The Citizen (KZN) - - SPORT -

The South African Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion (Safa) an­nounced yes­ter­day they had signed a spon­sor­ship deal with Turk­ish cloth­ing brand D’S Da­mat to suit up both Bafana Bafana and Banyana Banyana for in­ter­na­tional trips.

The deal is the first of many Safa hopes to clinch for Banyana, who have qual­i­fied for the first time for the Fifa Women’s World Cup fi­nals.

“Banyana’s suc­cess has turned the tide,” said Safa pres­i­dent Danny Jor­daan. “We we are de­lighted the men and women will have an equal share [of the part­ner­ship with D’S Da­mat].”

Bafana will be wear­ing the suits when they travel to Tu­nisia in March for their 2019 Africa Cup of Na­tions qual­i­fier against Libya.

Banyana will wear the la­bel when they travel in June for the 2019 Fifa Women’s World Cup in France. – Jonty Mark
