Speaking about the new jersey, Tokoloho Moeketsi, Pirates' Brand Activation Manager, said, "This is a special year for us: we’re celebrating 80 years of existence, and we’re back in the CAF Champions League for the first time in five years. To celebrate a competition which we hold so dear, we have brought back a jersey which resembles the one that set the tone for one of the greatest eras in the club’s history,”
Meanwhile, Bob Maphosa, Sports Marketing Manager for adidas SA said, “Orlando Pirates’ third kit is a modern take on some of the club’s legendary jerseys. It’s a great look for a Club that has such a rich history, yet constantly reinventing itself to maintain the highest standards of performance.”
