Happier news for Nike in a week when they are rumoured to be losing the Manchester City and French FFF kit contracts. The American sportswear giant and the South Africa FA unveiled new kits for Bafana Bafana.
The new designs debut against Senegal in the World Cup qualifying round this coming weekend. Bafana Bafana must not lose or Senegal will be five points ahead of them after only two games.
South Africa 2016 – 17 Home Kit
This is the South Africa 2016-17 home kit:
The traditional colours of yellow and green receive a clean, straightforward makeover.
Nike’s template of alternate colours on shoulders and body of the shirt is gone, replaced with a one colour look. Bar the green stripe down either side of the shirt body, the top is entirely yellow.
The SAFA crest and Nike Logo feature in green on either breast with a commemorative badge separating the two.
Green shorts with yellow trim and yellow socks with green trim complete the kit.
SOUTH AFRICA 2016-17 AWAY KIT
This is the South Africa 2016-17 away jersey:
Nike uses the same template for the away kit as the home. Reversing the colours, the shirt is predominantly green while a yellow stripe runs down each side of the body.
The shorts are yellow with a green stripe down each leg. Completing the kit, the socks are green with yellow trim.
