The Orlando Pirates 2016-2017 away shirt sees a significant change in color after last season's away strip was red. The Club has gone back to the traditional white jersey with the new 16-17 jersey, while keeping a touch of Power Red with a striking band on the front. Showcasing the iconic black Adidas stripes across the shoulder, Orlando Pirates' new away kit has a v-collar to complete the modern design.

Orlando Pirates Brand Activation Manager, Tokoloho Moeketsi, is excited about the new designs and hopes the two jerseys continue in the legacy of keeping the Club a market leader in the apparel stakes. "Orlando Pirates is a Club steeped in great history, and as we approach our 80th Anniversary, we felt that it was important to honor certain elements of that history in the executions of our new jerseys. We are proud of our new jerseys and look forward to seeing them both on the field and in the stands."
