Following the successful launch of the power red away jersey in June, adidas has unveiled the new Orlando Pirates Football Club home kit for the upcoming 2015/16 season.
This season’s mantra is “The Spirit Never Dies”, and it speaks to the resilient and loyal nature of The Ghost, the Orlando Pirates supporter, who remains unwavering in their support and dedication to the Club through thick and thin. Orlando Pirates is more than a football club, more than just a brand…it is about community and legacy, and the stories they write go down in history forever.
With that history and the supporter in mind, the new home jersey was conceptualized to enhance performance on the field, as well as remaining a trendy and fashionable item off it.
The club has retained its iconic black strip, which made a dramatic return in 2013 with the highly successful Black is Back campaign. However, this year’s jersey has lighter shading on the chest which gives it more depth and a striking, more modern look.
We also see the return of the popular V-shaped neck, as well as the classic skull and crossbones embossed on the back of the jersey. The 3D badge which proudly adorns the heart of the jersey completes the design, which is on global par with adidas football giants Chelsea, Manchester United and Juventus.
