AmaZulu Football Club and adidas on Friday unveiled the new home and away shirts for the 2011/12 football season.
Inspiration & Design
According to Kevin Jooste, the Football Category Manager at adidas SA, the home shirt takes inspiration from AmaZulu’s heritage. “We decided with the club to incorporate some forrest green into the jersey, creating a link with the heritage of the club,” he says.
In addition, there is an embossing of the AmaZulu logo on the back of the jersey to add value to the jersey. For the away kit the club has stuck to the traditional white with twilight green stripes.
“We are grateful to adidas for the world class kit that they have produced for the club. We would like to urge our fans to go out and buy the new jersey and wear it with pride when attending our matches,” says Lunga Sokhela, the Marketing Manager at AmaZulu Football Club.
Both jerseys feature Climacool Technology- a combination of performance fabrics, open mesh and ventilation channels which keep cool air flowing in and heat and sweat flowing out. Climacool works by considering how and where the body produces heat and sweat, focussing on specific fabric and garment features in those zones.
The effect is that athletes stay dry, comfortable and perform at their peak in even the most heated competitions.
The new home and away kits will be available in retail stores from 16th July at a recommended retail price of R449.
The following players were at the adidas store at the Gateway Shopping Mall to sign autographs for the fans.
