The likes of Eddie Motale, Lucky Lekgwathi, Jerry Sikhosana and Helman Mkhalele were all present as the Buccaneers unveiled their colours for the new season, with the retro style taking fans back to Adidas’ jerseys of the 1990s.
Adidas said of the jersey, “With football apparel becoming increasingly viewed as a lifestyle product worn beyond the stadium, the new range is designed to deliver unique streetwear style which our fans and supporters will celebrate and enjoy.
“Orlando Pirates will go into the new season with (the) kit that delivers advanced performance as well as a new contemporary look. The black home kit with white trim and white away kit with black trim has a clean and sleek appearance, with the Adidas three stripes placed on the shoulder to bring a retro football feel.
“Climacool technology provides heat and moisture management in the most testing conditions, as does Climalite technology in the shorts that removes the need for an inner mesh. The club crest is heat applied while a debossed skull and cross bones on the back of the jersey brings out the personality of this unique team.”
Pirates will wear their new home strip for the first time when they face Kaizer Chiefs in the Carling Black Label Cup on August 29th.
