Paris Saint-Germain has just unveiled their new look for the 2013-14 season. The new shirt was worn against Brest during their last game of the season, celebrating their first French league title since 1994, and is already garnering a lot of attention for its atypical design.
This Nike jersey design is a new take on the classic PSG look, typically featuring a vertical red stripe at the center. This time around, the upper part of the stripe is white, the center is blue to provide space for the Fly Emirate sponsorship and the bottom block will be red. According to Nike, the shirt features a combination of “blue for grandeur, red for passion and white to represent respect”. The shirt also has red cuffs and a simple round collar, while the shorts will also be dark blue to complete the outfit.
The jersey is just one of the many changes the French team has experienced recently, as the new shirt will also feature a redesigned crest. However, many fans might consider them a fair trade-off given the arrival of stars such as Ibrahimović, Thiago Silva, Lavezzi, Pastore and Lucas Moura, as well as the increased recognition and achievements enjoyed by the club since Qatar Sports Investment’s takeover.
