Chipolopolo to change jersey againBy Joseph Mwenda on 8 Sep 2017
FAZ has ditched MAFRO just four months into the two parties long-term deal to supply Chipolopolo, the junior and women’s teams with kits.
FAZ announced the divorce of their short-lived marriage on Friday in Lusaka.
MAFRO and FAZ signed a two-year deal in May.
FAZ spokesperson Desmond Katongo said MAFRO had failed to meet their contractual obligations and that Football House would be seeking legal redress over the matter.
“Following the agreement between the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) and kit supplier MAFRO signed in 2017, FAZ wishes to announce a review of the partnership,” Katongo said.
“The contract between FAZ and MAFRO was based on the premise that either parties would meet their obligations to the other. Despite agreement for the provision of playing kit and replica jerseys, MAFRO has only partially fulfilled its obligation with regard to playing kit and similarly not been able to meet their delivery
schedule for replica kits.”
He said MAFRO was in breach of contract.
“MAFRO is therefore in breach of contract by their failure to meet these and several other conditions set out,” said Katongo.
“These matters have been brought to their attention and they have been given several opportunities to redress the situation to no avail. In view of the current status, FAZ has begun discussions with other potential partners.”
The MAFRO deal came after FAZ had an off-the-shelf deal with Italian sportswear maker Kappa in late 2016 and early 2017.
This is after FAZ’s previous long-term partnership with American sportswear giant Nike was terminated in 2014.
