Soweto-based football giants Moroka Swallows launched their new kits at the Maponya Mall in Soweto.
The Dube Birds are proudly sponsored by market giants Volkswagen SA, PUMA and Old Mutual. The v1.10 speed kit, supplied by global sports brand PUMA, is inspired by the joy, rhythm and athleticism of Africa football and has the same design as that worn by Ghana, Algeria, Ivory Coast and Cameroon at the 2010 World Cup.
“This is the second season that the Birds will be wearing Puma kit. The new kit is exciting and has the same fit and technology that was seen with many of the African teams at the World Cup. We are looking forward to an exciting and successful campaign!” said Leon Prins, the managing director of Moroka Swallows.
The PSL team, coached by Rainer Zobel for the second season, has released superfluous members of its first team squad from last season and is looking lean and hungry for success in 2010/11.
“PUMA are proud to be associated with Swallows - one of the giants of the local soccer scene - and wish them a highly successful season. We believe that our new kit design will be a hit with both players and fans,” said Brett Bellinger, the Marketing Director of PUMA SA.
PUMA went to West Africa for inspiration for the revolutionized new v1.10 collection. Inspired by the joy, rhythm and athleticism of Africa football, products from the v1.10 series have been developed and tested for super speed-enhancing performance and to boost innovative styles of play by unleashing the confidence of players, teams and fans.
