Third place Spanish La Liga finisher Valencia CF presented new signing Adil Rami and its 2011/12 ‘Senyera de la Afición’ jersey from new kit provider Joma. The kit launch precedes that of the Valencia 2011/12 home, away and third strips at the end of June.
The Valencia ‘Senyera de la Afición’ (now available at World Soccer Shop) is a specially designed fan shirt that carries the colors of the flag of the Autonomous Community of Valencia. The colors were often used for Valencia’s away kit from the 1970s to 1990s when the likes of Mario Kempes and Fernando Gómez led the team to two Copa del Rey titles.
DamiÃ Vidagany, VCF Comunications Director, said that kit is part of an annual ‘retro’ shirt initiative ‘that celebrates and pays homage to Valencian heroes of the past.
“In just three days we have received some 500 photos from fans posing with the previous Senyeras, as part of our competition. At the heart of Valencianismo is the Senyera and it has been so for many years.”
