French Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain have launched their Nike 2013/14 away kit. Along with the latest PSG home kit that was released in May, it will be available at World Soccer Shop, Kitbag and Subside Sports.
According to Nike: French Champions Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) next season will play in a new predominantly white away kit that features modern colour-blocking of red, white and blue to celebrate the side’s famous club colours.
Young PSG fan Karim, winner of the #ICICESTPARIS contest, travelled to Sweden with Nike and the club on their pre-season tour to help unveil the new away kit.
The shirt has a tri-colour design — blue at the top, white in the middle and red at the bottom — giving it a youthful and passionate appearance that reflects club’s attachment to Paris.
The colour-blocking evolved from the distinctive vertical stripes that have traditionally appeared on the home shirt, with each colour representing a different club value: blue for grandeur, red to convey passion and white for respect.
Jersey details include a blue ribbed V-neck collar that blends into the top of the shirt, and a contrasting ribbed blue cuff on the sleeves.
The new away shorts are white with a thin blue stripe along each side, and the socks are white with a blue-and-red band at the top, and the more traditional blue-and red-stripe on the back to give players greater visual acuity on the pitch.
