New Balance has launched the new 2019/20 FC Porto away kit. The new shirt completes the defending twenty eight-time Portuguese Primeira Liga champions’ playing range for next season following the launch of the Porto 19/20 home and third jerseys.
Inspired by the striking tones of the match ticket from the club’s victory in the 2003 UEFA Cup Final, the FC Porto 2019/20 alternate jersey is constructed a lemon chrome body with a snorkel blue panel across the shoulders.
Developed using innovative NB DRY technology, a moisture wicking fabric that helps keep players fresh and dry from the first to final whistle. A bonded chest seam and a mesh top yoke are included to promote freedom of movement.
Lemon chrome athletic-fit shorts, with a step-change finish help increase flexibility and movement. Blue and lemon chrome socks are engineered with cushioning areas and ventilation technology to keep players comfortable and dry during games.
FC Porto star Jesús Corona said: “As players we look forward to the new kits every year. It’s great to see such a strong, striking design this season. Away from the Dragão, we want to show our creativity and energy and this kit will help us to do that. We can’t wait to step onto the pitch and show the fans our new kit.”
General Manager of New Balance Football, Kenny McCallum said, “Our focus was on delivering a kit that would give the fans something a little different, whilst still maintaining a style that is intrinsically linked to the history of FC Porto. We’ve been able to create a strip that honours a very special moment for the Club and we’re really looking forward to seeing it in action.”
The strip is part of New Balance’s “Dragons Together” campaign for 2019/20, which recognises the iconic dragon symbol of FC Porto and the Club’s nation of fans across the world. The campaign will bring FC Porto’s global, loyal fanbase closer during the upcoming season.
