Umbro will also supply the technical and management staff with Botswana FA branded apparel. Supporter gear will be available for Botswana fans to purchase.
The Botswana Football Association President Maclean Letshwiti said:
“We are delighted to partner with Umbro as our technical partner. Botswana football is taking steps to improve the long term vision of football and hence Umbro showed great belief and trust in our ambitious future. It was only right we partner with a company that can back our plans allowing us to look and feel world-class. Our national teams are our pride and joy and our people will now be able to support our teams looking good. “
Donovan Bell from Umbro South Africa said: “We are excited to partner with the Botswana Football Association again and I’m sure it will be a great relationship. We have been able to secure distribution with a retail chain to ensure that fans can purchase their National Team replica jersey across the country. The bespoke jersey will be available in stores early in April 2019.”
