The booty of the Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs before the Soweto Derby


Kaizer Chiefs may have secured boastful rights with their Soweto Derby win over Orlando Pirates on Sunday, but who did better with their pre-game swag?

The derby is one of the biggest events on the domestic football calendar and remains one of the most watched sporting events in the country despite the continued absence of fans due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

It is only fair that the teams dress up for the big occasion where the players stepped out in formal attire for a pre-game field inspection.

Suits are not common in this day and age, but looking chic remains a priority for both clubs. But what do they look like behind closed doors?

Amakhosi walked out in neat black and gold Nike tracksuits with golf shirts underneath, Nike sneakers and accessories with their official club masks and bucket hats.

With their official club masks, the Buccaneers donned dark blue jeans, adidas sneakers and contrasting adidas smart shirts.

Did you know?

Just like their 2020-21 match kit, Pirates’ pre-game kits pay homage to retro football shirts from the 1990s.

Your thoughts please?

Which pre-game Soweto derby drip would you handle?
