The Football Association of Zambia says it has no immediate intention of parting ways with broadcast sponsors SuperSport.
FAZ said they are willing to sit down and negotiate on improving the sponsorship deal with the South African-based broadcaster.
SuperSport recently terminated its broadcast deal with Zimbabwe’s Premier Soccer League, leaving Zambia as the only non-South African league on its books.
The broadcaster previously had the Kenya, Ghana and Nigeria leagues, but all pulled out of their arrangements.
According to vice FAZ vice president Rix Mweemba, SuperSport has been a very good partner to Zambian Football and has lauded the broadcaster for showing more league games in the just-ended season.
“You watch on SuperSport how many games they are showing and all the activities in this country. They have gone a long way to expose our players on television,” Mweemba said to Soka25East.
Mweemba added the association will look to sit down with other sponsors to improve on prize monies for the League and Awards.
Moreover he lauded the Zambian Super League, MTN for doing a wonderful job and the Association is engaging a lot of other sponsors.
“There are no other sponsors coming on board but we are engaging a lot of them. Once we have a buffer of these sponsors, things will change and the Prize money will improve,” he added.
