The announcements were made in Harare on Tuesday when Sakunda unveiled sponsorship for Highlanders and Dynamos worth US$5, 3 million over a three year period. Each club will receive US$890 000 annually paid out in the local currency equivalent to meet salaries, allowances and signing on fees for players together with operational/administration costs.
