Burnley Football Club is the first current English Premier League side to officially launch a 2010/11 kit. The Clarets unveiled their Puma 2010/11 home kit earlier tonight at the club’s 100 years of Claret and Blue exhibition in which every Burnley kit from the past century was on show.
According to Burnley’s website:
For the 100th anniversary of the club wearing the famous claret and blue, Puma have been entrusted with dressing the Clarets for future success.
The Puma brand adorns the breast of the home shirt for the first time, and there is also a subtle change to the ‘old’ club crest initially recreated for the 2009/10 promotion winning campaign – the words ‘Burnley Football Club’ replacing the Latin inscription Pretiumque Et Causa Laboris in a move aimed at finalising a permanent new club crest.
The new kit, also featuring the branding of new club sponsor, Fun88.com, has a modern V-neck in blue, with eye-catching white flashes on the sleeves and body.
A stamp, within the neck line of the shirt, celebrates 100 years of Claret and Blue.
Both the home and away kit, which is to be revealed at a later date, use an interlock and mesh fabric that gives lightweight performance, with style and durability for the fans.
