Promotion-chasing EFL Championship side Queens Park Rangers Football Club will wear a special edition 140th Anniversary kit from technical partner Erreà for Saturday’s match against West Brom. The shirt pays tribute to the colors worn by predecessor club Christchurch Rangers in 1882. QPR was formed via a merger with St. Jude’s Institute in 1886.
According to QPR: “Created by our partners Errea, the shirt combines vintage elements with some more contemporary features, as well as a few extra details.
Sporting an elegant mandarin collar with small buttons, as the original shirts would have included, the shirt is divided into light-and-dark-blue halves to replicate the first shirt in our history.
Offering a perfect fit and maximum freedom of movement, the kit is made from soft and comfortable skin technical fabric which, thanks to its double-knit structure, ensures ventilation and optimum body temperature regulation, and creates a ‘second-skin’ effect.
The outline of an old street map has been incorporated into the shirt as a watermark, showcasing the Queen’s Park area where our roots began, with the location of St. Jude’s Church located closely to the crest.
Designed by lifelong QPR fans Daniel Norris and Daniel Bowyer, the crest itself is another commemorative feature with the addition of a banderole or scroll underneath the badge marking the 140 years.”
