New jerseys, a new head coach and six new signings were introduced to the press on a rainy Saturday morning at the Ajax Cape Town Imkamva club house.

“At least we’ll be the best dressed team on the field,” quipped CEO Ari Efstathiou, referring to the new kit supplied by adidas and their less than stellar on-field performances during the last season.

The Home kit follows the traditional design of the Ajax Amsterdam club with small light red pinstripes in the cloth. It also features a polo collar. The 2014/15 Away jersey features a striking bold dark blue and navy split, with a triangle design on the front.

The adidas brand’s relationship with the club is nearly a decade old and “our partnership has gone from strength to strength over the years,” says adidas SA PR manager Gugu Ntuli.
The jerseys feature their Climacool moisture control technology, ventilation channels and 3SD fabrics.

During the past year 16 players left Ajax Cape Town and they have signed 7 new players, and are on the verge of signing two more. Ajax is the club with the youngest members in the PSL, with the average age of their players 22 years and 11 months, says Efstathiou. Their strong Youth Academy not only provide new players, but also trained 18 of the players currently playing for other PSL clubs.
