In March, a number of fans criticised the design of the Zebras home kit, manufactured by Umbro. The kit was launched days after BFA unveiled Umbro as a technical sponsor on a three-year deal, replacing local brand, All Kasi.

At the time of the kit launch, BFA spokesperson, Tumo Mpatane said despite strong criticism, the association was very happy with the kit.
