Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs and Nike have launched an incredible 2020/21 home and away collection that pays tribute to the club’s rich heritage.
Following an unsuccessful 2019/20 campaign, where the club failed to pick up any silverware, the Glamour Boys will be hoping for an even better campaign, which has also seen them appoint Gavin Hunt as the new coach and legends Arthur Zwane and Dillon Sheppard as his assistants.
Below, are images of the new kits, courtesy of Chiefs’ website:
In light of their 50th anniversary and looking ahead to the next 50 years, Chiefs revealed that their new kit pays tribute to the club’s heritage.
“It’s a great coincidence that we launch and announce next season’s jerseys during Heritage month in South Africa,” Jessica Motaung, the club’s Marketing Director said on Chiefs’ official website.
“The home jersey is a strong symbol of the lion’s mane. And this is fitting for our Chairman Kaizer Motaung who started this institution 50 years ago. We are now paving the way for the next 50 years as we move to the next generation of Chiefs’ lions and leaders. As Amakhosi we say you can’t stop the passion of our supporters as they are the catalyst for the brand.”
“As a country and a club, we have been through much in the past few months. We now have a new sense of urgency to do better. The new collection is unconventional in design and colourful, it’s exactly what we need – the unexpected.”
“Gold and black are our traditional colours, while blue is the colour of the sky and sea. It is often associated with royalty, depth and stability. It symbolises trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith and the truth. It is futuristic and represents the technological aspects of the jersey.”
