Pre-Derby drip: Chiefs or Pirates?

The Locker Room

Kaizer Chiefs may have secured the bragging rights with their Soweto Derby victory over Orlando Pirates on Sunday, but who did it better with their pre-game swag?

The Derby is one of the biggest events on the domestic football calendar and, despite the supporters' continued absence over the Covid-19 pandemic, it remains one of the most-watched sporting events in the country.

It is only fair then that teams dress up for the big occasion, which previously saw players step out for the pre-game pitch inspection in formal attire.

In today's times suits are not customary but looking smart remains a priority for both clubs. But what do they look like behind closed doors?

Did you know?

Just like their 2020/21 playing kit, Pirates' pre-match shirts pays homage to retro football shirts from the 1990s.
