Olympique Lyonnais have revealed their new adidas home and away kits for the 2016/17 season. Inspired by their glorious history, the new jerseys honor the club’s heritage while sporting a modern look to stand out on the field.
The home jersey features a bold blue and red stripe running down the center of the front panel, taking inspiration from some kits used by the club during the early 2000’s. Hyundai logo is seen in blue, intercepting the aforementioned stripe. The blue/red division is continued on the collar, which also features a bicolor necktape and the phrase “Nous sommes L’Olypmpique Lyonnais” (“We are Olympique Lyonnais”) written on the inner side.
Away kit is mainly dark blue, adding some lighter hoops on the front to create an eye-catching look. Unlike the home jersey, which has the iconic three stripes on the sides, this one shows them positioned on top of the shoulders, ending when they reach the sleeves.
Hyundai logo is white to have a proper contrast against the two shades of blue, while red/white details appear on the neck and cuffs to form the French flag and show the club’s national pride.
Lyon are currently placed second in Ligue 1, which grants them access to the UEFA Champions League group stage. They’re being closely followed by Monaco and Saint-Etienne, so they cannot relax if the want to secure a spot in Europe’s major tournament next season.
