From now on, the Senegalese national basketball teams will be displayed with Addidas brand jerseys since the announcement of an agreement with the German firm has been formalized via a press release from the body.
In negotiations for several months, the Senegalese Basketball Federation and the German firm Adidas have reached an agreement. The body headed by Babacar Ndiaye informs that it has entered into a partnership with ADIDAS and its brand DERRICK ROSE which becomes its new equipment supplier. By joining forces with Senegal, Adidas signs a strategic partnership for its debut on the African continent.

She also congratulates Mr. Makhtar NDIAYE, former national team player and current personal adviser to the President of the FSBB who brilliantly piloted this file“, writes the press release.
