Zifa, Joma part ways

HARARE - The THE Zimbabwe Football Association (Zifa) and their technical partner Joma have parted ways with immediate effect.

“...Zifa has revoked its partnership with kit sponsor, Joma, citing differences with Joma officials as the tipping point,” Zifa said in a statement yesterday.

“In that regard, Joma ceases to be a partner of Zifa and the national teams will not don Joma branded kits anymore.

“A new kit sponsor will be announced in due course and in the meantime, the association will use alternatives available.”

It is not immediately clear which kit the Mighty Warriors will use when they take on Banyana Banyana in tomorrow’s opening match of the Africa Women’s Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

The team left Harare on Wednesday wearing Joma apparel and most likely carried with them, playing kit from the Spanish manufacturers.

The previous Cuthbert Dube-led Zifa signed the kit sponsorship deal with Joma at the start of 2015.

Former Warriors midfielder Quincy Antipas was the architect of the deal.  

Since then, all national teams have been kitted by the Spanish sports goods manufacturer. However, it seems current Zifa president Philip Chiyangwa was not happy with the Joma deal.
