanderers get sponsorship from a Japanese second hand car selling dealer Be Forward and had already approved money which was proposed by the club to be used in the 2020 season which was expected to start on 21st of March but hit a snag when it was postponed due to the coronavirus.
According to general Secretary of the club Victor Maunde, the players will receive their monthly salaries as usual but the club needs extra cash flow from the sponsors in case the league kick off and does not end in December as planned.
“As a sponsored team we already have our wage bill budgeted which means our players will have to receive their salaries in full as normal. What we need to do is to engage ourselves in talks with our sponsors Be Forward and ask for special consideration from them in the case where the season has started late which will likely make it not to end in December as planned,” he said.
Maunde further said the nomads will need some more money to carter for fees of signing the new players they have brought at the club as well as to finalise debts they had with other players for last season.
“We also need to source money to give to new players we have brought to the club as signing on fees as well as money to clear off debts we had with our players for last season. Of course we have given the players some of the money we owed them but we want to make sure everyone is settled by the time we start the league,” said Maunde.
The Lali Lubani side has two new faces in the camp this season as they have acquired the services of defender Lughano Kayira and striker Juma Yatina from Karonga united and Masters Security respectively.
