However, he was optimistic that the new logo and the Incepta collaboration represent a turning point for the sport.

“I am delighted and honoured to reveal our refreshed brand identity which I believe will help us greatly going forward. Furthermore, the federation is not shy to admit the primary challenge faced over the years has been absence of corporate collaborations that can greatly grow the sporting code,” declared Molaodi.

For his part, Incepta co-owner, Thabo Majola revealed that based on the feasibility study conducted by his company, the BVF require between P200, 000 and P2 million to adequately run the league.

“We call upon local companies to partner with BVF to rejuvenate the lost sport,” urged Majola.

The advertising mogul’s partner, Managing Director of Dialogue Group, Tonderai Tsara, stressed there was much for a sponsor to consider before they part with their cash.

“They look at the following of the sport, and they measure its success and how they conduct their affairs generally. Sponsors need to know what they are getting into.
