The new design is the second under City's multi-year partnership with the global sportslifestyle brand and will be worn by the first team for the first time on Saturday morning, as the squad meet supporters buying the shirt at King Power Stadium.
Featuring the Foxes’ familiar ‘reflex blue’, the new shirt includes PUMA’s ‘King neckline’ with blue and gold twin taping, gold underarm panels and gold trim on the sleeves.
The world famous PUMA ‘cat’ features on the right breast, while the Leicester City Football Club crest takes its familiar position on the left, also trimmed with gold, above the now familiar branding of the Club’s shirt sponsor and stadium naming rights partner King Power.
The classic white shorts feature twin contrast leg taping to left leg, matching shirt collar detail, while the blue socks again feature the PUMA brand prominently and show a clean white strap on the fold.

To view the entire range of official Leicester City merchandise, including the 2013/14 PUMA home kits and trainingwear, visit the City Fanstore in person or visit www.lcfcdirect.com.
Those supporters among the first to purchase the new kit will be able to get it signed by members of the first team squad at an exclusive signing event at King Power Stadium.
Members of the first team squad will be in the new kit and on-hand from 10am until midday to sign shirts purchased earlier in the morning!
The exclusive signing event is open to supporters who purchase the new home shirt from the City Fanstore on Saturday. Due to the players’ busy training schedule, the signing session will run for two hours only from 10am and will finish at the stroke of midday.
Supporters wishing to get their new 2013/14 home shirts signed by the players are urged to make their purchase from the City Fanstore as early as possible to enable them to join the queue for signing. The doors to the signing event will open at 10am and signing will work on a first-come, first-served basis until the players leave at midday. The Club apologises in advance if some supporters don’t get their shirts signed by the time the players have to leave at midday.
In order to get as many shirts signed as possible, only purchases of the new kit made on the morning of the launch event will be signed and no posed photographs with the players will be possible.
Can’t get to the City Fanstore on Saturday?
Don’t worry – the new kit will be available to purchase online at www.lcfcdirect.com at 8am.
