According to the club's official website, the launch of the 2015/16 away kit gives the players and fans an opportunity to see a power red mist descend upon the Bidvest Stadium pitch this weekend when Orlando Pirates put their new jersey to the test when they entertain AS Kaloum in the CAF Confederations Cup Playoff second leg.
With the armband and dotted mesh around his arm, and a brand new V-necked collar, Oupa Manyisa will lead his men out of the dressing room at their temporary home-away-from-home in what will be the brightest and most vibrant away jersey that the Soweto Giants have sported in recent memory, thanks to the lighter red grading that blends itself upwards from the base of the shirt to the chest.
With the famous badge in 3D across the heart and the unmistakeable skull and cross bones embossed at the back, the 2015/16 jersey continues with the trend of not only being a top quality piece of football apparel, but also a fashionable garment off the field.
Adrian De Souza, Senior Category Manager at adidas South Africa was excited with the jersey, “This will be a trendy jersey that further entrenches a strong emotional connection with the Club and stimulates a pride in the jersey, particularly amongst the young supporters.”
