Cheetahs launch new kit

The new Cheetahs Vodacom Super Rugby home jersey will be predominantly orange, with a turquoise away jersey.

Puma has decided to focus on the team’s two distinct colours – orange and ‘pou blou’ turquoise (Griquas' colours), rounded off with purple numbers and trimmings (Griffons' colours) – but will shift away from the traditional white home jersey for the new Super Rugby season.

'The latest Puma kit for the Cheetahs is something of a landmark,' says Puma South Africa’s marketing director Brett Bellinger.

'Traditionally the home kit has been marked by a largely white-based treatment with the away kit being orange. Puma and the management at the Cheetahs decided that we should start to introduce orange as the base colour for the home kits and we have done so in a gradual manner – this being represented by the fading from white to orange in the home kit.'

The new Cheetahs home jersey will be in-store from 4 December and the away jersey from 10 December – both will retail for R699.
