Standard Bank has apologised for the controversy the kits thy supplied in the Standard Bank Knockout Cup quarter-final.
Airborne Rangers on Sunday rejected the kit they were meant to wear in their match against Mafco because it was insufficient and the colours were not theirs.
Azam Tigers also nearly rejected the kit during the match with Kamuzu Barracks but team manager Stevie Madeira said they worn the sponsors kit in the “spirit of sportsmanship.”
Head of marketing Chimwemwe Matonga said the setback came about because Airborne and Tigers were identified as the two remaining quarter-finalists after the midweek preliminary games.
“The supplier faced a race against time to buy the uniforms in South Africa and then send them over for the games. Otherwise, as for the other teams, they got them in good time,” clarified Matoga.
Matonga has since assured the affected teams that they will be given their sets of uniforms which they have ordered.
Tigers Technical director Robin Alufandika has commended the bank for promising to give them a new set of uniform which they will use in the semi finals against Mafco on Sunday.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
