Today New Balance has unveiled the new 2018/19 FC Porto away kit. The shirt is launched as part of the ‘Born For Success’ campaign, which marks the 125th anniversary in the club’s history and celebrates FC Porto winning the 2017/18 Primeira Liga title.
The kit has been engineered using innovative NB DRY technology. The 18/19 Dragões (Dragons) jersey wicks moisture away from the skin to help keep players fresh and dry from first to final whistle. The 2018/19 away kit incorporates a vibrant Cyber Yellow and Frost Grey combination. The jersey also features top shoulder bonded tape, full colour embroidered crest and a crossover v-neck collar.
The Frost Grey shorts complete the look, featuring a concealed stretch fabric insert which also runs down the side of the shirt. The socks feature an elasticated ankle zone and rib Achilles region with cushioned protection. An additional cushioned heel zone and vented cushioned footbed and toe section have been designed to help players play with power, comfort and extra support.
General Manager of New Balance Football, Kenny McCallum said: “The New Balance design team has done an amazing job of creating a kit that will grab attention on and off the pitch. We want to equip the FC Porto team with high performance shirt technology, which we have delivered in this range. It will be great to see the reaction of fans all around the world.”
FC Porto player Alex Telles said: “It’s been a great season for us, and we’re all looking forward to next season already. This kit captures a piece of Porto and the team is going to be proud to wear this new kit when playing away from the Dragão.”
