Giants Dynamos and Highlanders received the first batch of soccer kits from their sponsor BancABC as part of their contractual agreement, NewsDay can reveal.
Speaking to NewsDay yesterday, BancABC managing director Hashmon Matemera confirmed the development.
“We took advantage of the big game that was played last Sunday and we said the two teams which happen to be our ‘babies’ have to clash in this big game looking different.
“The problem we were now having was the two clubs were insisting the season was almost coming to an end, so they would rather have the kits at the beginning of the next soccer season than now.
They argued that they will have to rework on the name tags that are going to be written on these kits as clubs are always losing players and acquiring new players at the end of each season. This might have a negative impact on the project,” Matemera said.
Both clubs confirmed receiving kits. Apart from Dynamos and Highlanders, BancABC also kit out police side Black Mambas.
The kits that were delivered include blazers, tracksuits, warm-up T-shirts, slopes and three quarter shorts. Each club is set to get soccer kits worth $22 000 which will bring the total to $44 000.
Bosso and DeMbare signed a three-year sponsorship deal with BancABC. The agreement will see the two clubs’ players getting salaries from their sponsor and transport to match venues.
