Cosafa and Nike agree on sponsorship deal


The sportswear manufacture has made an agreement to back the Council of Southern Africa Football Association (Cosafu) at all its tournaments

The deal between Cosafa and Nike will span three years and will see them supply kits and match balls at any Cosafa tournament.

According to Cosafa website, they confessed that before the deal could be agreed, it took a few months to convince the apparel manufacture to jump in as one of their sponsors for tournaments and kits.

Association members of Cosafa are set to generate benefit from the sale of replica jerseys of their clubs produced by the American sportswear manufacture.

Walter Nyamilandu-Mandu, Chairman of COSAFA Commercial Standing Committee is delighted a deal conclusion has been made with Nike and he is hoping that the partnership will be fruitful for all the stakeholders.

It is critical in the current economic climate that COSAFA is strategic in its approach towards securing revenue streams in order to fund its operations whilst at the same time providing benefits to its Member Associations,” Walter Nyamilandu-Manda was quoted as saying by the Cosafa website.

We believe this partnership with Nike can be a game-changer for our region.”
