The unveiling ceremony was well attended and officials, supporters, fans and well-wishers showed their love by purchasing the new colourful UMBRO jerseys.

After a staunch supporter had bought the first auctioned shirt at 1,000ghc, CEO of Tema Youth caused a stir by signing a cheque for 20,000ghc to buy and show his support for the Hearts of Oak renaissance.

''It's a wonderful day for all Phobians fans and I know many supporters are happy with the unveiling of the jersey and credit has to go the Board Chairman of the club and my predecessors.
