Kit to be shown, well “a glimpse” so the Club says, in the Warm Up show via YouTube or Facebook from 6pm Friday (tomorrow).
Yes, all Premier League teams have to have 3 shirts so we had to get it designed and produced by Umbro just in case.
Not sure about this.... surely the design of the third shirt reflects the colours of the other teams in the league you are/will be in (i.e. the Championship), not the league you might be in...
Shirt designs have to be in/ordered and already on the production line way before any promotion relegation issues are decided
Yes, I believe we've only got a 3rd kit as PL regulations require it. Therefore we had to order it before the end of last season!Not sure about this.... surely the design of the third shirt reflects the colours of the other teams in the league you are/will be in (i.e. the Championship), not the league you might be in...
I'm sure that's correct for home and away. I suspect third can go in a bit later once the club knows if there will be a requirement (and hence the later release date).
I would expect the claret, blue and salmon edging to be on the collar too.Thought this was a pretty good effort at a mock-up
Doea anyone have any experience with attaching the EFL badge to the sleeve of the shirt.
One wash and the one on my shirt is barely attached. I've tried a hot iron but doesn't seem to work in 10-20 secs and am relectant to leave it too long in case I damage the shirt.
Its all to do with branding, marketing and sales. Why sell a training top that looks like the actual kit, when people may buy more than one item.
In terms of the small gains, I understand your point, but I suspect the very marginal gain you would get on the pitch would be offset off it by selling less products. Anyway, the wearing of kit in training probably doesn't have much of an impact on where Raya positions himself for free kicks!
