CBZ Holdings wasn’t robbed by anyone but itself as suggested by Darlington Majonga in his column, “CBZ Cup robbery” (Zimbabwe Independent, October 27
CBZ should not have sponsored the knockout cup in the first place, but the league. Yes, you heard me correctly.
In as much as the league has its many problems, there are several league matches that pull crowds, especially those involving Dynamos and Highlanders not to mention the mining teams.
The problem with sponsoring cups is that you run the risk of having big teams being knocked out in the early stages of the tournament and then you lose out on the mileage that you had anticipated.
It’s as simple as that and there is no way the league will be won by a “small team”. It’s “the big teams” that will win it.
They should have sponsored the league full stop.
