Cape Town - Orlando Pirates unveiled their new home and away jersey for the upcoming 2016/17 season which details a timeless look.

The Buccaneers have had a busy off-season with replacing Eric Tinkler as head coach and an influx of new arrivals at the club.

Muhsin Ertugral has taken charge following his impressive mentorship of Mpumalanga Black Aces (Now Cape Town City FC) in the Absa Premiership last season.

The Turkish coach has brought in a number of fresh faces including former Bafana Bafana defender Bradley Carnell as his assistant.

And with keeping things new and fresh, Pirates have gone for a "timeless" look with modern twist when they released their 2016/17 jersey.

Meanwhile, a solitary goal from Thamsanqa Gabuza was enough to see the Buccaneers defeat Bloemfontein Celtic in a friendly match played at the Orlando Stadium.
