“In accordance with international standards, we will introduce our new home kit which is a partnership between Fumo Brands based in SA and its brand name is Forge Forward (F). We hope that it represents our ambition as a team to continue to press on with our recent improvement in the field of play, administration, and supporter’sbehaviour.
“The team has recently marked 60 years of existence and in ushering in the next season, will persevere and be relentless in pursuing set goals and reaching new heights and standards, and hopes that the
Forge Forward brand will help propel all of the team's structures (senior team and development sides) in the mapped out direction, he said.” Mahlalela added that the replicas would be sold during the team’s games as response to the outcry from the team’s supporters.
