Now regular English Premier League title contenders Tottenham Hotspur Football Club have signed a multi-year technical partnership with Nike. The unveiling of the Spurs 2017/18 home and away kits immediately followed the announcement of the deal. Both shirts will be on sale at World Soccer Shop, UK Soccer Shop, Subside Sports, Lovell Soccer, Pro:Direct Soccer and Kitbag.
Nike’s first season with the club will see the likes of Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Eric Dier, Toby Alderweireld and Hugo Lloris outfitted in Nike Vapor kits as they embark on a campaign at the highest level both domestically and on the continent (via their 2017/18 UEFA Champions League group stage qulification). These match kits feature Aeroswift technology, representing Nike’s most advanced performance apparel to date.
For one season only, the Tottenham Hotspur crest – comprised of the famous cockerel motif atop a football – has been enclosed in a shield design. The 2017/18 crest nods to one of Tottenham Hotspur’s finest achievements, becoming the first post-war club to win both the Football League First Division and FA Cup in the 1960/61 season.
In that era, the team’s shirts were embellished with a shield-style crest, and with legendary manager, Bill Nicholson, at the helm, the club sealed a historic league and cup double with an FA Cup Final win at Wembley Stadium. As Spurs return to the national stadium – this time for a full season while their state-of-the-art new home is being constructed in Tottenham – the shield makes its comeback. It harkens back to a crowning moment in the club’s past and serves as a reminder to the 2017/18 generation that its history is theirs to be written.
In both of Tottenham Hotspur’s home and away kits for 201718, this updated crest features high-performance materials in traditional club colours, crafted to enhance ventilation, increase ease of motion and reduce weight.
Tottenham Hotspur is synonymous with a classic white colour palette. For the 2017/18 season , Nike has produced a clean home jersey in bright white that, whilst being a part of the club’s most innovative kit to date, feels truly Spurs. Subtle text is embedded into the kit, adding detailing that anchors the design in the club’s identity.
“SPURS” is knitted into the back of the round neck, where a navy blue trim embellishes the shirt, and the numbers “2017” and “2018” are knitted inside the left and right cuffs, respectively, referencing the season that lies ahead at Wembley. Completing the Spurs 17/18 home kit are predominantly white socks with NikeGrip technology for the ultimate boot-to-foot connection. They feature “THFC” on the shin, set below the Nike Swoosh.
The first-ever Nike away kit for Tottenham Hotspur has rich navy blue with white detailing from head-to-toe, uniting the two colors most closely associated with the North London club. In the legendary 1960/61 season that inspired the 2017/18 crest, the double-winning side also sported a navy blue away kit.
Reinforcing the sense of club identity imbued in the kit, “SPURS,” “2017” and “2018” are spelled out in the knit of the Tottenham 2017/18 away shirt, whilst “THFC” features in white text on the navy blue-coloured NikeGrip socks.
Tottenham Hotspur will debut their 2017/18 Nike home Kit in their International Champions Cup match against Paris Saint-Germain in Orlando on July 22. The team will wear the away Kit for the first time when they take on Manchester City in Nashville on July 29.
