New Balance Football have unveiled the 2016/17 Celtic FC away kit. The new Bhoys shirt has been released as part of the ‘Like No Other’ campaign for the upcoming season. It will be available at UK Soccer Shop, Kitbag, Subside Sports, Lovell Soccer and World Soccer Shop along with the perennial Scottish Premier League champions’ new home jersey.
This latest kit features an imposing black and gold design with trimmings around the collar and cuffs. Recognition of the team’s dominance is forever immortalised with the words ‘A Club Like No Other’ etched in gold to the internal hem.
Commenting on the kit, General Manager of New Balance Football, Richard Wright said: “Celtic FC are without doubt one of the most successful Clubs in the world. This new away kit looks stylish and carries the technology that will help the team to succeed on the pitch. We can’t wait to see it in action next season.”
The Celtic FC 2016/17 away kit has been developed using NB Dry technology, a moisture wicking fabric that helps keep players cool and dry whilst wicking sweat from the body, making it fast drying. The kit features a gradiant gold stripe detail to the body, gold piping, mesh panelling and is finished with a shaped gold and black collar.
The uniform is completed with shorts in the same black, with gold trimmings incorporated into the club crest, number and New Balance logo. The socks also receive the same black colour base with gold finishing. To offer added support to the ankle, the socks have built in comfort zones while the foot bed has been developed with polypropylene to help alleviate excess moisture when the foot makes contact with the boot.
The Celtic 16/17 away goalkeeper kit is constructed with engineered Flex fabric panels to offer range of movement. These Flex zones are called out by contrast heat transfers. The Titan purple design with black shoulder Flex panels is complemented with the Titan shorts and Titan socks.
Celtic FC’s Leigh Griffiths said: “When we’re playing away from Celtic Park we need a kit that gives us confidence, that shows we are strong, united and have spirit as a team and I think this kit does that. It’s been really well received by the team and we think the fans will really like this one too.”
