PREMIER Soccer League side Bulawayo Chiefs will next Friday unveil their new kit amid revelations they have parted ways with the label Leyburn for Nike.
While Amakhosi Amahle publicity officer, Thulani “Javas” Sibanda was not keen to shed more light about the development, this publication has it on good authority that Bulawayo Chiefs have changed clothes.
“All that I can say is that we are still in good books with Leyburn and we will be having our new kit unveiling next week Friday. This is where new announcements about the club will be made, “said Sibanda.
They might have struggled last season and barely survived relegation, but Bulawayo Chiefs continue to set the trends on the local football scene.
In the 2019 season, Chiefs, who are the only local football team to have a verified Twitter account with over 32 000 followers on that platform, launched an online store.
Supporters and sympathisers of Bulawayo Chiefs can order the club’s apparel online.
Available for the local markets are replica shirts, golf T-shirts, branded golf T-shirts and T-shirts with catchy inscriptions such as “Anjalo Ama Sports”, “Ebhoreni Akula John Cena” that have been promoted by the club on Twitter.
Amakhosi Amahle have always been looking to harness available advertising opportunities for their store situated in the Bulawayo CBD and the bins have done wonders in directing people to the shop.
For the Diaspora market, those based outside the country can purchase the club’s replica shirts which are priced at US$30.
The Chiefs shop opened at the end of June last year with orders being made physically and online. Hundreds of orders have been processed since the shop started operating.
Deliveries are being made to all parts of the country by courier at an extra cost to the customer. Chiefs are the only Zimbabwean football club to have an online store.
