Sources at the club that the deal had been sealed following a meeting between Dynamos chairman Farai Munetsi and Faithwear representatives Brett Van Rooyen and Tendai Zhakata.
Although Van Rooyen could not be reached to shed light on this development, Munetsi confirmed they had held a meeting with Faithwear and an agreement has been reached. Munetsi could however, not be drawn into revealing the contents of the agreement.
According to insiders at Dynamos, under the arrangement, Faithwear will supply a playing kit as well as provide a financial package to cover some of Dynamos’ requirements.
Dynamos have another sponsor, Savana Tobacco but the two can co-exists since they have different business interests.
Savanna has been sponsoring Dynamos for years providing funds to pay the players’ salaries although some of the money never reached the intended recipients.
The sponsorship from Faithwear comes at a time when the popular Harare side is preparing to take part in the 2011 Caf Champions League. Ranked 12th in Africa, the team’s present kit does not fit their high profile as it resembles that of lower division teams.
Dynamos qualified to represent Zimbabwe in Pan African football after finishing second in the league title race. Although they were tied on 66 points with eventual winners Motor Action, Dynamos had an inferior goal difference.
