Cats to wear blue on the road next season.

Black Cats star Connor Wickham modelled the brand new 2014-15 adidas away kit during a recent photo-call.

The new ‘sharp blue’ kit with dark grey pinstripes will be worn by SAFC on the road during the forthcoming Barclays Premier League campaign.

Speaking about the change strip, Wickham told “It’s a really striking kit. I love the bold, bright colour, the design is different to previous kits and I’m sure our fans will like it.”

The new away kit will be officially released on June 27, 2014 and fans can place their orders now for launch day delivery, online at or from official SAFC stores, located at the Stadium of Light, within Debenhams, Sunderland or at The Galleries, Washington. Free standard UK delivery is available on all orders over £50.

‘Click and collect’ is also available free of charge, whereby fans can order their shirt to be delivered to the Stadium of Light store or The Galleries, Washington to collect in person on launch day. UK pre-orders (non-personalised) must be placed by midday (BST) June 23 for launch day delivery on June 27 (including click & collect).
