The new PUMA South Africa kit was also launched in Johannesburg today, by South African captain Stephen Pienaar along with Bongani Khumalo, Itumeleng Khune and Katlego Mphela. The South African national team will debut the new PUMA kit during their next fixture scheduled for the 10th August (opponents to be confirmed).
Featuring the very latest innovations of PUMA technology, the kit incorporates performanceenhancing fabric through moisture wicking properties, mesh inserts on the side for improved ventilation and embossed fabric to enhance the aesthetic appearance. The shirt will also feature both the Protea and SAFA badges. In line with PUMA’s CSR commitment to Africa, all proceeds from replica home shirt sales of the launch kit, will be donated to the SOS Children Villages in South Africa, a cause designated by the South African Football Association.
South Africa become the twelfth African international team to be outfitted by PUMA, following in the footsteps of African Cup of Nations champions Egypt, as well as Ghana, Ivory Coast, Cameroon, Algeria, Senegal, Morocco, Togo, Burkina Faso, Malawi and Namibia.
