Kit information

The new home kit was launched in April 2011 and featured a very broad horizontal shadow design, inspired by the kits in 1980s. The other unique feature was that the trimmings had a white block on them, so they were blue for the first time in the history of the club on the home kit. The away kit was unsurprisingly black and featured a 'fresh splash' turquoise squares on the upper chest, giving it a very unique design. The new third shirt was white with an indigo and yellow block on the upper chest. The new goalkeeper kit turned out to be white with maroon trimmings and socks, while the macaw/black and navy/fluo green goalkeeper outfits from the previous seasons were retained, should they be needed.
