Bafana Jersey – Iron on Protea Badge Avialable Now

Posted by KAY-EL On April - 1 - 2010

Safa have just announced that an Iron on Protea badge will be available for the Bafana Bafana replica jerseys for R20.

OK the whole Bafana Bafana jersey controversy has been bubbling over since the day that  Adidas revealed the new 2010 Bafana Kit. We have ended up with three different versions of the jersey, all selling for different amounts.

Iron on Protea Badges

According to the Safa website, Design-a-shirt will sell the Protea badges to all retailers which are selling the genuine Bafana replica jersey. The consumer then has the option of having the Protea badge professionally applied at retail or they can apply it themselves. The packaging of the Protea badge will have specific application instructions and disclaimers against incorrect usage. Design-a-shirt has a list of outlets where the Protea badge can be applied professionally using the correct process.

The iron on embroidered badge was put forward as the best solution to resolve the Protea issue, SAFA believes the restoration of the Protea emblem on the replica jersey will go a long way in consolidating support for the national team.

2010_bafana_bafana_jerseys“We believe all South Africans would want to wear their jerseys with pride during the 2010 FIFA World Cup. The Bafana replica jersey is the one thing that distinguishes us from the rest of the world and it is therefore important that our identity is authentic,” says Leslie Sedibe, Chief Executive of SAFA.

National Emblem

Now this may be a stupid question, but as the Protea is our national emblem, why were the shirts made without the Protea badge in the first place? With only the Adidas logo and the Bafana Bafana Logo.
