This morning the new Stoke City 2016-17 Macron kits have been officially revealed by the English Premier League club.
The Stoke City 2016-17 home shirt is the first made by the Italian brand Macron after it was announced they had replaced Adidas as the clubs kit supplier. The new Stoke home jersey is made up of the traditional red and white stripes whilst the collar and cuffs are white.
Blue Macron lettering is placed on the right breast whilst the clubs official shirt sponsor ‘Bet365’, appears in the middle of the football shirt coloured white.
When the collar is flipped up there are red and white lines underneath. Blue ‘The Potters’ lettering is placed just under the back of the collar.
Some fans have questioned the white panel on the back of the new Stoke City home shirt but the club have had this to say on their official website. ‘As the Premier League are looking to introduce a rule to enforce squad number visibility to complement UEFA’s rules for clubs playing in European competition, we have incorporated a white panel on the reverse of the shirt. However, we have retained our red and white stripe DNA on part of the back and incorporated red letters and numbers to complement the shirt.
White shorts and socks will compliment the new Stoke City home shirt.
The Potters will wear the new strip when they face West Ham at the Britannia Stadium on May 15th.
The jersey has a blue base colour and features an embossed ‘S’ which appeared on the first ever Stoke City kit back in 1882. The collar and cuffs are coloured white as is the Macron lettering on the right breast whilst a monochrome Stoke City crest is placed on the left. Official shirt sponsor Bet365 have their name in the middle of the football shirt coloured white.
Blue shorts and socks complete the Stoke City 2016-17 away kit made by Macron.
