In 2009, ZESCO United became the first Zambian club to qualify for the CAF African Champions League group stage. The Club is also one of only three Zambian teams who hold an all-time unbeaten home record against non-Zambian opposition. Umbro and Zesco United have enjoyed an extremely successful partnership over the last 7 years and it is exciting to see the most widely supported Zambian football team continue their fruitful relationship with an internationally renowned football brand.
Umbro will be the exclusive technical partner of the Club, supplying the playing squad with high performance competition, training, and off field apparel. The technical and management staff will be supplied with branded apparel, equipment, and luggage. Fans will also be able to purchase supporter gear.
Richard K Mulenga who is CEO for ZESCO United FC said: “The Club was pleased to renew the sponsorship deal with Umbro South Africa. ZESCO United FC value this partnership because Umbro has provided us with quality service and quality products. We look forward to continue working with Umbro for many more years.”
Donovan Bell from Umbro South Africa said: “We have been involved with ZESCO United Football Club for almost a decade and are excited to extend the partnership. ZESCO have been at the summit of Zambian football for many years and we hope that success continues and culminates in a CAF Champions League trophy.”
