New Southampton Shirt Release Details
Southampton have today released further information regarding their new kit. Details have revealed that the Saints would be unveiling a new home and away kit, 2 goalkeeper kits together with an extensive range of training and bench wear.
Their new home would be launched and available for pre-order on May 14th, and one can then buy the new kit from the club stores on Friday 13 June.
The kit will be designed by Umbro, who have signed a five-year deal with Southampton. The club have made a change to the kit cycle and all future kits will only be used for one season.
Leighton Mitchell, Head of Retail said:
“We have made the decision to move to a one year kit cycle for a number of reasons. Firstly the 08/09 season is the last in the current shirt Sponsorship agreement with Flybe and at this point in time we cannot confirm who the shirt sponsors will be for the 09/10 season.”
“Secondly, a one year cycle brings the club in line with other Umbro contracted clubs and many Premier and Football League clubs. A one year kit cycle will also help provide vital extra revenue to the Club.”
