While an English Premier League club during the 2010/11 season, Birmingham City FC got their first major trophy in 48 years when it beat Arsenal to win the Carling Cup. However, poor league results saw the team relegated to the English Football League Championship on the last day of the season.
As the Brummies look for a quick bounce back to the Premiership under new manager Chris Hughton, the Birmingham City 2011/12 Xtep home and away kits were launched earlier this month. The club’s Carling Cup has qualified it for the UEFA Europa League Play-Offs. In preparation for a European run, the Birmingham City 2011/12 Xtep third kit was unveiled on Friday. It will be used as Birmingham’s first choice kit for its Europa League away matches next season.
