The Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA) have signed a three-year kit deal with Singapore-based sports kit manufacturers Mafro Sports on the 3rd of June 2017, until at least 2020.
The SLFA will formally unveil the new kits on Friday.
The deal is worth $82,000. Mafro and the Sierra Leone Football body will share the proceeds from the sale of replica jerseys and other merchandise.
Sierra Leone joined Mafro Sports’ portfolio of Federation sponsorships including Zambian, Zimbabwe, Kenya, and others.
The Sierra Leone men’s senior team Leone Stars will be the first to don the new Mafro kit in the first leg Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on Saturday, June 10 in Freetown against Kenya.
“In addition to the annual kit sponsorship, MAFRO and SLFA have agreed on a profit-sharing basis of the national team jerseys nationwide plus international activities to be agreed.”
“We hope our presence will not only be strengthened in your market industry but also in the social and technical development of the future generation,” MAFRO Managing Director Mahmoud Gomba stated.
Sierra Leone Saturday’s Group F opponent Kenya last month agreed to a three-year sponsorship deal with the Football Kenya Federation worth $750,000 and a two-year contract with the Football Association of Zambia worth $400,000.
Sierra Leone and Kenya are both expected to don the new Mafro kit on Saturday.
