Looking for your favorite Barclays Premier League’s club gear but without the $90+ sticker shock that comes with official replica or the $120+ price tag on player issue kits? We recommend checking out training kits. These jerseys carry embroidered club badges and technical sponsor (by that we mean adidas, Nike, PUMA, etc.) logos.
They’re designed with player comfort in mind since they’re worn for up to five days a week in training sessions and may not have glaring sponsor logos in that in some cases make you look like a walking billboard.
To get you started in the realm of training kits here is a look at the jerseys being worn by the Premier League’s “Big 5” clubs during their match preparation activities.
PUMA has issued the Gunners just one training jersey for the 2014/15 season. It incorporates Arsenal’s famous red with a block of white at its middle area. One sleeve is in this season’s third kit color of dark blue in what almost looks like a captain’s armband. PUMA logos appear on the chest and both sleeves.
The current Premier League title favorites and the league’s most in-form team of the moment have a four training shirt kit collection from adidas. Sky blue and dark blue are Chelsea’s league training kit colors for domestic competition. The Blues area wearing purple and bright yellow when they are getting ready for UEFA Champions League action. The UCL kits bear the competition’s logo in place on the adidas logo on their chest areas.
The resurgent Reds are a big enough club to have separate sponsors for their match and training kits. While the Liverpool match shirts are sponsors by financial outfit Standard Chartered, their training gear is adorned with the branding of airline Garuda Indonesia.
Along with a variety of Warrior training jackets and drill tops, Liverpool is wearing match prep kits in all black and red for the 201415 season. Most of their new signing presentations (including that of Italian superstar Mario Balotelli have seen the players wearing the black top.
Man United have a three training jersey collection this time around. The crewneck shirts are in red, black and dark blue with fine tonal stripes. While the red and blue kits have they Aon logo on them, the stunning dark blue kit doesn’t. All three have shoulder stripes in contrasting colors.
The defending Premier League champions 2014/15 training shirts do not have sponsor logos. They come in City’s famous sky blue, a very dark blue and striped purple. They use the same crewneck design as the latest training kits of local rivals and fellow Nike club Manchester United.
