First time ever partnership between premier league AmaZulu FC and Thule will ensure the team travels in style.
At the beginning of August, AmaZulu Club President Sandile Zungu welcomed a number of new club sponsors, among them sports accessories and luggage brand Thule. In addition to its top-quality, ergonomically designed products, this Swedish brand is also known for its commitment to living an active lifestyle and that whatever your passion, whatever you ́re bringing, with Thule, you’re free to live your life to the full.
“We’re all about spending time outdoors and enjoying our passions,” says Stuart Downey of SA Sport and Cargo, importers and distributors of Thule products. As a nation, South Africans are incredibly passionate about football and this presented a unique opportunity for Thule to get involved in the sport. As we are based in KZN, we naturally wanted to support our local top tier premiership team, Amazulu Football Club.”
“Thule products are smart, stylish, and known for their quality and we felt that the brand would complement AmaZulu’s image perfectly,” explains Downey. Our focus has been on developing smart, products that are environmentally sound, high quality, safe, and easy to use so you can bring the things you care most about.”
Each member of the AmaZulu team will receive products from the new Thule Chasm collection, a collection of sporty outdoor inspired bags of all shapes and sizes, that will protect the players active gear and stand up to the demands of frequent travel. Made from waterproof, weather-resistant tarpaulin fabric with durable YKK zippers, all these items are engineered for strength and designed with function and modern good looks in mind.
AmaZulu CEO, Sinenjabulo Zungu expressed delight in the exciting road ahead between the two brands. “We couldn’t be happier to partner with such an amazing brand that exudes quality, exclusivity and luxurious-fun. As AmaZulu we are thrilled about our partnership with Thule; the leadership and the players alike share these sentiments. The smiles on the players faces, at the handover, were telling. We look forward to a healthy and fruitful relationship with Thule and simply cannot wait to travel across the continent adorning our stylish luggage,” she said.
“The AmaZulu team has a hectic travel schedule and we wanted to make sure that wherever and whenever they travel, they’ll have peace of mind that their kit will get there safely,” says Downey. “Plus, as a team, they’ll look stylish and coordinated. We have never sponsored a PSL team before and are extremely excited about our new partnership. All they have to do is bring their game.” .
