CITY of Lusaka Football Club chairman Justin Zulu has promised fans interesting football as the team starts its campaign in the Super Division.
Speaking when the team unveiled its 2017 Mafro football kit at East Park Mall in Lusaka on Friday, Zulu said City of Lusaka, fondly called City Yamoto among its fans, was a long time club that needed to play football equal to its fame.
“We are thankful for the kit that has come forth to our team, City of Lusaka. As you can see, it’s a nice and good quality kit and we thank the developer. This is something that we should look at and emulate for the future of our football team because it’s attainable to have such,” said Zulu.
“You are aware that City of Lusaka is one of the longest serving team in the history of football in Zambia and as such, we need to do our very best. City this year will be a team to reckon with. The kit itself speaks about the [expected] results.”
And City board of trustees member Christine Mulundika said: “This is a very happy moment for me especially. City of Lusaka, here we come and we are going to win the super league!”
Diego Casilli, chairman of Forli Investments, the kit sponsors, said: “To make this team play at the top level, it’s gonna cost us may be K3 million to K4 million; [football sponsorship] is not for the faint-hearted.”
City coach Elijah Chikwanda hinted that the technical bench would work to ensure that the team remained in the elite league.
Some notable committee and board of trustees members who attended the event include former transport and communications minister William Harrington, Alex Njovu and Christopher Chilongo.
