Botho Ryders Club secure sponsorship deals
The Botho University Rugby Ryders are now ready for battle at the Botswana Rugby Union League after obtaining sponsorships galore. The University’s Sports Division officially launched technical sponsorship from My Spar Botswana, Knight Frank, Simikit and FNB Botswana Foundation for the Rugby Ryders club on 22nd July 2016 at Gaborone Campus.
The sponsorship came after the BU Ryders had been struggling for some time to secure sponsorship for the team and, as a result, lost some players to other teams. The Coordinator of the Rugby club, Botho University and also the Secretary General of the BRU, Mr Ernest Mantsi, are hopeful that this shot in the arm will help lure new players to the team and retain the old ones.
My Spar Botswana sponsored the teams with a new kit prior to their encounter against BAC North in Francistown. Both the men and ladies teams were ecstatic to receive the kit in time for the BRU rugby league, where they have given an impressive performance.
