The new black jersey with white strips jersey was revealed today.
The club has retained its iconic black strip, which made a dramatic return in 2013 with the highly successful Black is Back campaign. However, this year’s jersey has lighter shading on the chest which gives it more depth and a striking, more modern look.
The 3D badge which proudly adorns the heart of the jersey completes the design, which is on global par with adidas football giants Chelsea, Manchester United and Juventus.
“We worked with Orlando Pirates to develop what we believe is a trendy jersey that is appealing to the fans, instils a sense of pride, and further entrenches a strong emotional connection with the club” said Adrian De Souza, Senior Category Manager Football, adidas South Africa.
“We are excited to introduce “The Spirit Never Dies”, an adidas Orlando Pirates campaign that encapsulates that proud heritage that the Buccaneers stand for.”
The Buccaneers, together with their Soweto rivals Kaizer Chiefs, are currently in Swaziland to take part in the King’s Super Cup which will be played at Somhlolo Stadium tomorrow.
Pirates will play Royal Leopards in the semi-final, whilst Amakhosi will take on Mbabane Swallows.
