Puma South Africa revealed a new Ghana kit on Monday, with various South African media outlets carrying a press release introducing the new shirt.

Twitter was a abuzz as Black Stars fans and commentators caught a first glimpse of the new strip, which represents a startling departure for the West African giants.

Notably, there is significantly more black than the shirts have traditionally featured, with black sleeves and shoulders set off by a yellow hooped collar.

According to the press release—as per Kick Off—Ghana will wear the new ‘technological design’ in an as yet unspecified fixture this year, although there are conflicting reports as to whether the shirt presented in the photos is a definitive design or a trial template from Puma.

As well as the Black Stars, Puma have also unveiled new designs for both Cameroon and the Cote d’Ivoire, with the Indomitable Lions debuting their latest kit against France on Monday evening, and the Ivorians sporting theirs against Gabon on Saturday.
