More sauce coming from South Africa, with PUMA unveiling the new Mamelodi Sundowns F.C. home and away kits for the 21/22 season. They arrive in the club’s traditional colours of yellow, green and blue, with each shirt featuring a unique traditional hand-printed treatment inspired by African art and fashion.

South Africa is something of a wild arena for shirt design, with the vibrancy of he culture spilling onto the shirt designs. We’ve seen Nike producing some standout kits for Kaizer Chiefs over the years, and adidas doing likewise for Orlando Pirates, and PUMA continue to drop the drip for reigning DStv Premiership champions, Mamelodi Sundowns, unveiling the club's new home and away shirts. The Sundowns continue to dominate South African football with 11 Premier Soccer League (PSL) titles to their name including the last four in a row, as well as the prestigious CAF Champions League.

Sundowns are known as Bafana Ba style, as they always lead the way in pushing both the football and style culture,” said Brett Bellinger, Marketing Director PUMA South Africa. “We believe the striking new kit will ensure Masandawana remain the envy of many fans and provide a strong statement about Mamelodi Sundowns FC African roots, aspirations and achievements across both South Africa and the continent. The playing kit features the latest PUMA tech as seen on the recently launched Manchester City and AC Milan kits and is made from 100% recycled polyester to ensure PUMA’s continued focus on sustainability follows into football kit development.

Beautifully bespoke, the kit design is carried across both the home and away shirts, with the home adopting the traditional yellow and green colourings which, when paired with the blue shorts, combine for a a definite Brazilian vibe. Let’s face it, there’s worse teams to emulate, and the club’s success more than matches that of the Seleção. On the away shirt, that bold graphic stands out all the more, executed in the two-tone blues. The Mamelodi Sundowns crest appears on the left chest of both the home and away shirts with the PUMA logo on the right as well as on the sleeves.

We are excited to reveal the newest kit for the 2021/2022 season. This unique football jersey pays homage to the natural greatness that is found across the African continent. Looking at the individual elements on the design, they depict the rivers, deserts and mountain ranges found all the way from the North right through to the South. Our supporters can expect to wear a trendy jersey that stands out amongst the crowd and is a proud statement of African excellence. The launch of this unique shirt marks the 5th year anniversary of Mamelodi Sundowns’ CAF Champions League victory; it represents the clubs ambitions to become the best Football Club on the continent and share our African artistry with the world,” said Mamelodi Sundowns spokesperson Alex Shakoane.
