Sheffield Wednesday Reveal New Club Crest

Football kit news from the Championship this morning as Sheffield Wednesday have revealed a new club crest that will appear on their 2016-17 kits.

  

Picked by the Owls chairman Dejphon Chansiri as he celebrates his first full calendar year at Hillsborough, the new retro looking Sheffield Wednesday crest represents the club’s badge from 1956, which was produced but never worn on a first team football kits.

Mr Chansiri told the club’s official website, “The year of 2016 marks my first full year as chairman of our great club and to commemorate this landmark, I am extremely proud to unveil the new crest that will herald a new beginning for Sheffield Wednesday. 

“Since taking over the club, I have enjoyed many conversations on the crest with supporters across all age groups and it soon became clear that a new crest would be better received were it in keeping with our heritage. 

“Having studied at length the rich traditions of the club, the crest that stood out to me in every way was the first official design of the 1950s and I am fascinated by the fact it was never actually used on the team’s shirts. 

“Therefore this vision was always in the forefront of my thoughts during the long, thorough and diligent design process. 

“Many hours, days and weeks were devoted to this project and I trust that our supporters will be as excited at the end result as I am. 

“I look forward with great anticipation to the new crest becoming synonymous with my chairmanship of Sheffield Wednesday.”
