MASSIVE FIFA WINDFALL FOR
19 February 2018
This was the benefit for Zimbabwe Premier League club Bantu Rovers established in 2008. We are proud to once again make a LIFE CHANGING contribution to the development of youth football in Zimbabwe.
Working closely with Mr Wilbert Sibanda, Secretary General of Bantu Rovers, and ZIFA TMS Manager, Mr Timothy Mazhindu, resulted in the FC Cape Town team effectively securing a MASSIVE FIFA solidarity payment for Bantu Rovers.
Bantu Rovers has a well-documented history of producing and developing players for not only the Zimbabwean national team, but also many who have transferred to South Africa and Europe.
Marvelous Nakamba was one such development product. He spent 4 years under the professional tutorship of Bantu Rovers and recently transferred from Dutch top-flight team Vitesse Arnhem to Belgian log-leaders Club Brugge for a MASSIVE transfer fee of $4,5 million. FC Cape Town enforced the FIFA statutes on behalf Bantu Rovers and with our good relationship with both FIFA and Club Brugge, we were able to secure this LIFE CHANGING cash injection to Bantu Rovers.
Bantu Rovers Secretary General, Mr Wilbert Sibanda stated: “This is massive for a club like Bantu Rovers. Many clubs lose out on training compensation after having invested in the development of their players due to lack of knowledge and the resources needed to chase these payments. Enlisting the services of professionals, experienced in dealing with these issues help teams like Bantu get their dues. Football is supposed to be a business which sustains itself. These funds from training development are ploughed back to nurture new talent. This will go a long way to ensuring we continually produce world class professional brands such as Nakamba, Kudakwashe Mahachi (Mamelodi Sundowns/Golden Arrows), Teenage Hadebe (Kaizer Chiefs), Nqobizitha Masuku (Buildcon in Zambia) and Tafadzwa Raphael Kutinyu (Singida United).”
“Without FC Cape Town, this would not be possible, No longer will ‘big’ clubs in Africa and Europe abuse the smaller clubs in Zimbabwe and we strongly recommend all Zimbabwe clubs big and small to use the expertise of FC Cape Town. This is a blessing from God and we thank the entire FC Cape Town family and a special thanks to Miss Kame, our Zimbabwean sister, for her assistance.”
CHANGING AFRICA and CHANGING LIVES is what we SPECIALISE in at FC Cape Town, we will ensure ALL African teams receive development compensation, we will leave NO stone unturned. Our team are professional experts in the understanding of the FIFA Statues and we will help you.
