Southampton Football Club today revealed their 2022/23 third kit from technical partner hummel. It will be worn over the course of the team’s upcoming English Premier League, FA Cup, and EFL Cup seasons.
According to Southampton FC:
Created in partnership with hummel, the new Southampton FC third kit has been designed taking inspiration from the city’s rich aviation history and its connections to the RAF. The dark green and black shirt features a subtle detail design, taking reference from propellor blades.
Launched under the campaign, Bold is Brave, the club is celebrating bravery both on and off the pitch. The shirt features four stripes on either side of the shirt, in yellow, white, red and blue, taking inspiration from the RAF Roundel. The kit is matched with dark green shorts and green and black socks. The socks also feature the four stripes inspired by the RAF Roundel.
“We’re delighted to launch our third kit, with this shirt, we wanted to give a nod to our city’s connections to the RAF. Working with hummel has allowed us to be creative and celebrate that in the design of the shirt,” says Sarah Batters, Director of Marketing & Partnerships for Southampton Football Club.
The club is fully committed to creating a positive impact on the environment, as part of its dedicated sustainability strategy, The Halo Effect. Therefore, like last season, this season’s kit has been produced using Eco8 material made from fabric created using recycled plastic bottles.
