The national football team jersey manufacturer and sponsor, Adidas, together with the 2010 Local Organising Committee, is calling on all South Africans to support the national soccer team. The Adidas Unite Mzansi Unite (UMU) campaign is aimed at uniting South Africans behind the 2010 FIFA World Cup. The tour has given the entire nation, from school children to celebrities, the opportunity to sign the giant jersey as a demonstration of their support. By signing the jersey, you will become part of history.
The giant jersey has been on a tour of South Africa using a huge branded truck. The campaign started in November last year and finishes in June this year - the eve of the start of the 2010 World Cup.
