Defending South African Premier Soccer League (called the ABSA Premiership for sponsorship purposes) champions Kaizer Chiefs FC have unveiled their 2013/14 Nike home jersey.
According to a press release from Nike: In a departure from the diagonal stripes proudly sported by last season’s double-title champions and South Africa’s most celebrated club, the Kaizer Chiefs’ new home kit goes back to basics with the return of the gold jersey for the upcoming season, which kicks off in August.
In keeping with the club’s traditional gold and black colours, the new jersey pays homage to the club’s rich heritage, evoking memories of the team’s first league title in the 1970s.
The new kit references the success of the “Glamour Boys” of this period and is further inspired by the Chiefs’ return to glory with its 2012-13 season victory.
The classically-styled gold jersey features a black collar and black trim on the sleeves. The iconic “Chief” insignia is embossed on the inside back of the neck, a point of pride for Kaizer Chiefs players.
The new home shorts are black, paired with gold socks with a solid black stripe.
