South African Absa Premiership club Kaizer Chiefs has warned its supporters against buying facial masks branded with its colours as it has not produced such products.
In a statement on Tuesday, the Soweto giants advised its fans to buy face masks only from reputable suppliers.
When genuine Kaizer Chiefs-branded face masks are available, the club will inform its fans, the club said.
Below is the statement:
Kaizer Chiefs would like to bring it to the attention of supporters that the Club has not produced facial masks or licensed any individual/company to produce Kaizer Chiefs branded masks.
We are in the process of evaluating various options of masks to include in our licensing programme. When we have selected a mask that meets our standards, we will announce it on our platforms, and it will be available for sale in our retail stores and on the KC DigiStore.
Until then, we urge supporters to be wary of bad quality masks from unscrupulous dealers who are trying to cash in on the COVID-19 epidemic by selling counterfeit products bearing our logo or name.
They could potentially be detrimental to your health and well-being.
In the interim, if you require a mask, make sure you get one from a reputable supplier.
