Spanish Third Division Club Unveils Broccoli Themed Kit
Whilst most clubs have already unveiled their new kits for the 2013/14 season, Spanish third division club La Hoya Lorca have just unveiled their new home and away shirts for the current football season.
La Hoya Lorca is a Spanish club based in Lorca, Murcia. The club was founded in 2003 and it currently plays in the Spanish Segunda B (third division).
The club launched its new kits, presenting a striped blue and white shirt and a broccoli themed away kit. The reason behind the ‘green’ away kit is due to the club paying tribute to the local region of Murcia, known as the vegetable garden of Spain – apparently broccoli is abundant in the region and is a very successful export.
‘El Brócoli Mecánico’
This will be the club’s second season in a broccoli themed away kit, as they first wore a similar themed shirt last season, where they went on to win the Tercera Division and win promotion to the Segunda B division, earning the nickname El Brócoli Mecánico (Clockwork Broccoli).
