Fashionable Orlando Pirates landing
The Orlando Pirates landed in Nigeria for the CAF Confederations Cup final to much fanfare as they made their debut in stunning new leopard print kit.
The Pirates are set to take on Moroccan side RS Berkane at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium on Friday night.
The Soweto Giants flew to Uyo town, however, their outfit really caught the eye as it was the first time the team had been seen wearing this kit – and to say it looks elegant would be an understatement!

Over the past few seasons, football apparel has improved dramatically, with some brands putting more effort into sportswear design.
We’ve seen vintage kits get re-stylized and we’ve also seen brands like adidas and Nike infuse streetwear elements into their new sportswear collections.
The Bucs benefited from this trend and their merchandising seemed more inspiring than ever.
Dripping Bucs style
After seeing the lifestyle collections that adidas Originals have launched for clubs like Arsenal and Real Madrid, it’s an exciting time for clubs backed by the German brand.
The Pirates donned a super stylish three-piece leopard outfit consisting of an animal print track top, filler TRFL t-shirt and matching track pants.
The aesthetic outfit is most likely inspired by the team’s exploits on the continent this season.
