The partnership was brought before the public on Friday, March 18 in Bologna-Italu during an event attended by representatives of both institutions plus other invited institutions including the local and international media.
The Italian firm have penned a three-year deal from the upcoming season and are expected to fully dress the Club’s personel plus provide auxiliary equipments like balls and bags for the life span of the relationship beginning the second half of this season.
“We have engaged with Canon because it is a great Club and their project entices us. That’s why we are joining them in achieving that,” The Africa Brand Manager Macron,
Francesco Ventura revealed during the deal before going on to mention that he had been a fan of the club since the 1990 FIFA World cup.
Macron kits Clubs across the World including UEFA and it’s the third most successful Sports kits provider today with branches and stores across over 30 countries since they first joined the Industry in 1971.
It is certainly a new era in the life of the ten times Cameroon champions and multiple CAF interclub competition winners whose marketing team lead by the celebrated Franck Ghislaine Onguene are stopping at nothing in the move to implement the new Kpa-Kpum project.
Canon’s Administrative council member Mathurin Ambassa expressed his satisfaction about the deal and stated it could be a springboard to push the Club to the top-flight Championship within the shortest time.
“I am very satisfied because this improves our visibility. It is an honor. This is going to boast us to work,”Francesco explained.
Canon is widely considered as the most successful Cameroon Club especially on the continental scene and most recently they have embarked on a branding campaign which has brought some new faces and partners to the Club including cereals food producers Broli and national flight corporation giant CAMAIRCO.
The boys from the capital town, Yaounde, are preparing for their fourth season since their return to the Cameroon Elite One championship and expected to make a serious claim for good results under coach Minkreo Birwe when the league resumes this weekend after an over eight months AFCON and internal squabbles-imposed break.
