Fabrice Muamba Announced As Ambassador For Klabu As They Launch New Kit

KLABU, the organisation that powers access to sport in refugee camps, has today announced ex-professional footballer and former refugee Fabrice Muamba as an official ambassador as part of their new kit reveal.

For those not in the know, the KLABU Foundation builds and operates KLABU Clubhouses in refugee camps. As well as the amazing work they do across Africa and soon around the world, KLABU also provides streetwear-inspired kits, and these are some wavy designs we’re talking about. For their latest collection they’re boasting a new front of shirt partner, global sportswear branding and labeling manufacturer, Avery Dennison, the official names and number partner for The Premier League, Real Madrid, F.C.Barcelona, Bayern Munich. They were integral in the launch of KLABU’s first home and away kits supplying trims, badges and heat transfers to adorn the already strikingly designed range.

Inspired by the KLABU mission of opening up opportunities through sports and connecting a global community, the new kit collection is themed ‘One Club’ with the aim that sport and fashion lovers across the world will be encouraged to buy a kit knowing it will help to make a difference to the lives of young people in refugee camps.

Muamba, who arrived in England aged 11 following civil war in his native Zaire (now the Democratic Republic of Congo), was keen to lend his support to KLABU after learning about its commitment to unlocking sports for the overlooked. Speaking about his new role as a KLABU Ambassador, he said “I am really proud that I have been asked to help highlight the work of this amazing organisation. Football was my escape route from the stress of what was going on around me, a way to make new friends, so I know how important it is for refugees to be provided with opportunities to make their lives better through sport.

I have bought kits for myself and my family and I hope many more people will do the same, you get a cool kit and you are supporting a great cause.
