The Puma shop in Ghana have launched the new Black Stars kits with excitement fast gaining momentum ahead of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Ex Ghana players; Frimpong Manso, Emmanuel Ampiah, Isaac Kwakye and Godwin Ablodey modelled the new home kits at the launch held at the Puma Shop at the Accra Mall on Saturday morning.

The event was witnessed by Anthony Baffoe, Stephen Appiah and Tony Yeboah with Black Stars defender Samuel Inkoom also in the wings amongst the special invited guests.

The new kit which has been heralded by many since its first appearance during the Ghana’s international friendly defeat to Montenegro in March is expected to give the Black Stars the best of luck as they make their third successive appearance at the World Cup finals in June.

    This jersey is a bit Ghanaian but we should do some thing more Ghanain.Like designed with only Kente colors with a bold black star at the back.White is not find part of our color so it shudnt dominate.

    They should use yellow/gold instead of white that shows the true colour of ghana

    These are ugly kits. They should have invited the public to come up with designs and then choose the one with the most classy one. Not even one design institution was commissioned.

    puma is garbage... i don't mind the colors. the overall design and the material quality of their kits are unbelievably bad. many question nike for their lack of "creativity" but nike is my favorite brand. when it comes to jerseys, elegance is in the simplicity and quality of the material. and why d'afuq don't we have an "all black" 3rd kit??? i hate addidas and their cookie cutter 3 strips band, but in comparison to puma, i would welcome them in a heartbeat. lol........GFA, puma sucks....

    You seem to have problem with all of them, even your so called favourite Nike. what do you think they should do to improve the elegance and how much quality do you think should be added?

    masa, how can u imply that i have a problem with nike even though they r my favorite? did u read what i wrote? i will restate what i said again to answer your questions. they could improve the elegance by doing less with more. ....i.e "simplicity". the notion of representing all the colors of a country's flag on a jersey shows the lack of creativity; for it is the norm or conventional thought. the best way is to use 1 main color while implementing the other colors as minute details that renders the kit as a cohesive unit and and a representation rather than just a a copy and paste of colors. bear in mind that puma attempted to do this with the world cup kits, and i applaud them for there effort, but they failed in the collar and in the quality of the kit. in terms of quality, please take a look at zoomed in images of nike kits and compare the fabrics with the kappa's, pumas, etc ...u will understand... for me, nike is on top, umbro(owned by nike) is next, and then addidas. ... all the rest are crap. lol

    My view is that I want to see black stars wear a jersy that will represent the national colours of our belove country Which is Red Yellow Green with our Black star on the chest. White is not part of our national colours .
