“Leaked” pictures of the new Kaizer Chiefs kit have not gone too well with the club’s fan base.
Kit sponsor Nike has given the Glamour Boys some world-renowned strips in the past few seasons, with the club making some global lists for the best kit of the season.

However, the latest design that has been bandied about as what Amakhosi will don in the new season has caused a bit of a stir, but not for the best reasons.
In keeping with the tradition of reinventing some iconic strips, as was the case in the recently-concluded season, the supposed 2020/21 home strip is reminiscent of the famous kit that was donned by the likes of Chiefs legends Shane McGregor and Doctor Khumalo in the late 80s.
The away kit is unlike anything the Soweto giants have worn before, with royal blue as the as the dominant colour.
In their 2018/19 campaign, Amakhosi’s home jersey was violet, previously unseen at Naturena.
They reverted back to an away strip dominated by the colour white in the next season.

This is really nice, personally I would buy it immediately after the release. The neck design is dope. And it doesn’t go far away from the 19/20 design pic.twitter.com/6ZGRym7uEm
