After their relegation from the English Premier League at the end of their 2009/10 campaign and well-publicized financial difficulties, 2010 FA Cup finalists Portsmouth FC managed a 16th place finish in the English Football League Championship during the 2010/11 season.
As Pompey looks towards next season under new owner Vladimir Antonov and with several internationals in their ranks, the Portsmouth FC Kappa 2011/12 away kit has been launched. The PFC website describes the new jersey as follows.
The shirt features chest-plate construction for a sleek, tailored fit. This shirt is a different design and fit to last season’s shirt.
The back of the neck bears the legend “Zeal Does Not Rest” – the motto of HMS Ark Royal since 1921, which has its origins in Lord Howard of Effingham’s victory over the Spanish Armada in 1588. The shirt features gold Omini logos to both shoulders.
