These are the new home and away South Africa kits to be worn between 2011 and 2012 manufactured by Puma.
We reported in January that South Africa were very close to signing with Puma now the official kits have been released at a special conference in Johannesburg.
Puma will provide the official playing kits for all associated South African teams, including the National 'A', Youth and Women's teams. Puma is also SAFA's official partner in relation to replica kits, fanwear and other merchandise. The South African National A team will first wear the new Puma kit during their next fixture scheduled for the 10th August (opponents to be confirmed).
South Africa will become the twelfth current African international team to be currently outfitted by Puma, the German company is also supplying the Orange African Cup of Nations champions Egypt, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Cameroon, Algeria, Senegal, Morocco, Togo, Burkina Faso, Malawi and Namibia.
Kirsten Nematandani, President of the South African Football Association, said, "To announce this new commercial relationship with Puma is a great privilege for us, and we are very happy to have secured this deal. Puma's presence in African football really speaks for itself, and they were the most desirable company for us to align ourselves with. Their technical innovation and excellence is of course important, but more so is the heritage and support they have demonstrated for this continent over a number of years. They are the perfect partner as we strive to grow the profile of football in South Africa in the years to come."
