Orlando Pirates’ supporters have been given a taste of what they can expect as the club officially unveiled the new kit.

The kit was leaked a few weeks back, and the Bucs have now confirmed this will be their look for the new campaign.

With the Buccaneers confirming the news, Sports Brief looks at some of the club’s best kits over the years.

Orlando Pirates’ 5 best kits


It’s one of the classics.

The 2008/09 kit may look simple, but Pirates struck fear into the hearts of their opponents when wearing it.

The kit also conjures up images of Steve Lekolea running at defences.

While Pirates are often associated with black and white, they introduced a red kit for their away jersey in 2011/12.

The season proved to be successful for the side as they secured their second treble in a row.

In the 2017/18 season, Pirates went back to a simpler look.

The white away, in particular, grabbed attention for its sleek design, and the club badge was placed in the middle as opposed to other seasons.

Two seasons back, Addidas and Pirates brought out a kit that had many talking.

While the home kit was a simpler black with red trim, the away kit was white with black and red accents and a graphic print on the background.

Pirates went back to the graphics in a big way with their kit last season.

The home and away kit featured a skull and crossbones, and while fans were unsure at first, it grew on them as the season progressed.

Clubs with highest earnings from kit sales

A popular kit can be a great revenue earner for professional football clubs.

Sports Brief recently looked at clubs with the most kit revenue from 2023.

It’s no surprise to see two of Spain’s most popular teams topping that list.
