The Black Stars’ new jersey is quite different from previous versions
By: Sammie Frimpong
Ghana outdoored its new outfit on Saturday in the senior national team’s final Afcon 2017 qualifier versus Rwanda in Accra and, in a number of ways, it is unlike any the Black Stars have ever worn. Consider a few:
It’s been a while since the Stars last wore anything but round-collared shirts, making the new offering’s polo-style neck a welcome change. Nice.
Really, what’s a Ghana strip without at least a star, given the team’s nickname? And while Puma has previously kept the symbol as a barely perceptible watermark, the latest version has one boldly stuck on the chest — and quite a few across the shirt’s upper back.
For those who just cannot get used to seeing Ghana in plain, boring white, well, here’s something different — something more colorful, in fact. There’s the usual white, yes, but also some green, lots of black, and bits of yellow and red. Not bad, eh?
LIGHTER, FITTER, HEALTHIER
Like most other jerseys these days, Ghana’s does more than just clothe the lads. The evoKNIT technology used in its design provides lightweight, form-fitting comfort as well as thermoregulation and performance enhancement properties.
