Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, 4 June 2021:

In partnership with Geronimo, Clouds Media Group and Shadaka Sports Management, Umbro South Africa is pleased to announce that it will be the official kit sponsor and match ball supplier of Tanzania's Ndondo Cup for 2021.

Under the agreement, Umbro will outfit the popular domestic tournament's thirty-two participating teams and referees. The Umbro Neo League - constructed with 32 hand-stitched panels and certified to FIFA-approved International Match Standards (IMS) - is set to be the official match ball of the tournament. 

"In our vision to become the number one local football tournament in Africa, the Ndondo Cup is always looking at creating new partnerships with strong brands, making Umbro the natural choice", says Mr Shaffih Dauda, Chairman of the Ndondo Cup organizing committee. 

"The Ndondo Cup is an excellent showcase of the football talent within Tanzania, and a meaningful contributor to the development of domestic African football."

"This partnership goes beyond Umbro's entry into the Tanzanian football and teamwear space, as we work towards broadened visibility for domestic African football. We are excited by this opportunity and look forward to seeing some of Tanzania's best in the double diamond over the coming weeks", says Byron Mulholland, Director at Umbro South Africa.
