Nike and the South African Football Association introduce the new home and away national team football kits for the African Cup of Nations in January 2015.
Nike have revealed the new home and away uniforms for South Africa ahead of their opening African Cup of Nations match against Algeria on 19th January 2015. The gold home jersey features a classic, flat green collar with a single gold stripe running on the inside back of the neckline, as well as green cuffs on the sleeves.
The King Protea - South Africa's national flower - is emblazoned on the left chest, with the SAFA logo centred below the front of the v-neck. The South African flag rests on the outer back of the neck with a solid gold stripe running down the side of the green shorts. Gold socks with a bold green top cuff complete the home look. The away jersey in contrast, is green and paired with gold shorts and green socks that use the same template as the home strip.
"The new kits are very light and have a great fit,” says South African footballer Sibusiso Vilakazi.“The simplicity of the design and the use of the green and gold make these striking kits and I can't wait to play in them."
The new South Africa football jersey will be available from Dec. 11 at select Nike stockists like Pro Soccer SA.
