This is the new Bafana kit 2012, the new South African soccer jersey for the 2012/13 season unveiled by Puma. Puma unveiled the new Bafana kit 2012 on November 7, 2011 at the Design Museum in London at the Interpretations of Africa: Football, Art and Design exhibition.
The new Bafana kit 2012/2013 comes just months after Puma had released their first soccer jersey for the South African national team. That soccer kit, a generic replica of the Spurs shirt, was widely criticised and Puma promised to unveil a new kit for the 2012 African Cup of Nations. Unfortunately for Puma, Bafana failed to qualify for CAN 2012.
This new South Africa jersey 12/13 uses Bafana’s traditional colours and also has the Puma logo in green along with a special rainbow graphic.
Here is a photo of Bafana captain Steven Pienaar modelling the new Bafana 12/13 strip.
The new Bafana kit 2012/13 has been made by South African artists Hasan and Husain Essop.
