Another jersey for Bafana fans

2010-04-27 14:45

South African soccer fans can expect another Bafana Bafana jersey launch before the 2010 Fifa World Cup kicks off on 11 June.

This would be the third jersey launch for the South African public ahead of the much-awaited soccer spectacle.

The South African Football Association (Safa) and its sponsor, Adidas, will launch the new supporters’ jersey by mid-May as part of their effort to close the gap for the parallel market and the expanding counterfeit market.

The yellow jersey, to be specifically made for fans, will hit the shelves of clothing retail stores across the country, selling at R199.

“People have shown that they love the team hence we’re working this hard to have the jersey ready by May. It will be a new design.

“Look at the response we had in our Football Friday campaign. People want to support the team and we cannot afford to disappoint them,” said Safa boss Leslie Sedibe.
