Orlando Pirates unveil new 2013/14 home and away kit.

Last season the Club opted for a white home jersey as a celebration of some of the great Orlando Pirates team kits of yesteryear but for 2013/14 the Club has returned to full black for their home strip with some new designs.

Mickey Modisane, PRO at Orlando Pirates Football Club, added: “We are excited to return to black. We also wanted to involve the Club’s most ardent supporters in the campaign because we recognise the role of our supporters in the success of our Club. ‘Black is Back’ is a strong statement and we chose the phrase Ezimnyama Ngenkani to accompany it, as it perfectly describes the Club and its supporters – black and proud.”

Orlando Pirates will play in the jersey for the first time during the CAF Champions League game against AC Leopards of Congo at the Orlando Stadium on the 20th July 2013. However, due to tournament rules the jersey will be without the Vodacom logo on the front.

What do you think of the new kit?
