New kit as Wan­der­ers cel­e­brate 60th an­niver­sary

Observer on Saturday - - Sport -

– Hub gi­ants Manzini Wan­der­ers will to­mor­row in­tro­duce their new home kit in cel­e­bra­tion of the team’s 60th an­niver­sary.

This was re­vealed by the team’s Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer (CEO) Pat Mahlalela yes­ter­day.

Ac­cord­ing to Mahlalela, the new kit is a part­ner­ship be­tween the ma­roon and white out­fit with South African brand Fumo, and fur­ther stated that it rep­re­sented their am­bi­tion as a team to con­tinue to work on the im­prove­ments, es­pe­cially be­cause they are cel­e­brat­ing their 60th an­niver­sary.

“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.

He fur­ther gave a stern warn­ing on those that make pro­duce il­le­gal mer­chan­dise.

“The new repli­cas were avail­able for sale dur­ing the Swazi Bank Cup fi­nal last Sun­day and they will again be sold at the sta­dium on Sun­day E450. The round neck T-shirts will also be sold at E100.

“We hope this will curb the un­wanted trend of peo­ple re­sort­ing to mak­ing their own il­le­gal mer­chan­dise,” he said.

“As a mat­ter of fact, the team in­tends to take le­gal ac­tion against all that are cur­rently ben­e­fit­ing from the sale of il­le­gally branded Wan­der­ers ma­te­ri­als, in­clud­ing car disc stick­ers.

Those in­ter­ested in be­ing part of our mar­ket­ing chan­nels can ap­proach the of­fice of the CEO re­gard­ing le­gal and for­mal ar­range­ments.”

The ‘Wes­lians’ will play their last match against Premier League re­turnees Malanti Chiefs at the Somhlolo Na­tional Sta­dium to­mor­row. Kick-off is 3:30pm.
