Scottish Premier League giants Celtic FC have launched their Nike 2009/10 International kit. The kit is expected to be Celtic’s first choice strip for the club’s non-Scotland based games next season. Here’s a description of the new kit from the Celtic’s website.
The new International kit, out on June 12, is inspired by the club’s roots and heritage, and the pride the supporters feel in following their team to the four corners of the earth.
Central to the new strip is the Celtic tartan, which features on both the shoulder of the shirt, and in the shorts.
The tartan, in the club’s own pattern, represents the Scottish home of the current champions, and the colours of pine green, white and yellow gold reflects Celtic’s cherished Irish roots.
The lightweight performance Dri-Fit shirt, in classic, clean Football White features a Celtic tartan taping on the shoulder, to tie the design into the shorts, and the club crest over the left chest.
The shorts are the focal point of the kit. The all-over tartan print gives a striking aesthetic, and is sure to be a hit this summer as Celtic fans fly the flag for their club around the world.
The white socks feature a pine green hoop.
The 2009/10 Celtic FC International kit is now available for pre-order at Kitbag.com. It goes on sale on June 12, 2009.
