Zesco United replica’s have become a hot commodity in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania.
The clubs replica’s are a now sought after in Tanzania’s biggest city were in already does reasonably well and can be found Kariakoo Market which is the City’s main market.
Fans of Tanzanian giants Simba SC look like they are behind the huge demand in the replica’s and the motivation behind this is to help cheer on Zesco United when the Zambian’s will face Yanga FC on the weekend of the 13th of September in the Caf Champions League First Round, First Leg.
Simba SC and Yanga are huge rivals in Tanzania with practically most football fans supporting one of the two teams and both sets of fans support the opposing team whenever the two clubs play in Caf Competition.
This seasons Caf Champions League saw Simba invest heavily but they were knocked out of the Caf Champions League this past weekend by UD Songo of Mozambique and the clubs fans dont want Yanga to reach the group stage and get bragging rights so they have thrown their weight behind Zesco United.
Zambian Replica’s already sell modestly in Tanzania albeit they are not original replica’s but counterfeit with the top selling being Zesco United, Zanaco Fc and Nkana FC but with huge demand for Zesco replica’s they have all been sold out due to demand.
