Umbro South Africa is pleased to announce a new long-term partnership as the exclusive technical partner of the Congo DR Football Association (FECOFA).
Known colloquially as the Leopards, the two-time Africa Cup of Nations champions join eight other African countries in wearing the double diamond.
Umbro will kit the Leopard's national teams with high-performance match kit, training and off-field apparel and equipment.
Donatien Tshimanga Mwamba, President of FECOFA comments: "After a rigorous and demanding process, a first that we wanted to oblige ourselves with when choosing the technical partner for our national football teams, we are now delighted to be able to collaborate with a world-famous brand."
"Since the quality and seriousness of UMBRO was demonstrated, we have above all chosen a partner ready to work with and alongside our Federation. We would like to thank Umbro not only for its proven patience and engagement throughout the recruitment process, but also and above all for the trust and interest it places in this partnership."
"Federation partnerships such as this are a key element of our ongoing commitment to the development and growth of African football. We are excited to welcome the Leopards to the Umbro partnership portfolio", says Umbro South Africa's Byron Mulholland.
"We have thoroughly appreciated our initial engagements with FECOFA through which we have concluded this agreement and are looking forward to the partnership yielding great success both on and off field."
