The Kaizer Chiefs New Jersey

Written By Themba Khumalo on Wednesday, June 29, 2011 | Wednesday, June 29, 2011

This here is a response to all those who wanted to know what I think of the Amakhosi new kit.

1. First of all, let me point out that; I "support" Kaizer Chiefs, not like them.

2. With that being said, I think we should also acknowledge the fact that Nike has been our sponsor for years, so they have an idea of what we as supporter/fans want.

3. Also let’s note that, this kit was designed by a professional designer(s), they went to school to do these kinds of things. So let’s bear in mind that they knew what they were doing. I personally don’t think Nike would go out to embarrass a big team like Kaizer Chiefs, there is a lot of money involved here, millions of Rands to be exact, so there is no way that a big brand like Nike would want to throw that down the pit.

4. For a long time, I have wanted to see my team having something different from the team’s sponsored by Nike and it has finally happened.

5. Every time Kaizer Chiefs launches a new kit, "people" (I am not sure if its the fans, supporters or other teams fans and supporters, especially those of that team from Orlando) complain about the kit, its design, "style", swagg e.t.c - Now the most surprising thing is that come the start of the season, you find thousands of them wearing it on match day or just on the streets, showing their support. (Bear in mind that the kit is normally launched end of June or beginning of July, so it just takes some few weeks then everyone gets happy and starts buying)

6. Also note that the contract between Kaizer Chiefs and Nike has a clause that each and every kit will be used for 24monts (or two seasons, in terms of the football calendar) before a new one can be launched. So to all those who have a problem with these kit and have publicly announced that the will not be buying it, here it is, wait for 24 months before you see a different one.

7. I, Todd Kabo Kebinatau, think the new kit is awesome. For sure it’s not what I expected, but it’s still beautiful. As I have said, Nike and Kaizer Chiefs are big brands, so there is no way any of them would want to ruin another the other party, as that would mean both parties make massive losses.

I must also point out that technology has been introduced in the game and it continues to dominate many aspects of it (the game).With that being said, I wasn’t surprised to learn that this is the lightest jersey to have ever been made by Nike, thus far or to these date. Now this just goes to show how much effort and work has been put in designing and manufacturing this beauty of a jersey.

For me this is the best jersey I have seen in a long time, seriously. It just takes us back to days that many of us missed, when these Glamour Boys of our used to win cups and get three points as if they were for free. All in all, the kit is beautiful; it’s just that we haven’t had time to look at it with a closer look. I say, lets give it time, very soon shops will be running short of stock as we will be getting it like it’s not sold.

This very kit is full glamour and it suits us the Glamour Boys very well. It fully resembles the Kaizer Chiefs brand which is of style and difference. We have now set a trend and very soon teams are going to follow suit with what we have done.

NB: To all those who don’t like it, please note that this kit is here to stay, so I humbly suggest that you find it within yourselves to accept that and get on with supporting the team. Or you could just stop paying your membership card and burn it, thus stop supporting Amakhosi, if that’s how much you hate this kit, something I believe wont happen.

Simply put this kit was meant for us, its very different from other teams jerseys as you may have noticed and we are also different, which is a special thing.

I understand that soccer is a game of opinions; therefore I will allow you to leave your views and feeling of this kit here. Leave your thoughts, views and comments and I will personally make sure that they get to the Kaizer Chiefs Brands Manager Dara Caroll. But make sure you don’t use any abusive language, please.

Who are you convincing. U or yourself.

The technology, great.
The design, yak.
Not that the designers did not know what they were doing, but what is this?

What is the story behind the rays on the jersey. Is Kaizer Chiefs introducing a new element to its brand?

I personally think that this jersy is fine, considering the history and if you remember, chiefs use to play with a stripped T-shirt, remember the days of BPtop8 and castle what what.

The new T-shirt brings back those days of glory, the design and technology improved, i'm getting myself one, the away one...i say awesome, i just wonder why we not talking about it.

YEnde & Jnr look good on that shirt! Think will take a while foe ppl to get used to the design!
Think the Rays r perfect go along wit the Khosi trademark!

July 8, 2011 at 6:35 AM

Oh well, its ok. Although it's kinda distracting, its too busy. I suppose its not what most ppl would have expected from Chiefs, mara they will get used to it.

July 8, 2011 at 2:10 PM

It will be total disgusting if our views as Amakhosi supporters are being undermined and some one go and write this rubbish. Its clear that this new jersey is ugly & really bad. i dont see the reason why we should learn to like as supporters when we did not liked it at the first place. Pls stop making clouns of us we love Amakhosi but this jersey is rubbish. Do sumting abt it.

July 15, 2011 at 10:39 PM

There is nothing wrong with this jersey. For how long should a particular jersey be in the picture? We need to be consistent with times. Keep it up MAKHOSI.
