Namungo FC, based in Ruangwa District, is lately placed fourth in the domestic top flight behind the league favourites, Simba, Yanga and Azam FC.

SportPesa officials last week visited Ruangwa to hand over sports equipment to the district’s soccer clubs.

The gaming firm had received the equipment from England clubs, sponsored by the firm, through the firm’s campaign known as‘Kits For Afrika.’

SportPesa presented sports equipment to eight soccer clubs in Ruangwa.

The equipment, which include modern footballs, had been used by renowned England clubs like Hull City FC and Everton FC.

SportPesa Tanzania’s Director of Administration and Compliance, Tarimba Abbas, disclosed they hardly regret presenting the sponsorship to Namungo FC which is lately riding high in Mainland Premier League.

Abbas noted Namungo FC deserves a lot of praise for putting impressive showing in Mainland Premier League.

Namungo FC is making its debut appearance in the domestic top flight this year.

“I predict Namungo will perform well in the coming Mainland  Premier League seasons, given it has managed to hold the fourth position in the league in the club’s first season in the competition,’’ he noted.

‘’We therefore do not regret sponsoring Namungo because they are representing us well in the league.’’

“Namungo have motivated us to hand over sports equipment to the district’s other outfits which participates in various competitions.’’

‘’We are gearing towards seeing to it Ruangwa produces teams which will excel in top domestic tournaments, as it the case for Namungo FC.’
