Shirts: February 11, 2022
Patterns of Play design new team kit for Amasokolara FC, a grassroots football team from the township of Alexandra in Johannesburg, South Africa.
This team kit is part of 'The Balls Project' and follows on from PoP's sold out release of Ball #1 by Japanese artist Takeru Amano. The money from the profits of which went towards producing this unique kit for the team.
Patterns of Play worked closely with Takeru Amano to design the kit, taking inspiration from his famous graffiti styled artwork.
Takeru created custom sprayed pieces for us in his Tokyo studio, featuring a reimagined interpretation of the team crest and our POP logo. He also sprayed us a set of individual squad numbers which will feature on the reverse of the shirts for the team kit.
A full set of team kit will be flown out to Amasokolara FC in the coming weeks and in addition PoP also made a limited edition collectors shirt available to buy as well.
It’s available online now from our website (£60 + shipping) and again PoP will be putting a chunk of the profits back towards supporting the team. They’re calling this the second half.
You can pre-order the shirt now, but it closes 10pm GMT Sunday February 13th. With shirts being shipped out early April.
