New Balance football released the FC Porto home kit for the reigning Portuguese Primeira Liga champion’s 2022/23 domestic and UEFA Champions League runs on Monday.
Featuring a classic interpretation of the club’s signature blue and white vertical stripes, the bespoke 22/23 shirt is an ode to tradition.
Subtle jacquard structures flow through the design of the blue stripes adding additional ventilation, continuing the Portuguese influence across the matching knitted shorts and socks.
Club captain, Pepe said: “FC Porto fans are super intense and passionate and there is always a great expectation about the new jersey. We know how important it is for the fans to see us honour our colours and our traditions”.
General Manager of New Balance Football, Kenny McCallum, added: “We’re excited about this year’s reimagined take on FC Porto’s classic kit. The powerful combination of heritage print alongside contemporary design really embodies the spirit of the Club”.
The release is part of New Balance’s “Unbreakable by Nature” campaign for FC Porto. The creative is guided by international photographer, Justin Bettman, who worked alongside the brand to help showcase the connection between the new design, the club, and its ties to the city.
New Balance has employed cutting-edge design technology across all 22/23 jerseys to ensure superior performance. Developed using innovative NB Dry technology to help keep players fresh and dry from the first to the final whistle.
