South African footballer, Sibusiso Vilakazi told safa.net, “The new kit is very light and has a great fit. The simplicity of the design and the use of the colour green and gold makes this a striking kit and I can’t wait to play in it.”
The gold home jersey features a classic flat green collar with a single gold stripe on the inside back of the collar, and green cuffs on the sleeves. The Protea crest sits perfectly on the left chest, with the SAFA logo centred below the front of the V-neck. The South African flag rests on the outer back of the neck.
A solid gold stripe runs down the sides of the paired green shorts. Gold socks with a bold green top cuff complete the home kit.
The away jersey is green, paired with gold shorts and green socks, with the same features as the home kit.
The jersey and shorts feature a slimmer fit that is more tailored to the body, enabling players to perform better without the moisture drag.
“We are very proud of our new kit which reflects the pride of our nation and the future of great football. Bafana Bafana are shining through to the African Cup of Nations and the new kit is an inspirational one, pushing them to fight against past missed opportunities, while reflecting on past accomplishments,” says Danny Jordaan, President, South African Football Association.
