A fixture in the Italian Serie A for much of the 2000s Empoli FC was relegated from Italy’s top flight at the end of the 2007/08 season and has campaigned in Serie B since.
As the Tuscany-based club looks towards the kickoff of the new season against Reggina today, the Empoli FC 2012/13 home, away and third kits have been launched. They are provided by Italian sportswear firm Royal.
The Empoli 12/13 home kit is highlighted by the Cross of Sant’Andrea (the patron saint of Empoli) on its left breast area. The away kit is white with blue and red horizontal pinstripes while the club’s new third kit is red with blue accents.
