Premier League Champions, Leicester City, Unveil 2016/17 Home Kit
The City of Leicester turned blue in support of their team, headlines were made and the eyes of the footballing world turned to the new Barclays Premier League Champions, Leicester City Football Club.
Now the Foxes and official kit supplier PUMA are pleased to unveil the 2016/17 home kit the team will compete in as they look to defend their Premier League title.
For the first time in the Club’s history the Leicester City home shirt will sport the iconic gold Premier League embellishment, reserved for the champions and worn with pride by the team each time they take to the pitch.
The sleek contemporary style brings a bold and geometric design to the body and sleeves to create an eye-catching statement, while boasting a traditional yet stylised collar.
The textured form stripe and contrasting piping featured on the shirt and shorts gives a subtle flash of gold to showcase Leicester’s champion status.
Leicester City captain Wes Morgan said of the new kit: “Yet again it’s a fantastic kit. They’ve used great colours, the material is fantastic and it really breathes, which is what you need when you’re out there on the pitch. I like the trim and the little subtle touches – it all adds to a fantastic shirt.
"It’s always great to see the fans wearing Leicester shirts. When you’re on the pitch and you look in the stands you see a big wave of blue shirts. It gives us a great feeling and it’s like having a 12th man."
The 2016/17 campaign draws on the Foxes’ fearless attitude which has delivered great success for the Club over the past two seasons.
Now is the time for Leicester City to show the world the fearless philosophy the players, staff and fans live by.
From Football League Championship title winners and promotion to the Premier League, to the ‘greatest escape’ during the 2014/15 season, through to winning the biggest league in world football this week. We were fearless then, fearless now and will forever be fearless.
As Leicester City players express in an emotive video, as part of the official kit launch:
No matter the occasion,
The stage or fanfare
We do not falter.
As top dogs.
Together we stand.
To eye this next horizon
This new world, is our new stage.
From the terrace.
To the pitch.
To the boardroom.
We play our part.
Because when all is said and all is done
And history hangs in the balance
We remain #ForeverFearless
Paul Spencer, General Manager PUMA UKIB said: "We’re delighted to continue our strong partnership with the English Premier League champions in launching the Leicester City FC PUMA home kit for the 2016-17 season.
“As well as writing one of the greatest stories in the history of sport, Leicester City are a fantastic football club with rich heritage and incredible fans. It’s a privilege to continue to work with the Club in our role as official kit supplier. We look forward to many more fearless moments next season.”
