Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs' playing jersey is in demand globally after being voted by FourFourTwo as the best in the world for 2018/19.

Chiefs' gold home and purple away jerseys beat Boca Juniors, Aston Villa, Fulham and Sampdoria in the top five of FourFourTwo's list of the 20 best this season.

The publication wrote: "Oh yes. Kaizer Chiefs have produced two delightful kits for the current season: first, a gold home jersey with black strips which represent 'traditional spears rising together to create a sense of motion and unity on the field'.

"The second is a stunning purple-bodied, black-sleeved change strip with some fetching splashes of gold on the collar, crest and Nike swoosh. Now, where can we buy one... or 10?"

Amakhosi's marketing director, Jessica Motaung, revealed that the kit has now courted interest abroad.

"It amplifies the brand for those who do know us, but also introduces us to new markets who don't," Motaung said.

"Funnily enough, in the last two weeks I've gotten very interesting requests for us to increase our distribution to the UK, and also to other parts of the world.

"So it's also very good in that it's going to increase sales internationally. I think it also will on our Digistore, where we deliver internationally too."

Kaizer Chiefs have the biggest social media reach of all football clubs in South Africa, with Soweto rivals Orlando Pirates their closest competitors.
