Leyburn and Manica Diamonds Strike Up A Deal


Leyburn Sports are delighted to announce Manica Diamonds as the latest team to join the brand - starting immediately for the 2020 season. Leyburn will supply Manica Diamonds with a uniquely designed kit which will be released before the forthcoming season.

The "Gem Boys" made their debut in the Zimbabwean Premier League last season - finishing in 5th place. The club has seen a meteoric rise, having only been established since 2017.

The deal sees Manica Diamonds as the second team in the league to partner with Leyburn Sports - joining fellow Premier League side Bulawayo Chiefs.  

Founder of Leyburn Sports, Ross Quayle, said of the agreement:

"We are delighted to be able to work with Manica for the new season ahead. We believe the club has a very exciting future and we are glad to be a part of that. We are really happy to have the opportunity to work with more teams from Zimbabwe - who have clearly embraced Leyburn as a brand and we can't wait for fans to see the kits we have produced for the club."

Vice Chairman of Manica Diamonds, Lovet Wadawareva said:

Manica Diamonds FC is truly delighted to officially announce a partnership agreement with Leyburn Sports, which is a UK based sports uniform manufacturer.

We think we are amongst the highly favoured clubs in the Zimbabwe PSL to have caught the attention of a sportswear manufacturer from the UK at a time when the entire world is groaning under the debilitating impact of the deadly Covid-19 pandemic. Our team will don home and away playing kits supplied by our new Business Partner who will also be officially selling quality replica jerseys for our team through online trading platforms that will be announced in due course as part of a broad based marketing and brand enhancement company.

We are truly indebted to Leyburn Sports Representatives for this defining gesture given the difficulties that corporates and all manner of humanity are going through as the whole world wrestles the invisible and obstinate disease in the form of the coronavirus pandemic. Long may this relationship go on to spur Manica Diamonds FC to dizzy heights in the 2020 soccer season that is yet to commence but which we are hopeful that it will happen before the year 2020 comes to an end.

As Manica Diamonds FC Executives we are enthused to be Associated with Leyburn and we are proud that this has come to fruition. We hope that our mutual interests will be fully realised as intended."

Both parties are looking forward to a successful partnership - both on the pitch and off it.
