Africa Unity Kit in support of International Year of Biodiversity

Namibia's Brave Warriors will don the unique Africa Unity Kit when they take on World Cup 2010 hosts South Africa in a friendly at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban on March 3.

The Africa Unity Kit, created by PUMA, is sanctioned by FIFA and is the first ever continental football kit. It is the official third kit of the 12 PUMA-sponsored African teams including continental champions Egypt, World Cup qualifiers Ghana, Ivory Coast, Cameroon and Algeria, as well as Namibia, Senegal, Angola, Mozambique, Togo, Tunisia and Morocco.

The Africa Unity Kit features an Africa Unity badge depicting two hands locked in a solidarity handshake, and the brown colour on the shirt was created by mixing soil samples from Mozambique, Ghana, Ivory Coast and Cameroon.

A portion of the profits from sales of the replica fanwear for the Africa Unity Kits help to fund biodiversity programmes in Africa, in partnership with the United Nations Environment Programme's International Year of Biodiversity 2010.

Nine of the planet's 35 biodiversity hotspots, the richest and most threatened reservoirs of plant and animal life, are in Africa; by supporting the Africa Unity kit, PUMA teams are making a powerful statement for unity and raising awareness of the 2010 International Year of Biodiversity.

“The NFA is extremely happy to be invited by SAFA to take part in this historic match that will mark 100 days before the first World Cup takes place in South Africa. We also congratulate PUMA for having come up with the Africa Unity Kit and the Brave Warriors will wear the jersey with pride,” said an NFA spokesman.

Brett Bellinger, the Marketing Director of PUMA SA, said they were proud to have the Nambian national team wearing the Africa Unity Kit in support of UNEP and the International Year of Biodiversity. “The Brave Warriors join other PUMA African teams like Cameroon, Egypt and Ivory Coast who are wearing this Africa Unity Kit when playing friendly matches at venues across the globe at this time,” Bellinger said.
