The dominant force in the Scottish Premier League, Celtic Football Club, have unveiled a white third kit for their 2014/15 domestic and European seasons.
Available soon at Kitbag, Subside Sports and World Soccer Shop along with the Bhoys’ already launched 14/15 away shirt, the new shirt makes its on the pitch debut during Sunday’s pre-season meeting with Rapid Wien. It was modeled by players Scott Brown, Anthony Stokes, Kris Commons, Virgil van Dijk and Beram Kayal for its unveiling at Austria’s Bad Leonfelden.
Celtic played in a white shirt for their first ever game in May 1888, and now this new third shirt pays homage to the club’s founders with a nod to the past, but with a fresh and new look for the future.
The shirt boasts a green, white and gold chest band, a modern interpretation of the Irish tricolor, to celebrate the club’s origins, having been founded in 1887 by Irish Marist priest Brother Walfrid.
The shirt also features a constructed V-neck collar with a gold band inside the neck, and green cuffs on the sleeves.
Inside the back of the neck is a green and white pennant tab reflecting Celtic’s famous hoops from their home shirt with the proud statement: “A club like no other.”
The new third shorts are white with a thin green stripe along each side, while the socks are white with a green band at the top, and a wide tonal stripe of chevrons on the back.
Celtic skipper, Scott Brown said: “I think it’s brilliant. It’s a really nice kit and is a good fit as well. The strip is very bright and something a bit different. It’s good to have a white kit again and I’m looking forward to wearing it this season.
“It’s our third kit but hopefully we will get a lot of use out it over the campaign and can have a lot of success while wearing it.”
