Likatola receives a new kit from Econet
Lesotho's rugby club, Likatola, received another jersey from the telecommunications giant, Econet.
This happened at the press conference that was held on Monday July 31, 2017.
When handing over the Jersey, the head of Customer Services department, Karabelo Theko Lerotholi said that Econet began supporting rugby sport since the year 2012 before the national squad came into being. He said that the support began when Maseru Kings rugby club approached Econet and asked for jersey sponsorship. "We were really inspired by the spirit that the boys were showing hence why we decided to support them going forward even after the inception of Likatola" said Lerotholi
He said that Econet is very proud to become part of the history in the making because it is through the support of Econet that the small team evolved into a national team. He further said that supporting rugby is part of Econet's corporate social initiative and Econet takes pride in giving back to the communities.
Lerotholi said that the relationship between Econet and the Federation of Lesotho Rugby has been strengthened by the support of Econet Media through Kwese TV to sevens rugby tournament which will be held during the month of September 2017.
The president of the Federation of Lesotho Rugby, Fetang Selialia thanked Econet for their continuous support through the years. "I am very passionate about rugby as it is the only sport that complements the structure of my body and approaching Econet has been the best thing that we could ever do because the company has never looked back since their first sponsorship in 2012" said Selialia
Selialia said that even though the national team is only three years old, they have played seven international games of which they won four and lost three. He said that this highlights the commitment that the team has and promised the sponsors victory in the upcoming games.
