Where are Highlanders replicas?

BULAWAYO - Bulawayo giants Highlanders are in the dark about when their Adidas replicas will be available on the market.

This is in sharp contrast with the situation at their Harare rivals Dynamos who will reportedly start selling their regalia Saturday.

After getting numerous enquiries about the replica shirts from Bosso fans, the Daily News yesterday contacted Highlanders chairman Peter Dube who admitted that they are yet to get their hands on the kit.

“I understand the replicas are now in the country but I am not sure when they will go on sale,” Dube said.

“We are yet to be contacted by our sponsors Banc ABC who facilitated the deal with Adidas and so at the moment we are not in a position to say when the kit will be available.”

When contacted to shed light on the issue, BancABC’s Desmond Ali referred this reporter to E Sport who he said were handling the disbursement of the replica kit.

An E Sport representative who answered the phone said he did not have the authority to comment on the issue and would get back to the paper when his boss came back from a meeting.

He still had not done so by the time we went to print.

Highlanders and Dynamos recently struck a sponsorship deal with internationally renowned sportswear brand Adidas through their principal sponsors BancABC.

This will see both teams’ replica jerseys going on the market at US$50 but there has been confusion in Bulawayo on where and when the kit will be available.

Highlanders will play Black Rhinos at Barbourfields on Sunday and the unclear situation on the whereabouts of their consignment of replicas may be a sign that their fans will have to wait a little longer to lay their hands on genuine Bosso regalia.

Bosso and Chipembere will clash in a Zimbabwe National Army charity encounter whose winner will pocket $6 000 while the losers will walk away with $4 000.

Charges for rest of the ground are pegged at $2 while the grandstands are at $5 and the VIP section will be $10. - Sakheleni Nxumalo
