Managed by former FC Porto, Chelsea and Tottenham boss André Villas-Boas and featuring Brazilian internationals Hulk and Oscar, Shanghai SIPG are among the contenders for the 2017 Chinese Super League and AFC Champions League titles.
The well-funded club recently launched their 2017 home kit from CSL outfitter Nike. Like all of Nike’s federation and big name club jerseys released over the last year the shirt uses the sportswear giant’s Vapor template.
It is in the customary red of Shanghai SIPG with a series of tonal stripes on its front. The stripes are in turn made up of pinstripes that are arranged to create a gradient effect. The collar trim, Nike Swoosh, sponsor logos and player names and numbering on the kit are all white. “SHANGHAI” is printed on the outside rear collar.
