Cardoso: New kit can inspire success

Amakhosi, together with their sponsors Nike, launched their home and away kits on Monday, just a few weeks before the new campaign gets underway.

According to a statement sent out by Chiefs, the new home kit features a modern design with the iconic gold shirt complemented by bold diagonal black stripes running across the torso – the stripes representing traditional spears rising together to create a sense of motion and unity on the field.

“The home kit reminds me of the stripes when the team won the league in 2014/15. Obviously this one the stripes are going from the bottom up now. It goes into a spear type of thing,” Cardoso says.

“It’s somewhat different. Obviously black and gold are our colours. They have been with us for as many years as I come remember, so it’s exciting.”

The colour purple dominates the away kit, something which surprised both supporters and players. 

“The away kit is very different. I don’t think many people expected it to be purple. It’s something we will have to grow into, but I think it’s a new venture for us. It’s a new season, so maybe the purple will change us a bit. Obviously we won’t play with it as often as the home kit, but hopefully it can bring us more trophies.”
