This follows news that three times PSL champs have clinched a three-year deal with leading petroleum Engen yesterday, in Cape Town.
Although no figures were punted, the deal is rumoured to be in millions as expected.
The deal has the possibility of being extended after 2016.
“We are proud to officially announce a three-year partnership between Engen and Supersport United FC, two performance driven brands. I firmly believe that this is the start of a mutually successful partnership; a partnership built on our shared values, drive and professionalism,” said Tasneem Sulaiman-Bray, Engen’s general manager of corporate affairs.
Khulu Sibiya, chairman of Supersport International, expressed his excitement for the partnership between the three-time PSL champions and Engen.
“Supersport is excited to be associated with South Africa’s leading petroleum brand and looks forward to working with Engen in the future. Both organisations share the same ethos and ambition, and the new deal affirms Engen’s belief in Supersport United’s status as a leading South African football club.”
