Football kit news from Sky Bet League One as last night the new Hummel 2019-20 Coventry City 2 Tone third kit was officially unveiled. The Coventry City third kit 2019-20 is inspired by 2 Tone music which originated in Coventry which sees ska and reggae mixed with elements of punk rock and new wave music. Bands such as The Specials, The Selector, Madness, The Beat and Bad Manners are well know in the 2 Tone music scene. At a time when racism was high in Britain many 2 Tone bands featured black, white and multiracial members. To mark the 40th anniversary of 2 Tone Coventry City have released this black and white commemorative third kit. The top half of the jersey is white whilst the bottom half is black. A checkerboard runs horizontally through the centre of the football shirt. On the top of the back is an image of the ‘Nutty Dancer’ well know in 2 Tone and used by Madness on the cover of their first album. A monotone Coventry City crest is placed on the left breast whilst a black Hummel logo is placed on the right breast. Black Hummel chevrons are placed on the top of the sleeves. Inside the neckline is black ’40 Years of 2 Tone’ lettering. Beneath that inside the shirt is the Kick It Out logo in recognition of the racial harmony 2 Tone played in the community. A donation will be made to the charity for every third shirt sold. Black shorts with white socks complete the 2 Tone inspired Coventry City third kit 2019-20. Coventry will debut the new third kit in front of the Sky Sports cameras when they face Tranmere Rovers on Sunday.
