“Over the coming seasons, we will be supplying gear to Ali Royals from our major sponsors TiDi Nation, and other suppliers and donors.” he added.
In Ghana, club founder Ali Yakubu said “Thank you to Durham City, the committee, the players, and all involved. We appreciate your support and we wish The Citizens all the best for the remainder of the season.”
