Bafana go all-white for Brazil
Cape Town - Sports apparel company, Nike, on Wednesday revealed the South African national soccer team’s kit that Bafana Bafana will wear when they take on Brazil in their international friendly on March 5 at the FNB Stadium in Soweto.
According to the Soccer-Laduma website
, for the first time, the South African national football team will see themselves in an all-white limited edition away kit for the 2014 season.
Despite being their away kit, to avoid a clash with Brazil's gold jerseys, Bafana will wear the all-white top.
The new limited edition away kit features a simplistic, yet classic design. The all-white jersey boasts the SAFA logo and Protea emblem on either side of the chest, while the South African flag sits proudly on the outer back of the neck. White shorts and socks complete the look.
The jersey is made with Nike Dri-FIT technology which aids performance by helping to regulate player body temperature over the course of a match, while pulling moisture away from the skin to the outside of the garment where it evaporates more quickly.
The new kit is exclusively available to the South African Football Association’s (SAFA) national team structures until December 2014.
Both Nike and SAFA are then expected to unveil the 2015/16 kit in November 2014.
