Orlando Pirates 18-19 Third (CAF Champions League) Jersey

The Buccaneers are one of only two South African teams and are also the first to lift the CAF Champions League, albeit having last played in the tournament in 2013 following a magical run that ended in defeat in the final.

Based on a standard Adidas template, the new Orlando Pirates 2018-19 CAF Champions League kit has classic and pure white-on-white colour scheme that features a black and white Orlando Pirates logo.

“We have passed a momentous milestone of 80 years of existence and in celebrating that achievement, the Club have been on a drive to close out an impressive chapter of our story by inducting five more legends to the 75 that are already immortalised in the annals of this institution. In keeping with the traditions which make this Club great, and in celebration of going back to a competition which we hold so dearly, we have brought back a jersey which resembles that which changed the fortunes of a select group of young men in 1995, and set the tone for what was to become one of the greatest eras in the Club’s and the nation’s rapidly bourgeoning football history,” said Tokoloho Moeketsi, Orlando Pirates Brand Activation Manager.

Bob Maphosa, Sports Marketing Manager for Adidas SA, said: “Orlando Pirates’ third kit is a modern take on some of the club’s legendary jerseys. It’s a great look for a Club that has such a rich history, but is constantly reinventing itself to maintain the highest standards of performance.”

The Adidas Orlando Pirates 18-19 limited edition 3rd jersey will be available from 6 December 2018.
