The Buccaneers' brand activation manager, Tokoloho Moeketsi, released a statement via the club's official website, in which the new kit designs are showcased.

According to Pirates, the home kit "brings a sophisticated feel to a jersey steeped in deep-rooted culture and value' while the away jersey is a 'striking two-toned red stripe pattern that reflects the Club's ongoing quest to restore pride to the famous badge.

"We are more than just a club, and our kit is more than just something we wear when we play. It's an integral part of who we are as team, it's what we identify with as a family, and it's the rallying call that our players will heed when they take to the field on match day," Moeketsi added on the club's official website.

"This is our club. This is who we fight for, and the 2018/19 jersey is the war-paint on our skins that symbolizes our preparedness for the season's battle to come."
