Orlando Pirates unveil new kit
Soweto giants, Orlando Pirates together with Adidas have revealed the new home and away kit for 2020/2021 season. This comes after their big rivals, Kaizer Chiefs also revealed their new jersey few days ago.
New jersey also has a new skull emblem that is different from the old one. Another unique addition to the new kit is the introduction of an orange colour which brought mixed emotions from soccer fans.
Earlier on Tuesday, Pirates was trending with a hashtag #OrlandoPirates as tweeps were having a field day criticising the new kit.
“The striking design of our new kit shows that we’re constantly progressing as a club, while retaining our distinctive visual identity and logo. The result is a kit that keeps the traditions that are woven into our heritage and DNA, while signalling a fresh era for South Africa’s most-loved team,” said Pirates Media Officer, Thandi Merafe.
The new kit will be available for pre-ordering from September 20th, online at piratesshop.co.za and for sale from October 8th, 2020 at adidas.co.za, concept stores and at selected sports retailers across the country at a retail price of R799.
