From unusual green, yellow and black to black, red and white colour combinations Orlando Pirates have over the years stirred debate with their kit designs. 

As the Buccaneers are about to launch their new Adidas strip for the 2015/16 season, City Press invites you, dear reader, to get the conversation going on what makes for an iconic soccer jersey. 

Last season, the former league champions returned to their traditional full black for their home strip under the theme – “Black is back!”. 

This after Pirates turned out in white jerseys for their home matches and mostly red shirts for away games during the 2013/14 campaign as a celebration of some of the club’s great kits over the years. 

Adidas will on Tuesday unveil the new Orlando Pirates home jersey for the 2015/16 season.

Ahead of the launch, City Press readers can win hampers worth R5 000 with the latest Pirates’ Adidas jersey included in the package.

Be part of the conversation and tell us which Pirates Adidas jersey stands out as the best so far.

To enter the competition, SMS us at 34217 and use the keyword ADIDAS. Please include your name. SMSes cost R1.50.

Normal competition terms and conditions apply. Winners will be contacted by telephone.
