NIKE South Africa unveiled the Kaizer Chiefs 40th Anniversary

Special Edition team football kit yesterday.

The kit, which draws inspiration from the glorious past of the

black and gold club, will be worn when Chiefs take on Bloemfontein Celtic at

Loftus tomorrow.

Amakhosi will continue to wear the kit during all home games this


The jersey recalls that worn by the Amakhosi 40 years ago, in that

it is predominantly black and featuring the iconic Kaizer Chiefs gold on the rib

collar, sleeves and cuffs.

Chief boss, Kaizer Motaung said: “ In this jersey we have gone back

to our roots, with the classic look and feel. There was a natural attachment to

the colour black when the club was formed, as this was the team colour of my

previous club, however it was the striking touch of gold which brought the

jersey to life.

There were many reasons on why we chose to add a touch of gold –

one being we were in a City of Gold, Johannesburg, and also that it was bright

and glamorous.”
