The Porcupine Warriors officially unveiled their new home kits to be used for the upcoming season on Monday but there is some similarities to their third away jersey used last season
Ghana Premier League giants Asante Kotoko officially unveiled their new home jersey produced by Errea which will be used for the 2021/22 season on Social media after hours of waiting.
Unlike last season’s home kit that had pictures of past heroes embedded in the jersey, Kotoko’s new home kit has various adinkra symbols in front.
Some of the symbols are Akoma Ntoaso which signifies understanding and agreement. Also, one can find Adinkrahene which is the chief of adinkra symbols. This means greatness, charisma and leadership.
Moreover, there is Bese Saka which means sack of cola. This symbol signifies affluence, abundance and unity.
Also, the jersey comes with two stars on the left which represent the two Caf Champions League trophies the club won in 1970 and 1983.
More importantly, one can find ‘IFFHS’s African club of the 20th century’ boldly written just under the club’s crest. This clearly shows Kotoko’s dominance in the past which did not go unnoticed. Their consistent performance in the past got them voted as the best club on the African continent by IFFHS.
In spite of these, there are some similarities between the new home jersey and the third away jersey Kotoko used last season.
The club only changed the colour which was green to red and maintained almost all the adinkra symbols. They only added the two stars and the IFFHS award they won to it.
Kotoko until recently were using jerseys from kit manufacturing companies like Mafro, Barex and Strike.
