Adelaide United Football Club kick off their Hyundai A-League season against the Melbourne Victory on Friday. The South Australia team will wear a three kit collection from Kappa for their 2015/16 campaign.
According to the club two-time A-League Finals runners-up: United’s new home kit will once again be the traditional red, yet it also embodies South Australia’s state colours with yellow and blue detailing across it.
Meanwhile, the new away kit will be black, symbolising the Reds’ strong and imposing footballing style, but also embracing our classic red around the trimming of the collar and both sleeves.
The third strip will be worn on away matches where both the home and away strips’ colours coincide with United’s opposition. It will be cobalt blue in colour and is the first time our outfield players will wear blue.
In addition, Adelaide’s goalkeepers will have three differing kits. Similar to last season, one variation will be grey, whilst the new inclusions will be lime and lilac, but all three will have red detailing.
In conjunction with Kappa’s latest high-performance Hydro-Way fabric, ventilation panels down either side of the shirt provide extreme breathability for all types of playing conditions, increasing comfort and versatility.
Across all the shirts there is a unique dotted gradient pulsating horizontally through the middle with Kappa’s iconic and classical ‘Omini’ logos, which sit upon each shoulder of the shirts’ ergonomic fit.
The collars differ from last season’s shirt embracing more of a retro style, whilst the club’s crest is embroidered seamlessly over the Reds’ hearts.
We also have the club’s establishment date stamped onto the back of the collar, representing the Reds’ birth into Australia’s professional footballing world.
