Crystal Palace FC used the club’s annual Award Night at the Fairfield Halls in Croyden to unveil their 2015/16 home and away soccer kits. The new looks are inspired by the club’s look as well as classic jersey styles from around Europe and are made by Technical Sponsor Macron.
Alan Pardew’s side will be playing in their third consecutive Premier League campaign next year and the red and blue striped jersey is classic Palace. The jersey has 4 wide stripes on the body and with the right sleeve in red and the left in blue.
The crew collar has an interesting look with the left half blue and the right half red.
The jersey is provided a splash of color with yellow detail use as an insert on the side of the sleeve cuffs as well as on the side seam of the waist. The same yellow color is used for the Macron Logo on the left chest and on the sleeves.
‘Crystal Palace F.C.’ is embroidered below the collar on the home and away jerseys.
The away jersey is white with a vertical red and blue sash down the center. The look is inspired by famous sash kits of the past. The half red and half blue crew collar is also used on the away jersey. The detail elements the sleeve and waist inserts are in blue along with all the Macron branding.
The current jersey sponsor Neteller will not be used again next season. The sponsorship deal with Optimal Payments PLC runs through the 2015/16 campaign so it is believed the company will promote another one of their brands on the Eagles jerseys.
“There’s only so many things you can do with a striped shirt so we take a lot of inspiration from the fans and look at kits around Europe and I think the two shirts we’ve got this year, particularly the away shirt, are fantastic,” Chairman Steve Parish told the club’s official website. “We have completely unique shirts that are designed specifically for us by Macron who are brilliant partners so we’re looking at having the same success this year.”
The Crystal Palace jersey is scheduled to be received by World Soccer Shop at the end of the summer.
