The Kaizer Chiefs 2020-21 jerseys make a mean heritage statement as the club ushers in a brand-new decade. Amakhosi and Nike launched an incredible 2020/21 trend setting home and away collection that pays tribute to the club’s rich history and identity.
Chiefs’ gold and black “lions’ mane” ‚ which also has been commented on as representing “flames” in the design was inspired and reflects the Bataung clan name. The club’s blue away kit‚ launched with pictures of players in striking face paint‚ which has gotten social media buzzing.

Chiefs Marketing Director Jessica Motaung‚ who plays a key role in jersey designs‚ said: “It’s a great coincidence that we launch and announce next season’s jerseys during Heritage month in South Africa. The home jersey is a strong symbol of the lion’s mane. And this is fitting for our Chairman Kaizer Motaung who started this institution 50 years ago. We are now paving the way for the next 50 years as we move to the next generation of Chiefs lions and leaders.”
“The away jersey is a striking electric blue with gold trim around the neckline and sleeves to reflect the club’s prominence in African football. The collar of the jersey is also inspired by the lion’s mane that you find on the home jersey.” – Chiefs said in a statement
Jessica Motaung also said: “Gold and black are our traditional colours‚ while blue is the colour of the sky and sea. It is often associated with royalty‚ depth and stability. It symbolises trust‚ loyalty‚ wisdom‚ confidence‚ intelligence‚ faith and the truth. It is futuristic and represents the technological aspects of the jersey.”
Chiefs and Nike have again added a “slim-fit ladies’ cut for their female supporters. The ladies design will only be available in the home jersey” ‚ the club said.
The new home jersey incorporates a lion’s mane in the design to reflect the Bataung clan name.
