The Uganda Cranes on Sunday used for the first time their new kits manufactured by Umbro. This was during the team’s first training in Douala, Cameroon ahead of the 2020 Chan finals.
The Cranes arrived in Douala on Friday evening from Yaounde where they had been taking part in a Pre-Chan Mini Tournament.
The team, which finished top of the four team competition with seven points, went through Aerobics sessions at the Hotel Vallleee Des Princess on Saturday.
And today [Sunday], the players and officials wore the Umbro training kits.
Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) December 2020 announced they had signed a four year partnership with Umbro to provide kits for all the National Teams.
