Scottish champions Celtic FC and New Balance have unveiled their 2016/17 away uniform as part of their ‘Like No Other’ promotion featuring a design inspired by their glorious heritage and proud fans.
The jersey stands-out thanks to a classy combination of black and gold trimming. An unique collar design is reinforced by an horizontal detail which runs up the front of one sleeve across the chest below the collar and down the front of the opposite sleeve. The phrase ‘A club like no other’ is featured on the nape of the neck on the inner hem.

A golden variation of the Celtic iconic badge sits over the heart, accompanied by New Balance and Dafabet logos in the same color. A few more horizontal lines run on the lower side of the front panel.
The shirt’s back is clean black, with Magners logo on top of it and a single line on the lower zone, leaving more than enough space for player name and numbers.
“When we’re playing away from Celtic Park we need a kit that gives us confidence, that shows we are strong, united and have spirit as a team and I think this kit does that,” says Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths. “It’s been really well-received by the team and we think the fans will really like this one too.”
“Celtic are, without doubt, one of the most successful clubs in the world,” commented Richard Wright, New Balance Football General Manager. “This new away kit looks stylish and carries the technology that will help the team to succeed on the pitch. We can’t wait to see it in action next season.”
