Harare and Bulawayo titans Dynamos and Highlanders will finally receive their football kits next week as part of a contractual agreement with their sponsors, BancABC, NewsDay has learnt.
BancABC managing director Hashmon Matemera apologised to both clubs for taking too long to provide the kits since the time the agreement was signed.
“We have had problems whereby kit suppliers were supplying fake kits, so we really wanted to get the best quality for the two top teams. We had to go to Adidas South Africa to buy the kits which will icomprise football kits including home, away and extra kits for both clubs.
Each team’s kit reportedly cost $22 000.
Meanwhile Matemera took that opportunity to put the record straight on the BancABC Sup8r Cup final set for Bulawayo next weekend, but not under floodlights.
“The correct position is that the final of this cup will be played in Bulawayo at Barbourfields Stadium and the time is 3pm. We tried to talk to Bulawayo City Council; the electricity charges are too high, so it’s better we give that money to teams rather than paying for electricity.
“The idea of having the final played in Bulawayo is because we said we want to take football to all parts of the country. There are plans to take football to remote areas soon,” Matemera said.
The final pits Highlanders against league champions Motor Action.
