Bristol City’s 2016/17 home kit goes on sale for the first time on Friday (April 29th) at 9am.
The Bristol Sport-produced kit was unveiled with brand-new shirt sponsor Lancer Scott last week, alongside a behind-the-scenes video from the official photoshoot.
Now, for the first time, we take a closer look at the new home kit, which is all-red – just like City sported between 1965 to 1971 and during the early 2000s.
The inclusion of hashtags #MakingBristolProud and #BristolCity has sparked much debate across the globe. By doing so, City have become the first professional football club in the UK to incorporate the modern social media tags on to the front of their shirt.
The monochrome coat of arms fits with the new all-red look, and at the front tail of the shirt the club’s nickname ‘The Robins’ is embroidered.
On the rear of the shirt, Ashton Gate’s new logo is incorporated to mark the grand opening of the new-look 27,000 stadium. Local company Poplar Insulation remain back of shirt sponsors.
Adult shirt prices remain £45, with shorts priced £25 and socks £10. Junior shirts cost £30, with shorts £20 and socks £8.
New discounts will not be in place until August, but 2015/16 discounts will be available.
Fans unable to visit Ashton Gate will be able to purchase online from 9am on Friday, but please note discounts are not currently available via this method.
