FAZ Launches New Kopa Kit: Chipolopolo To Don It Againts Cote d’Ivoire


The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) has launched the third improved version of the Kopa kit at Protea Hotel in Ndola.

Chipolopolo are expected put on the new Kopa jersey on Saturday as they face Ivory Coast in the Africa Cup qualifier at Levy Mwanawasa in Ndola.

Minister of Sports Director John Zulu and FAZ President Andrew Kamanga officiated at the event.

In his speech, Zulu hailed FAZ for initiating the idea of Kopa jerseys.

“The creation and continued improvement of the Kopa jersey brand is an admirable aspect commercialisation of sport worthy supporting,” Zulu said.

Kamanga said urged the media to promote the Kopa brand which has been criticized by some people.

“We are happy that the Zambian people have fully supported the KoPa brand making it possible for us to launch this third-generation stripe,” Kamanga said.

“The launch of this kit also adds colour to the Copper Queens’ FIFA World Cup campaign that is in high gear,” he said.


  1. Improved? What is the improvement? We always wear those colours. What idea has been initiated?
    :….hailed FAZ for initiating the idea of Kopa jerseys…..which has been criticised by some people”
    The report should say what are the criticisms.

  2. The Women’s team has adopted a white jersey. Did FAZ not realise how difficult it will be to have our ladies play in such a kit if any of them is on her period? England has moved from white to blue.

  3. Introducing KoPa brand was the best thing as the nation team was in desperate need to have one. It’s worthy appreciating that the kit looks authentic and a quality matching other brands. Hope we can keep this momentum or possibly taking it to another level. It can take over the other brands and dress African teams. Thumbs up whoever came up with this idea
