For his part the chairperson of Mahalapye United, Jacob Pitso, expressed gratitude to the textile shop for sponsoring his team with sport merchandise. “It is not common for the business community in Mahalapye to support sport. As a matter of fact the gesture by Window Deco Fabric and Design shop surprised us, he said.

Pitso was hopeful that the development will encourage other business people in Mahalapye to support football as the practice will help to market them.
