The Premier Soccer League (PSL) is on the verge of sealing sponsorship deals for two competitions, chairman Farai Jere has confirmed.
In an interview with The Chronicle, Jere has said that the details of the deals will be announced next week, but there will be a four-team invitational tournament and a top-eight competition.
“We are at a stage where we are trying to push the brand,” Jere told the newspaper. “Next week we will be talking about a top-four invitational tournament that will be based on what the sponsor asks.
“We have a top-eight sponsor to be announced next week. We’re very busy with these sponsorship deals, and this is a clear sign that the PSL brand has become a brand of choice. Lots of sponsors are jostling to be in partnership with the PSL, and we’re not resting.”
PSL recently struck a deal with Fidelity Life Assurance who will cater for the medical welfare of all PSL players and technical officials. The sponsorship package which is pegged close to $1 million per season will also see those who suffer career-ending injuries getting a once-off lump sum of $15 000.
The cover, however, applies to injuries sustained during official PSL duties.
