    We told you that the MAFRO guys are too young and inferior suppliers which should never dress a team of chipolololos caliber,but guys like slim insulted called us names that we are kalus bootlikers etc.

    I have always said am a CHIPOLOPPOLO and i would always praise what good things kalu did and despise the wrongs things.

    The same goes to Kamanga and the team at FAZ.

    Under Armour is trying to get a foothold in Africa, maybe we should look at them. They are giving Nike a run for it’s money

    Please go use Adidas, Umbro ( who designs for Zesco) …Go for traditional Football kit companies

    FAZ is killing me right now. It’s like they sat down this week and decided to just make some crazy decisions.

    There was no communique on the MAFRO deal before termination, as in us the Zambian fans didn’t know that this was happening. Also you have only been on contract for about one year. Is there enough legal evidence to back this claim, because this can easily backfire on FAZ.

    Munro and addidas better not companies like mafro those can only manage to supply clubs

  9. Sibs says:

    The MAFRO quality of the jerseys was like they were made in Kamwala by the Chinese chaps around. Numbers on the jerseys and the Zambia tag was coming out during games. Embarrassing it was for FAZ and us Zambians
    This is good NEWS though like @Positive Thinking says i don’t know if FAZ are in breach of contract by terminating before the 2 year deal.

  10. R2D2 says:

    The mafro deal was a lousy deal and wreaks of corruption. But once again FAZ are “already in the process of looking” means, no due process, ample room for backhanders. It’s not enough to claim you are discontinuing the deal without explaining how you arrived at such a horrendous agreement and what steps are being put in place to avoid a repeat!

    THE BEST NEWS EVER!!! THAT JERSEY SO CALLED COPPER WAS PATHETIC.LOOK AT THE STRINGS ON THE SHORTS LIKE THE OLD DAYS OF GODFREY UCAH CHITALU AND ALEX CHOLAS OF THIS WORLD. PLEASE FAZ ENGAGE REPUTABLE SUPPLIERS SUCH AS PUMA,UMBRO,NIKE AND ADDIDAS. WE NEED QUALITY.
    I FOR ONE NEVER EVEN BOTHERED TO GET A REPLICA BECAUSE THAT IS SURELY A CHEAP LABEL.
