Himalayan Sherpa Club seal improved deal with Yeti Group
KATHMANDU, JUL 10 -
Himalayan Sherpa Club renewed their contract with Yeti Group for the upcoming football season, signing a record single sponsorship deal worth Rs 2 million in Kathmandu on Monday.
Club President Karma Tsering Sherpa exchanged papers with Yeti Group Deputy General Manager Norbu Sherpa. The contract extension means Yeti Himalayan Sherpa has landed the biggest sponsorship deal with a single company.
Samsung Jawalakhel Youth Club were on the top of the leaderboard last year when they signed a Rs 1.8 million deal with Him Electronics, the subsidy of Hulas Chandra Golcha. Three Star Club now stand third with Rs 1.76 million deal from Mega Bank.
But Three Star are ahead of the two clubs in terms of total sponsorship deals—they also enjoy an existing Rs 920,000 with Western Union Money Transfer.
“Yeti Airline’s new improved deal will help us improve the quality of our play in the coming days,” said Club President Karma, adding, that the deal is also pushing Nepal football into professionalism every passing day.

Ganesh Thapa said: “I feel glad that Anfa was the first to introduce sport sponsorships in the country.
The trend has been followed since by other sports. At the programme, Yeti Himalayan Sherpa also unveiled their new club shirt for the next season and honoured the youngest female Everester, Nima Chemji Sherpa. The 16-year-old reached the summit of the world’s highest peak on May 19 this year before sitting for her SLC examination.
