Kaizer Chiefs has this week unveiled its new home gear for 2015/16 season. The new home gear symbolises the club’s 45th anniversary.
The new design infuses the club’s legacy and spirit, reflecting almost half a century of prestige and success.
A thin black ribbon is featured around the contemporary and lightweight crew neck collar, which sets off the gold shoulders and sleeves.
The team will have the option to wear the traditional Kaizer Chiefs black or gold home shorts, with gold socks completing the kit.
The new Kaizer Chiefs home 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.
While this new kit reflects the club’s heritage, it also benefits from Nike’s innovative technological advances, driving optimal performance and environmental sustainability.
This new lightweight kit, with greater ventilation than ever before, was created to work with the body in football motion and encourage even more fluid movement.
For optimum ventilation, the new and improved fit of the shirt is firm and tight around the shoulders, and looser around the waist.
The shirt also boasts a new innovation this season. The sleeves are now constructed as a single panel across the shoulders to provide both a contemporary and a tighter look, with a stronger and more imposing presence on the pitch.
The shirt features Nike’s best-ever performance neckline, crafted to be almost unnoticeable for players.
Nike Dri-FIT technology draws sweat away from the body to the exterior of the jersey and short, where it quickly evaporates, keeping players cooler, drier and more comfortable.
Laser-cut ventilation holes and mesh panels in key areas are designed to improve performance by increasing air circulation and helping regulate body temperature.
