It’s the end of an era and the rekindling of an old one as Kappa come in for Nike to reveal the new Kaizer Chiefs home and away kits for 23/24, with the club likely hoping that the same success follows the last period of partnership with the Italian brand.

Nike have been producing Kaizer Chiefs kits for over 20 years, but that relationship has finally come to an end, with Kappa returning to take the reigns. Kaizer Chiefs and Kappa, conquered all before them when they first partnered up in 1989, with Amakhosi winning a sensational quadruple of titles in the first year of their Kappa sponsorship, and 12 trophies in total in what was a dominant era. Now the South African club will be hoping for a return of that success, with the reveal of their new home and away kits fro 23/24.

The home jersey is predominantly gold, symbolising Amakhosi's commitment to success and excellence, with bold black inflections accentuating the sleek design, which will be complemented by either black or gold shorts on the pitch. The home kit pays tribute to Kaizer Chiefs' prestigious legacy, instilling both players and supporters, who are always behind the team, with a sense of pride.

Joining that home kit, Kappa have also introduced a striking green and gold away kit for the upcoming season. Inspired by the natural beauty of South Africa, the green represents the lush landscapes of the nation. It also symbolises the growth and the nurturing of a new relationship, while the gold trim symbolises victory and the accomplishment of the Club over the past 53 years.

"After almost 30 years of being apart from each other, we are once again truly delighted to be associated with Kaizer Chiefs; an iconic football Club with a legendary status in Africa," comments Ricky Joseph, Director and Head of Kappa South Africa. The launch of these distinctive jerseys marks an exciting new chapter for Kaizer Chiefs and Kappa. Our renewed collaboration aims to push the boundaries of design and performance, creating jerseys that truly integrate the Club's heritage and aspirations with Kappa’s innovation and style when it comes to sports and leisure wear.

While the home kit might be a little too close to Charlie Brown for our liking, the accompanying tracksuit is right on the money, and we can’t wait to see what this partnership has in store down the line…
