ZAMBIA Sports Fans Association patron Peter Makembo has urged FAZ to add more plans that will grow the association to a better place.
Makembo says by launching the 2019/2020 kit, FAZ was implementing what it promised during the Annual General Meeting.
He said FAZ had continued to show its quest to sell the brand of the association.
“During the last AGM we saw the points, FAZ promised to add a high. They (FAZ) laid out on how to grow, market the brand of FAZ and one of the results is when government offered US$10,000 but FAZ added US$15,000 and the launch is another result of what they talked about during the AGM and this is what we have been waiting for,” he said.
Makembo, who is also FAZ life member, appealed to fans and Zambians at large to promote the local brand by buying it.
“My only appeal is that fans out there, when those replicas are made available promote the brand by buying it. To the players it’s another motivation to them because we have gone back to our original identity, because everyone who is there will know that that’s Zambia,” said Makembo.
“We want to see FAZ being able to stand on its own because – a brand on its own. Everywhere in the world when you talk of football, it’s a brand and it generates [money] so the doors should be open with the corporate people so that they supplement government’s efforts.”
