Club Brugge KV unveiled their 2016/17 Nike home, away and third kits on Tuesday night at a local concert hall. The shirts are the Belgian Pro League champions 125th Anniversary kits.
The Club Brugge 16/17 Nike home shirt is the first from the team to not have blue and black stripes since 1992. The mainly blue look of the jersey is inspired by the FCB kits worn in the 1970s when they won four domestic league titles and made it to the final of the UEFA Cup (now the Europa League) and European Cup Winners Cup. The black shorts ans socks that were parts of most Brugge strips of the 70s and 80s complete the primary uniform.
Club Brugge’s 16/17 Nike away jersey is in the alternate white that the team has often used since 1932. An red diagonal stripe runs along the front on the jersey. It pays homage to several of the club’s early kits and city of Bruges (whose flag has red and white stripes).
An simple all gold third kit completes the Clube Brugge match range for their upcoming domestic and UEFA Champions League campaigns. Like the home and away shirts, it has the text “NO SWEAT NO GLORY” printed on its upper outside back.
League champions for the fourteenth time in their history last season, Club Brugges return to competitive action on July 23 when they meet Standard Liege in the Belgian Supercup.
