It’s another season and yet another kit provider for now English Premier League stalwarts Wigan Athletic FC. For the 2009/10 season, the Lactics will wear gear provided by English sportswear company Vandanel.
Today, the new look Wigan Athletic FC Vandanel 09/10 away kit was unveiled. Apparently the club has now gone Dutch in a retro way. Here’s the spiel on the kit from Wigan Athletic’s website:
The kit is modelled on one of the best teams ever to grace a football pitch, the 1978 Dutch side who took the world by storm with their total football. 1978 is of course the year that the Latics claimed their place in the Football League and following a meteoric rise, look forward to a bright future in the Club’s forthcoming Barclays Premier League season.
The retro kit manufactured by technical kit partner Vandanel, features Club Principal Sponsor 188BET and a unique sleeve design…
The new away kit will be worn for the very first time in tonight’s pre-season friendly versus Preston North End and will be available for purchase on Thursday 13th August, two days before the Latics kick off their season away to Aston Villa.
