WIN: A Bafana Bafana jersey
Sport24 and PUMA are giving away 10 Bafana Bafana jerseys ahead of this year's Africa Cup of Nations, to be hosted in South Africa, starting on Saturday, January 19.
South African artists Hasan and Husain Essop designed the Bafana Bafana kit. The brothers are among a group of artists from the Creative African Network commissioned to design kits inspired by their country’s heritage, culture and traditions.
The kit includes a rainbow graphic inspired by the phrase “Rainbow Nation” coined by Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
“Our design was influenced by South Africa’s diversity of cultures and how we have grown as a Nation. We worked with the PUMA design team to help us create a symbol that would reflect South African spirit. After hosting the 2010 FIFA World Cup™, South Africans have united across the country to support their team. The kit represents the unity within our country and at the same time reflects our strong African identity,” said the Essop brothers.
The kits are designed to maximise player’s performance. The jersey fits the body closely to avoid grabbing from the opponent and to enable players to exhibit their physical presence on the pitch. The fabric features PUMA’s U.S.P Moisture Management technology, which enhances airflow and body performance by dragging moisture away from the body and keeps the body at the ultimate performance temperature.
