2021/22 Kit Launched

Umbro South Africa and the Botswana Football Association are pleased to present the 21/22 home, away and alternate kits of the Botswana national teams. Unlike previous seasons, all three jersey designs were inspired by fan submissions and incorporate various elements of Botswanan iconography.

The Home jersey features black stripes against a background of traditional sky blue, capped with white sleeves – a visual reimagining of the Botswana flag.

The Away kit is strikingly simple in its minimalism, teaming black horizontal stripes with a crisp white base.
Echoing the striped silhouettes of the home and away kits, the Alternate jersey features a black-on-black stripe building into a watermarked zebra created by the negative space; a subtle nod to Botswana’s national animal and the team’s namesake.

All jerseys are made from a lightweight, breathable performance fabric and will be worn by the Botswana men’s national team in their AFCON qualifying fixture against Zimbabwe on Thursday, 25 March. Replica jerseys will be available through the football association and its affiliated retailers in late April.
