The two biggest football teams in South Africa. Rivals for as long as can be. Both teams recently launched their kits for the 2014/15 season.
In celebration of Nelson Mandela Day, I thought I’d take a look see at what’s been happening in the Southern Hemisphere with these two giants.
Kaizer Chiefs with the help of Nike. Orlando Pirates with the helps of adidas. Both, smart looking shirts.
The rich and classic tradition of Kaizer Chiefs is captured in this season’s new modern home kit with signature gold and black colors taking center stage.
The kit features a gold shirt with a high crewneck and cuffs to match, while there is a single, thick black stripe extended from the left shoulder to the chest with the Kaizer Chiefs logo positioned across both colors. Black shorts and gold socks with a black band complete the new home kit.
The new away shirt is blue, and features the single, thick stripe in gold, extended from the left shoulder to the chest. This jersey is paired with white shorts, while the socks are blue with a yellow trim.
In addition to featuring Nike’s authentic design insights, each new kit offers players the very latest in performance innovation, kit technology and environmental sustainability.
The new home and away kits will be available from Nike stores and leading retailers from July 17.
And for the Pirates.
I’ll let this video do the talking…
