SA’s Bafana Bafana Jerseys Sell Out Ahead of Super Eagles Clash (PICS)

Following South Africa’s national men’s football team, Bafana Bafana, securing a victory against World Cup semi-finalists Morocco in the African Cup of Nations, the official white supporters’ replica jersey has completely sold out. The remarkable performance, marked by goals from Evidence Makgopa and Teboho Mokoena, which propelled Bafana into the Afcon quarterfinals, has ignited a surge of support across the country.

Although exact sales figures were not disclosed, Le Coq Sportif marketing manager Courtney Williams confirmed the sell-out to TimesLIVE, attributing it to the overwhelming support and enthusiasm generated by the team’s success. Williams expressed pride in the national team and highlighted the resilience demonstrated by Bafana Bafana, despite recent setbacks.

The popularity of the jerseys underscores a sense of national unity and hope, particularly as South Africa aims to clinch the CAF Cup, last achieved in 1996. The current team’s dedication and performance evoke memories of the iconic 1996 squad, instilling excitement and optimism among fans nationwide.

Le Coq Sportif introduced an all-white kit as an alternative jersey for South Africa, departing from the traditional green and gold stripes. This symbolic change reflects the team’s quest for inspiration and success in the upcoming tournament hosted by Ivory Coast, defying earlier skepticism about their chances.
