When I saw a tweet saying that Kaizer Chiefs had released their new kit, I was absolutely delighted. But then I heard it had stripes and shivers ran down my spine. Why? you ask. Because the last time the team wore stripes it was hideous.
But then that first picture of the 2015/16 jersey popped onto my TL, and I nearly let out a high-pitched squeal. It is beautiful.
According to a press release on the club’s website, the kit celebrates the 45th anniversary of the club and the new design “infuses the clubs legacy and spirit, reflecting almost half a century of prestige and success.”
The kit is available for pre-sale via the Nike Football App and kaizerchiefs.com from July 17, and on sale in official retailers from July 23.
