NMB Bank’s Chief of Retail Banking Filbert Mponzi said the partnership between the bank and the club, launched in July last year, seeks to increase the club’s value proposition.

Mponzi explained that the card will also enable customers to have access to the bank’s instant cash service dubbed NMB Mshiko Fasta through which a loan of up to Sh500,000 can be withdrawn on their phones without visiting the bank branches,
For his part, Yanga president Hersi Said described the launch of the NMB- Yanga world debit as a revolution in the country’s football. He said the move follows several partnership meetings held between the two parties to explore and embrace available opportunities.
“It a new dawn in the history of football in the country as we launch this new black card in partnership with NMB Bank, Tanzania’s most profitable bank. I believe this initiative is a win-win situation and will add a lot of value not only to the club but to our loyal fans as well,” he said.

We have seen a surge in fans registration since NMB bank has a very big branch network across the country,” Said urged the club’s loyal fans to continue paying their annual Sh24,000 fee to enable the club to operate effectively.
