Welsh club gets new kits for Premiership campaign
Swansea City, the lone representative from Wales in the English Premier League, has a new pair of kits from adidas which features simplicity for the home and a halved shirt for the away. But even more importantly, the shirt has a very eye-catching sponsor. The South Wales-based club are now in their fourth year in the English top flight, as Swansea are the first Welsh club to compete in the Premier League.
The home kit is a very simple white kit with black details. The jersey has a classic v-neck collar, and black adidas triple stripes on the sleeves that extend from the collar to the shoulders. The shorts also has black stripes, and come from the waistband down to near the hem, where a black trim can be seen. The socks come in white with the black triple stripes at the top, completing a very uniform look.
The away kit is more daring in appearance, and is actually in the same template as the home. The shirt has a black and red halved look, with black also occupying the sleeves and backside. The v-neck is dual-toned, with a black and red stripe pattern. The same pattern is on the shoulders below the red sleeve stripes, and on the sleeve cuffs. A thick white arched stripe can be seen at the top of the back, near the neck area. The shorts and socks are both red with black trim, with the socks having a pinhoop design at the base.
The sponsor the club has currently is Chinese-based online investment firm Golden Global Investments, otherwise known as GWFX. A major change from its appearance on last year’s strips, this newest take on the sponsor has a large golden diamond shape plastered on the shirts. GWFX has been the main sponsor of the Swans since last year.
After a 2013-14 season in which Swansea began continuing their emergence on the English football scene with a Europa League, the club suffered a setback. The club would bow out in the Europa League by Serie A power Napoli in the Round of 32, and finished in 12th on the Premier League standings with an even 0 goal difference. Swansea City, Wales’ only club in the land of the English giants, will look to reach the top once more. Like these kits? Got something to say about that sponsor?
