Furthermore, we will be able to account for monies to an international standard. I hope this will give other partners the confidence to join us as we build on 2011’s achievements and grow rugby to become the second most popular sport in Zimbabwe.”

Tich Mudede, Deloitte’s Partner for Financial Advisory Services said that Deloitte was happy to be associated with the Sables. “Deloitte sees itself not merely as a corporate partner in its involvement with Sables, but as an investor in the future of the country and in the young, who are that future.We at Deloitte are passionate about driving sport forward in Zimbabwe and are therefore pleased to be associated with Sables.  We believe this gives us the opportunity to promote public awareness of our brand and image as well as strengthening brand preference in the market place.  The more high profile sport, and rugby in particular becomes, the more Zimbabwe’s image can move forward both in the international arena and in our domestic fixtures.”
