Nike and SAFA have unveiled the new 2016-2017 national teams kits – this comes ahead of Bafana Bafana’s 2018 World Cup Russia qualifier against Senegal next on Saturday, 12 November 2016. Bafana Bafana will debut the new home kit in this match.

The kits aim to inspire a new era of success for the South African Senior Men’s National Team and to spark brilliance in the players’ on-pitch performances.


Nike brings a fresh design and new innovation to the national team kit, such as the laser cut ventilation, which keeps the athletes cool while performing at high levels of pressure. The design of the jersey also seeks to provide less distraction for athletes so they can perform at their best.

The sides of the home kit features green colour reveal tape that run the length of the shirt and shorts. Expanding when the player is in motion, they are designed to maximize ventilation and reveal bold flashes of green. In the home kit, yellow socks showcase a linear green graphic on the calf. Both highlight the most dynamic part of the footballer’s body, the lower legs, to accentuate speed.

The away kit has the inverse design on the shirt – all green with yellow colour reveal tape on the sides of the shirt.

Look at any Nike or Adidas design - all lazy. The look at UA / NB / Erima / Hummel / Errea / Kappa, even Puma and Kappa - all make an effort ! Time for Nike to bid adieu !

"Nike brings a fresh design and new innovation to the national team kit"

Nike really are taking the piss now. Same template as about 3478 teams have. Must have sacked half their design team.
