New home kit unveiled

by Kate Smith

2014-15 home kit available to pre-order.

SAFC has unveiled its new home kit for the 2014-15 Barclays Premier League season, which is set to launch on Friday 25 July, 2014.

The traditional red and white striped shirt, manufactured by adidas and sporting the name of principal club partner Bidvest, is accented with black panels and a striking gold trim. The close fitting design features adidas’ patented Climacool fabric and is complimented by the kit partners’ iconic three white stripes logo.  

The shorts are traditional black, set off by a red trim and adidas detailing and the socks are black with a red trim.

The kit was modelled in a recent photo-shoot by Black Cats stars John O’Shea and Steven Fletcher, whilst goalkeeper Vito Mannone donned a new-look goalkeeper shirt which will also be available in club stores.

Speaking about the home strip, John said: “Wherever you go in the city you see the red and white stripes, Its evident for all to see just how proud the fans are of their iconic kit and we as players share in that pride every time we pull on the shirt.”

Sunderland’s stylish new look is sure to be popular and fans can order their kits in advance for delivery on launch day, online at www.safcstore.com. Free standard UK delivery is available on all orders over £55.

‘Click and collect’ is also available free of charge, whereby fans can order their shirt in advance to be delivered to the Stadium of Light store or The Galleries, Washington, to collect in person on launch day.  This must be ordered online at safcstore.com

The pre-order service is available until midday 22 July only.

Sunderland AFC will kick off the 2014-15 season with new home and away adidas kits. A third strip has also been produced for use by the first team in the event of any colour clash. This kit will not be sold in the club’s retail outlets however.
