Today New Balance has unveiled the new 2017/18 FC Porto home kit. The shirt has been launched as part of the ‘Joga Sem Fronteiras’ or ‘Play without Boundaries’ campaign for the 2017/18 season.
This year’s FC Porto home kit sees a return of the iconic Oporto Blue and white stripes that have been a constant feature of FC Porto’s home kit’s since 1909. The 17/18 kit includes a white rib crew neck collar and cuffs with tipping detail. A full colour FC Porto crest applied to the chest.
General Manager of New Balance Football, Richard Wright stated: “This kit is the embodiment of a classic design coupled with optimum performance. Not only does it keep the tradition of this great club, but the inclusion of our NB kit technology will allow the team to play without worry about restrictions and break any boundaries set before them.
I am looking forward to next season and FC Porto competing at the highest level both domestically and abroad.”
FC Porto’s 2017/18 New Balance home uniform kit is completed with Oporto Blue shorts and white socks. Zonal cushioning integrated within the sock’s ankle and Achilles areas offers added support. The foot bed has been developed with polypropylene to alleviate excess moisture when the foot makes contact with the boot.
The new Dragões (Dragons)goalkeeper kit has been engineered in line with the outfield players’ jerseys sporting a mock vent and back body map mesh system to compliment the outfield kit aesthetic.
The rich all black design with full colour crest, and white sponsor and NB branding has an opposing look, completed by the tonal three colour sleeve pattern.
FC Porto player Alex Telles said; “It is an honour to wear the blue and white stripes of FC Porto and represent this great club. The team are looking forward to wearing this kit in the Estádio do Dragão next season and bringing more success to the club.”
