Kaizer Chiefs' new away jersey.

Kaizer Chiefs have unveiled the new away kit for the 2016/17 Absa Premiership season.

The new kit looks slightly similar to the one that was worn by Amakhosi in the Mandela Cup back in 2001.

“The 2001/02 jersey was worn by Nelson Mandela himself and the signed replica is one of the club’s most prized possessions. 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,” said 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.

“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.”

Chiefs will take on Soweto rivals Orlando Pirates in a Carling Black Label Cup match at FNB Stadium on Saturday.

The game is set to start at 3pm.
