FAM secures new Malawi kit deal, part ways with Umbro: SA firm ISAD set to take over

Malawi national football team, the Flames, will stop wearing Umbro kit after the Football Association of Malawi (FAM) secured a more profitable kit deal  with International Sports Apparel Design Institute (Isad).

FAM President Walter Nyamilandu: Farewell Umbro, ISAD set to take over as Malawi new kit suppliers

FAM president Walter Nyamilandu said they have signed a new contract with the frim which is based South SAfrica for  three-years.

He said after the expiry of the contract with Umbro, FAM has been on the market looking for new kit  deal.

Nyamilandu said “after a careful search” they has  identified the sportswear manufacturer Isad for three years.

He describe the new contract as  another “hugely significant” deal for FAM.

The FAM president said Isad will be  supplying all Malawi football national  teams with state-of-the-art apparel.

FAM engaged Umbro with a 5 500 replica jersey but it struggled to sell them at K15 000 each and the demand of getting a new deal at K20 000 each scared the association to renew the contract.

Umbro has a remarkable history. Over the years it has made the kits of Brazil in their World Cup-winning year of 1962, Celtic in 1967, Liverpool in 1977, Manchester United in 1999 and, most famous of all, England in 1966.

However, Isad is little known and have no traceable reputation.

It is owned by former South Africa and  Fulham player Kagisho Dikgacoi.
