AJAX Cape Town is motivated ahead of their 2011/12 season’s opening this Friday after they club and its technical sponsor, adidas launched its new home and away kit.
The Ekamva side kick-start their new season when they host SuperSport United in the quarterfinal match of the MTN 8 at the Cape Town Stadium at 8pm.
The home jersey resembles last season’s jersey with the main difference being the return of the collar.
“The Ajax Cape Town jersey is a continuation of the proud tradition at Ajax Amsterdam which has seen us produce a unique, world class home jersey every season without deviating from the traditions of the club. However on the away jersey, we went for a younger bolder look, using tonal striping and Columbia Blue and Dark Navy,” says Zobuzwe Ngobese, the public relations manager at adidas South Africa.
Both jerseys feature climacool technology – a combination of performance fabrics, open mesh and ventilation channels which keep cool air flowing in and heat and sweat flowing out. Climacool works by considering how and where the body produces heat and sweat, and focus’s specific fabric and garment features in those zones. The effect is that athletes stay dry, comfortable and perform at their peak in even the most heated competitions.
George Comitis the Ajax Cape Town CEO said, “We are proud and honoured and to be associated with adidas. They are a premium sports brand and as a football club we always strive to be the best therefore the association with adidas enables Ajax Cape Town to look the part. The kit for the new season is immaculate and when we go onto the field, from our PSL team down to our juniors, the community scheme coaches as well as all our staff, we will be proud to wear the new adidas kit which is world class”.
