Zimbabwe Football Pundits and Fans Fume Over Warriors Kit Made By Umbro - Thats Catalonia Barcelona kit


The Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) recently signed a Kit-sponsership deal with the British kit-maker Umbro, but things haven't gone quite well so far in the patnership.

Umbro delivered 'the kits' 2 days before the Zimbabwe Senior Men's National Soccer Team, the Warriors, faced Congo Brazzaville in an Afcon 2019 qualifier played on 24 March, but as reported, ZIFA rejected the kit saying they didn't want the team 'to wear a kit that supporters didn't not identify with'. ZIFA opted for an unbranded kit instead.

Here are some of the reactions by some reputable football media personalities in Zimbabwe to the kit delivered by Umbro:

Twitter:

This kit is awful madoda. After waiting this long then u r forced to accept this nonsense…Beggars aren't choosers for sure. @DecoDecent2

When we talk of colours with meaning. Green for the land Africa, Black for the people it was looted from. Those colours Those colours are missing from this strip Blood and gold come last. No? @FortuneMushang5

Thats Catalonia Barcelona kit. We need our Zimbabwean kit please Umbro or else just bring back the Legea. @RonaldMbeke

See the Warriors Kit Here

This is not the Zimbabwe we want lol. Seriously the red is too much, Yellow should be more dominant. This won't fly and I wouldn't want to get one as a fan. @beebrian

Please kindly whisper to them that Zim is not Ghana, that kit is not Zimbabwean and it will be a bad omen going into Egypt. Umbro mustn't come to defile or erase our identity but enhance. @TatendaNyakany1

Seems like this kit is not popular with the masses. Not representative of out national team. Would be nice for fans to buy replicas but don't think any would be buying this design. It seems like a Fail @KSEGrp

That design is not a Zimbabwean ,Get us something that we would all like to be identified with. Umbro come on! @SsodindaN

Iyi haisi bhoo guys… Not at all. @online_zifa muri vanhu vekuziva imi. Who approved this nonsense. @muyauri

@umbro What madness are you trying to pull off here? Since when has Zim used these nonsensical stripes? This kit is soooooooooo unZim and we do not want it. J @jedza0668

What an ugly kit, these are not our colours, they should re design, we want our traditional plain gold and green. @AddyBashin

I don't think as Zimbabweans we identify with this jersey. Feels like you had made it for someone else who rejected it and decided to give it to poor Zimbabwe. I wouldn't buy that. Nyangwe zviri zvemahara no thanks. @Marshizie

A kit is an identity. Those are not Zimbabwe colours. Red is too predominant, or Zifa are mourning the August 1 shooting victims. @learn_kamuduhwa

The truth with these guys is they already made that kit but did not find suitors so now the want to impose it on Zimbabwe…wat is o difficult to redesign it Botswana got exactly wat they wanted why force us if we don't want it. @emmanueltmberi
