South African soccer giants Orlando Pirates and clothing apparel company Adidas have unveiled the Buccaneers' new kit for the upcoming 2020/21 season set to start next month.

One of the big changes this season is that the Pirates traditional badge has been replaced with the skull and crossbones emblem on both jerseys, the club said in a statement released.

The away kit in particular is sure to get fans talking, with its striking orange colourway.

It is the first time in the club's history that the colour is being used, and it is seen as an expression of confidence  that reflects the team's spirit.

The new kit stays true to Pirates' iconic black and white colours, with the home jersey in all black, with white stripes on the shoulder and a white V-neck.

The bold orange of the away jersey is finished off with the classic three black adidas stripes on the shoulders.

"The striking design of our new kit shows that we're constantly progressing and growing as a club, while retaining our distinctive visual identity and logo," said Thandi Merafe, Media Officer of Orlando Pirates Football Club.

"The result is a kit that keeps the traditions that are woven into our heritage and DNA, while signalling a fresh era for South Africa’s most-loved team."
