Dynamos Launches Magazine To Raise Funds

The club wants to use the magazine to help raise funds to add to the revenue they get from gate takings, which is failing to suatin the running costs of the club.

Only this year, the team’s players have been on strike on a number of occasions demanding payment of their outstanding salaries and bonuses.

The magazine whose first issue was introduced in the streets last week has a cover price of US$3 the same amount that fans pay to watch the popular Harare club in action.

The editor of the magazine, Phillmon Mhlanga, who is also the treasurer of the Sports Writers Association of Zimbabwe said the first edition of the magazine, which was printed in South Africa has been sold out.

Mhalnga denied that this was a fuindraising project saying it was mearnt to spread the Dynamos gospel to all the four corners of the country.

However, a source within Dynamos revealed that a meeting between Mhalnga and the Dynamos executive saw the club bosses emphasizing the fact the magazine had to be profitable or else there was no need to have it in circulation.

According to Mhalnga the magazine will start off as a monthly with plans to expand it depending on popularity. Apart from sales in the streets, the magazine will also be sold at all Dynamos’ home matches.

Dynamos have a loyal band of supporters and attract an average of 20 000 people whenever they play at home, giving the chance for the magazine to do well should it impress the club’s followers.
