Shabana FC is on the verge of announcing the release date for their long-awaited authentic replica jerseys

Shabana FC fans can now rejoice as the highly sought-after replica jerseys have finally touched down in the country.

After a season filled with anticipation, Shabana FC is entering the last stages of making these jerseys available for its passionate supporters.

The scarcity of Shabana FC replica jerseys has been a source of frustration for fans since the beginning of the season.

However, the club's management has been diligently working behind the scenes to establish the necessary infrastructure for a sustainable financial income.

The announcement came on a bright Monday morning when Shabana FC took to social media to inform their loyal fans about the exciting news.

"New jerseys have landed, and we are working on some logistics before rolling them out to the market," the club declared.

As part of their expansion plans, Shabana is currently in the process of acquiring two retail shops, one in Kisii and another in Nairobi.

In addition, the club intends to collaborate with supermarkets and leading bus companies in various towns to ensure convenient access for fans all over.

The delay in releasing authentic jerseys has caused concerns among fans, especially with the proliferation of fake jerseys bearing the club's name.

Jared Nivaton, Shabana's chairman, recently emphasized the importance of patience and authenticity, warning fans about counterfeit merchandise in the market.

Shabana's journey to this exciting moment began when they secured promotion to the Premier League.

To celebrate this milestone, the club inked a lucrative one-year sponsorship deal worth Ksh20 million with the Chinese betting firm, Bangbet.

This partnership not only injected much-needed financial support but also promised new jerseys that bore the Bangbet logo.

However, despite the euphoria surrounding the sponsorship deal, fans have had to wear the old jerseys, which lacked the coveted shirt sponsor's branding, for three long months.

Currently, Shabana FC finds itself in the 15th position on the league table, trailing league leaders Gor Mahia by 16 points after 13 matches.

In their recent outing, Shabana managed to secure a hard-fought 1-1 draw against KCB at the Raila Odinga Stadium in Homa Bay County.

Tore Bobe's next challenge awaits as they prepare to face Kakamega Homeboyz at Bukhungu Stadium on Sunday, December 10.
