Crystal Palace have launched new PUMA home, away and third kits for the 2020/21 season, released together under the tagline ‘These Colours Unite Us All’.
All three kits follow the same design concept, with the traditional red and blue home strip complemented by a white away kit and a black third kit.The home shirt, available to pre-order, features a central red stripe and blue shoulders and arms. It will be worn with matching blue short and blue socks.
The new away shirt is predominantly white, featuring a red central stripe and blue under the arms and down the side of the torso. The third jersey is predominantly black, also with a red central stripe and blue under the arms and down the side of the torso.
Palace chairman Steve Parish has said that he was inspired when he saw concept designs published by a fan on social media and worked with Puma to create ‘perfect synergy’ across all three new kits.
It is also the first time since the 2012/13 promotion season – when Palace earned their place in the Premier League via the Championship playoffs – that the club has had a single shared design.“I was immediately inspired when I saw the concept from a supporter who had shared designs on Instagram, with perfect synergy across all the kits for the upcoming season,” Parish told the club’s official website. “Working closely with PUMA and our design team at Crystal Palace, we believed these were the designs we had to bring to life, and I’m proud to say we’ve done so.
“I fully believe these kits are bold and eye-catching enough to captivate both current supporters and new ones – wherever they may be – and I look forward to seeing the team wear them throughout the upcoming Premier League campaign.”
