Lioli unveil new jersey

MASERU – Econet Premier League giants Lioli finally unveiled their new jersey yesterday at the headquarters of club sponsors Alliance Insurance.
The kit, which is from English sportswear company Umbro, was expected to arrive in September when the 2018/19 season got underway but infighting inside Lioli’s executive committee threatened to scupper the deal.

However, that all appeared to be water under the bridge at yesterday’s unveiling as ‘Tse Nala’ president Lebohang Thotanyana gleefully announced a three-year kit deal with Umbro.
The deal is renewable at the end of the contract and Lioli have initially purchased kit worth over M400 000 and also received free balls, technical team shirts, bags, bottles, cones and caps from Umbro as part of the deal.

Lioli’s new jersey features the Teyateyaneng club’s traditional colours of maroon and gold and the kit package arrives with a home and away strip.
“We are here is to present the long awaited Lioli jersey to the entire nation. We signed a deal with Umbro as our official technical sponsor for three years, it is a renewable contract,” Thotanyana said.

“Umbro sold us two types of jerseys and then gave us equipment free of charge including balls, technical team shirts, bags, sports bottles, cones, windbreakers, caps and many more,” he added.
Lioli have also purchased 1 000 replica jerseys to sell as merchandise to supporters.
In addition, ‘Tse Nala’ have splashed out to secure “tournament jerseys” which cost M40 000 per set.

The tournament strip will be used for the Lesotho National Insurance Group (LNIG) Top 8 which is set to kick-off next month.
“We also got into an agreement of replica jerseys and bought 1000 replicas, we are going to sell to our fans and people who are interested,” Thotanyana said at the jovial kit unveiling.
“We bought two types of kits,” he continued.

“The home kit has Lioli’s traditional colours being black, gold and maroon while our away jersey is white but with our (traditional) colours as well. Our jersey arrived just when we are about to play the (LNIG) Top 8.”
