This is a US des Forces Armées 2018-19 home jersey featuring the number of star striker Aristide Bancé.

US des Forces Armées (most commonly referred to as USFA) compete in the Burkinabé Premier League, the top tier of football in Burkina Faso. They have traditionally been one of the countries most successful clubs, having won the league title on 7 occasions, the fourth most of any club in the league’s history. The Ouagadougou-based club are operated by the sports division of the Burkina Faso Armed Forces and play home at their own stadium, the Stade de l’USFA. Their most recent title was the 2015 Coupe du Faso, where they defeated ASF Bobo Dioulasso 3-0 in the final.

Bancé has become one of the world’s most travelled footballers, playing for 21 different clubs since debuting at senior club level in 2000. The majority of his career has been spent playing in Germany, the Middle East and Africa, however in 2019 he made a much-publicised return to his home country of Burkina Faso when he was unveiled as their latest signing. He is considered a legend of Burkinabé football, having scored 22 goals in 75 international matches since debuting for ‘Les Étalons’ in 2003. This record places Bancé as his country’s 2nd highest all-time goalscorer and 5th most-capped player.
