Puma & Leicester Reveal New Alternative Away Kit For 2016/2017 Season
“We Are Champions League”
PUMA today revealed the new Leicester City alternative away kit for the upcoming 2016/2017 season. The kit is set to be worn in their first ever UEFA Champions League campaign and throughout their upcoming Premier League title defence.
The blue pinstripe design of this season’s alternative away kit has been inspired from the club’s iconic 1983/84 shirt. Classic design meets modern technology with the shirt featuring high quality lightweight polyester material enabling a moisture wicking finish, designed to quickly draw sweat away from the body, keeping you drier and cooler for longer. The shirt also features a drop tail hem for added coverage with the traditional Leicester City logo applied alongside the embroidered PUMA cat on the front.
The shirt itself features a two piece rib collar and boasts a clean look with a subtle flash of colour. With underarm paneling as well as the pinstripe design, the kit also features a textured form stripe design across both the shirt and shorts.
Marc Albrighton said: “The white kit is beautiful, it’s got the pinstripes which is a bit different to what we’ve had in previous years and I think the extra little touches make it look pretty special, we’re looking forward to wearing it. As well as playing the part you’ve got to look the part, so I think PUMA have done a good job.”
Paul Spencer, General Manager PUMA UKIB said; “We’re delighted to launch the PUMA Leicester City alternative away kit for this season’s campaign. The pinstripe features of this year’s shirt is a subtle nod to the retro designs of the early eighties and we’re looking forward to seeing the boys back in action in the new shirts and representing not only Leicester but the country this season.”
The new official 2016/2017 alternative away kit will be available from the LCFC store, 6th July and online from the 5th August. RRP £50.00 Adult, £35 Kids.
