Cape Town - Following the launch of the Kaizer Chiefs' new home jersey, the club and Nike introduce the new away kit for the 2016/17 season.

Featuring Nike’s unique Dri-FIT fabric technology, the strip retains the club’s traditional colour combination.

The front body of the jersey is halved in harlequin style down the centre, with black fading into gold on one side and gold fading into black on the other.

The back body of the shirt is predominantly black, covering the area where the players’ names and numbers appear, fading into gold towards the bottom of the garment.

The sleeves are black and there is a gold band around the back of the v-neck collar.

The new offerings received the enthusiastic approval of Chiefs’ Marketing Director, Jessica Motaung.

"It is necessary for teams to have two strips to avoid colour clashes when travelling away and we are delighted with the designs Nike have come up with," she said.

"In addition to being a perfect way of celebrating the 15th anniversary - and extension of our contract - with our technical sponsors, the new kit will bring style to the playing field and also offer our supporters some variety in the way they express their loyal support for the club.” 

Motaung went on to suggest that the new jersey might remind some older Amakhosi fans of the first kit Nike designed for Kaizer Chiefs back in 2001, in which they won the continental Mandela Cup competition. 

“The 2001/02 jersey was worn by Nelson Mandela himself and the signed replica is one of the club’s most prized possessions,” she continues, “as we celebrate Mandela month in South Africa, and our renewed partnership with Nike, we felt the need to reflect on this history of Kaizer Chiefs.”
