MOTOR Action owner Eric Rosen has put the club’s franchise up for sale saying the challenges of running it have become unsustainable.

The 2010 Premier Soccer League (PSL) champions were relegated last season and Rosen said the financial consequences of their exit from the top-flight had forced him to put the club up for sale.

“It is with a heavy heart that that we announce that the franchise of Motor Action Football Club is up for disposal. The financial circumstances that led to the demise from the Premier Soccer League are seemingly not abating,” Rosen said in a statement.

“Thus it would be unfair to players, technical staff, the league and fans to undertake an unsustainable venture in the ZIFA Northern Region Division One League despite our continued passion and desire for the Mighty Bulls and football as a whole.

“Prospective interested parties are welcome to approach us to negotiate for the franchise as well as any other assets that are aligned to the football club. Potential also exists for mutual arrangements regards to the use of the Bulls’ Kraal i.e. Motor Action Sports Club located in Suburban Eastlea.”

Rosen also recounted the highlights of the colourful Harare’s outfit’s 14 years in the premiership.

“Our 14 years in the Premier Soccer League was exciting and thrilling culminating in the 2010 PSL Championship, the 2011 Banc Sup8r and the 2005 Silver Jubilee Independence Cup amongst many achievements. We thus exit football filled with joy for our achievements yet sad for the exit itself,” he said.

“Motor Action FC history is lauded with several achievements ranking the club among the greats in the current millennium. There is no doubt that the new owners and management will be taking over a great club – a BULL in the kraal. It is our hope that this great tradition will be carried on in years to come.

“Congratulations to a job well done to the national team for their proud achievement in the just ended CHAN Tournament. We take pride in four former players and a technical staff member that were part of that great achievement. In ending, football is our passion thus we will forever support football in Zimbabwe.”
