While PUMA, Nike and Adidas are the top sportswear labels in Mzansi, some players such as Thabo Mnyamane and Hendrick Ekstein chose to be Lotto athletes and they were recently gifted new merchandise. Check it out!
Despite the prominence of the big brands mentioned above, an evergrowing sportswear label is quickly giving the big boys a run for their money, and it is Italian sports apparel-maker Lotto.
Footballers are watched by millions and thousands in the stadium which leads to many companies wanting to collaborate and work with them. Lotto identified this and quickly snapped up some household names including Mnyamane, Ekstein, Taariq Fielies, Thabang Monare and so much more.
