Popular English Premier League team Everton FC has released a limited edition 2021/22 ‘Stars and Stripes’ pre-match jersey.
EFC says the shirt “inspired by its fanbase in the USA and celebrating the Club’s long-standing, historic ties with the country.”
The kit has a light blue base with a melange effect. A series of horizontal stripes and stars reminiscent of the United States national flag appear in dark blue across the jersey’s front. White adds detail at the rear neckline and shoulders.
hummel CEO Allan Vad Nielsen commented: “Having created such a strong bond with Everton fans in the United States, we wanted to do something that would specifically recognise their support and passion for the football club, but also celebrate the historic ties that have linked Everton and their country going back over a number of decades.
“In using the iconic Stars and Stripes, we believe we have produced a shirt that is an obvious celebration of that US connection the Club has, but one that, through its style and colour scheme, remains classically Everton. We hope the design is well received and look forward to strengthening our friendship with Evertonians in the States even further in future.”
