Pirates' New Jerseys Reminiscent Of Kits From The Past

Orlando Pirates and adidas launched the club's new kit for the forthcoming ABSA Premiership season, and it is reminiscent of other kits from the past. Do you know which ones we are talking about?

The Buccaneers will don a plain black kit with white wide stripes across the right shoulder, while the away jersey is the same but with the colours inverted.

Since the unveiling, fans have had fun digging in the jersey archives, and some have pulled out some kits from the years gone by. Interestingly, there is a striking similarity to this year's jersey.

Moroka Swallows' kit from 1994 also boasted the wide stripes on the shoulder, as did Liverpool's home and away jerseys back in 1991.

Check them out below!

The new kit is very retro, and many have embraced the new look. Are you a fan of the new kit?

Honestly!! This kit was meant to be a tough competitor against the new Kaizer Chiefs Kit, But this Zebra-Shoulder spoiled everything. Therefore the new Kaizer Chiefs Kit will remain the very nice Kit in PSL ahead of the 2017/2018 season and even beyond. I would like to advise PSL teams to get rid of Zebra stripes especially on the right shoulder. Good Day Bloggers!!

I will not buy this jersey. After a poor season adidas just designed this with their eyes closed.

A total vintage of Liverpool (1991) and Moroka Swallows (1994) kodwa we are not zebra's but symbolizes a capability of winning thrice in a single season, wait and watch. Nizofa yibhakaniya kule season.

Come on guys wonke ama team ayaba nonyaka ongemuhle but that does not mean the players are bad, the very same players can still make u happy, I played football I've been a coach the very same u guys wanted nothing to do with Senzo Meyiwa, Lucky Lekgwati, and even manyisa in his early days but things changed the guys won us double triple, u didn't like mbuyane the list is endless. The team will be back mark my words.
