Everton Football Club are now the midst of getting ready for their 2017/18 Premier League, UEFA League and domestic cup runs with new signings such as Wayne Rooney, Davy Klaassen and Jordan Pickford now in training.
Technical sponsor Umbro and Everton today revealed the club’s 2017/18 away kit. It will be on sale at World Soccer Shop, Kitbag, Subside Sports, Lovell Soccer and UK Soccer Shop along with the popular team’s new home shirt.
According to Everton FC: The kit has been unveiled as part of a campaign entitled #TogetherInspired – recognising and celebrating the impact travelling Evertonians have at away games.
The Toffees’ 17/18 away kit design takes inspiration from the iconic tower which features on the Club crest and the memorial gates at Goodison Park, using a subtle geometric pattern to bring tradition into a modern kit design.
Complementing the new Everton 2017/18 home kit, the strip includes a slimline version of Umbro’s classic diamond graphic running down the sleeves and a Dixie Dean motif on the back of the neck, as chosen by Evertonians through a fan vote.
The Club has worn grey in other seasons, including 1988/90, 1994/96, 2001/02, 2005/06 and also during the 1984/85 title winning campaign.
To help improve performance on the pitch, Umbro has used a jacquard fabric with ergonomic placed panels. The knitted graphic pattern and contrast heat applied tape provide heritage, with a professional design. The accompanying shorts in a darker block grey have a tailored silhouette and a combination of stretch woven and mesh fabrics for easier movement, while the socks feature separate leg and technical ankle sections.
