Durban, Kwa-Zulu Natal, 4 May 2021:
Umbro South Africa is pleased to announce a three-year contract extension as the official technical sponsor of South African Premier League side, AmaZulu Football Club.
The partnership extension comes amid an impressive season for the club. Prior to the international window break, AmaZulu had logged four wins and a draw in their last five matches under the leadership of legendary footballer and coach, Benni McCarthy, who joined the club in December. An incredible series of wins in the matches following the international window earned AmaZulu a club record and second place on the DSTV Premiership log, just one point shy of the top spot.
“We are pleased to announce that our partnership with AmaZulu Football Club has been extended for a further three years”, says David Ricketts, CEO at Umbro South Africa.
“As a club, AmaZulu is one of South Africa’s oldest and most distinguished football brands. The synergy between our proud football heritages is the foundation of this partnership, and we are delighted to continue our association with the club and its very impressive ownership team.”
Sandile Zungu, President of AmaZulu Football Club commented: “A long-term partnership with a strong brand, Umbro, is a bold statement leading up to our centenary year in 2032."
"With the work that both AmaZulu Football Club and Umbro have done so far and are committed to do in future, I know that the Usuthu fans will have something to be excited about too.”
