As the sun set on Chloorkop Stadium, PUMA unveiled STEP OUT, a new third kit for Mamelodi Sundowns the reigning Champions of Africa.
Cutting through the darkness the striking STEP OUT kit looks fearsome. It’s technically advanced design with unique detailing inspired by The Brazilians home ground Chloorkop, will enable the team to take their home pride with them as they STEP OUT into the territories of their rivals.
“We want the STEP OUT kit to represent a very special period in the history of the Club. This kit is bold, unique and is something new in the South African football scene,” said Thulani Thuswa, Mamelodi Sundowns Communications Manager.
“The STEP OUT kit will only be used for cup matches. Resembling super stealth, we will slowly change the colour of fear for our opponents”, said Thuswa. The Brazilians will debut their third kit during the MTN8 Tournament in August this year.
Speaking about Mamelodi Sundowns’ presence on the field PUMA Marketing Manager Brett Bellinger said, “When you STEP OUT to face your great rivals on their turf you have to turn up the intimidation factor, occupy the stadium and make it yours.”
“Sundowns are the Kings of Africa so when they STEP OUT in this kit, they will have the confidence to believe this is not an away ground, this is our ground. Then STEP OUT and PLAY LOUD”, said Bellinger.
The launch of the STEP OUT kit follows PUMA unveiling The Brazilians 2017/18 Home & Away shirts earlier this month. The STEP OUT kit will be available as of 13 July from PUMA stores, Totalsports, The Cross Trainer, Studio 88, Takealot and selected retailers nationwide retailing for R799.
