Fall in copper price hits Zambian football clubs


The fall in the copper price as a result of the global financial crisis is hitting Zambian football clubs. Four clubs have lost their sponsorship from companies in Zambia's Copperbelt. In the case of Mufulira Wanderers, one of the country's most famous clubs, the withdrawal of sponsorship has led to a financial crisis. They have been given a two week break from matches by the country's football association to give them time to sort out their problems. Without a new sponsor it is going to be difficult for Wanderers to fulfil their fixtures.
