French Ligue 1 side Lille OSC has unveiled its Umbro 2012/13 third kit.
According to a release from Umbro: Highlighting the links between supporters and the club that make LOSC more than just a football team, some of the team’s supporters have been chosen to unveil the new Lille OSC third shirt.
The new shirt, which will be worn by the club in European fixtures throughout the 2012/13 season, has vitus black and grey halves, a stylish look for one of the smartest teams in France. The club crest, Umbro double diamond and sponsors logo feature in Flanders yellow, a subtle nod to the historic region of Europe in which Lille is situated.
Crafted from a lightweight, breathable material, the new shirt also has displaced shoulder seams to minimize abrasion and encourage movement.
The 25 fans that are proudly wearing the new shirt in the picture above have been chosen from thousands of Lille supporters who put themselves forward to be a part of this historic season for LOSC. They feature in the new shirt alongside players from the club, emphasising the close links and community spirit that lie behind Lille OSC’s continued success.
As the club look forward to moving into the beautiful Grand Stade Lille Métropole stadium and further success on the pitch at home and in Europe, this smart new third shirt accompanies the new home and away kits to ensure that LOSC will be one of the most stylish teams around.
