Sundowns unveil third kit

Mamelodi Sundowns third kit

Mamelodi Sundowns and Puma have released the alternative kit which the CAF Champions League winners will don for the 2017-18 campaign.

The Chloorkop-based outfit recently unveiled their new home and away kits, with the former being showcased in their 1-1 draw against AS Vita in the Champions League.

Together with their technical sponsor PUMA, Masandawana have released their third kit which symbolises a new era in South African football, according to Sundowns’ Communications Manager.

“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.

“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,” Thulani Thuswa said on the club’s website

PUMA’s Marketing Manager Brett Bellinger revealed exactly how the kit will help Sundowns in their bid to retain their African title.

“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,” he concluded.

The Brazilians will don their third kit for the first time during the MTN8 Tournament in August this year against Maritzburg United.
