Former Russian Premier League champions FC Zenit Saint Petersburg have dropped their 2018/19 home kit.
Modeled by Zenit players Leandro Paredes, Miha Mevlja, Branislav Ivanovic, Daler Kuzyaev and Andrei Lunev for its launch event at Saint-Petersburg Stadium, the new FC Zenit primary jersey is in the club’s usual light blue.
It uses Nike’s latest Vapor shirt design with a zigzag pattern running throughout. The effect is inspired by the club’s emblem, the Zenit arrow, and one of the prominent architectural features of Petersburg – the arrow of the Vasilievsky Island.
FC Zenit Saint Petersburg debuted their 2018/19 Nike home kit during Sunday’s season-closing 6-0 win over Russian Premier League bottom club SKA-Khabarovsk.
