Under the agreement, which has a duration of three years, the famed manufacturer will produce training wear and match kits for the club.

The platinum miners replaced the Italian sportswear brand, Kappa, which had come to be associated with the club for the bigger part of their 10-year stay in the Premiership.

FC Platinum spokesperson Chido Chizondo said Umbro will also supply replica kits that are expected to be on the market by the time the domestic Premiership season starts.
