Southampton have launched their new home and third shirts for the 2020/21 season.
The 2020/21 home kit is a modern twist on the club’s iconic sash kit first worn back in 1885, with a predominantly red shirt featuring a white sash over the right shoulder.
The third kit boasts a red sash across a white shirt in tribute to the original kit when players would wear a physical sash over their shirt, placed over either shoulder.
Charlie Read, head of marketing at Saints, said: “As we mark the 135th anniversary of Southampton Football Club, the players, the staff and the fans alike are proud to remember our rich history, and that’s why the new kit features the iconic sash design that first graced Southampton’s shirts back in 1885.”
Luke Nicholson, director of brand and content at St Mary’s, added: “Despite the challenges that football clubs have had to face in recent months, our desire to find new and exciting ways to engage our fans remains strong.
“We hope the details within the game bring a smile to the faces of Saints fans and that they’re excited by our new kit to celebrate our 135-year history.”
