Be Forward Wanderers supporters committee General Secretary Samuel Mponda has asked Main Executive committee led by Symon Sikwese to pull out TNM Super League participation following team’s financial woes.
Mponda said paying players, issues of transport and logistics has been a challenge since the Presidential Task Force on Covid-19 ordered the reduction of gathering attendances to less than 100.
He further revealed that the team has been borrowing money from different stakeholders since the pre-season which puts the team at risk of falling into serious debts which will be difficult to retain.
“I have asked Main executive committee to withdraw because we can not be able to fulfill remaining games if we continue playing without spectators.
We already have a huge debt which will multiply if we cling on playing. Just imagine our trip to central or the North will need about K3million which we don’t have in our account. We better pull out and face sanctions from SULOM rather than continue and increase our debts,” he said
Wanderers parted ways with their sponsors Be Forward company last December after the Japanese car dealer revealed that their financial status had been affected due to the impact of Covid 19 pandemic.
The Nomads Executive committee has been busy searching for new sponsor which seems to have hit a stumbling block.
They currently relying on monthly supporters K100 contribute but the initiative has been moving too slowly according to Wanderers officials.
