Nike unveils special 125th anniversary kit for Celtic

Sep '12
On Sunday November 6th 1887 eight men gathered in the meeting hall of St Mary’s Church in the East End of Glasgow, and Celtic Football Club was born.

125 years later, Celtic and Nike celebrate this landmark anniversary with a special commemorative kit to be launched on October 2nd 2012.

Replicating the uniform worn by Celtic in their very first match on May 28th, 1888, the 125th anniversary kit features a white shirt with a black collar backed with green, black shorts and green and black hooped socks. The very first Celtic cross club crest has also been redesigned respecting the club’s origins and Irish heritage.

The anniversary kit celebrates Celtic’s rich history and Nike’s design innovation to give the team a technically advanced kit that aids athlete comfort and performance.

The new kit features Nike’s ground-breaking recycled polyester, making it Nike’s most environmentally friendly kit ever produced.  Each kit (shirt and shorts) is made using up to thirteen recycled plastic water bottles.  This innovative manufacturing process reduces energy consumption by up to 30% compared to manufacturing traditional polyester. Since 2010 Nike has used an estimated 115 million recycled plastic bottles to create its high performance kits.

The kits are made out of 23% lighter fabric with 20% stronger knit structure than Nike’s previous kits and feature Nike Dri-FIT technology to wick moisture away from athletes to help keep them cool and dry on-pitch.

Kits have bonded re-enforced t-bar junctions that support critical seams on the shirt and shorts and inner welded seams with a flat finish construction to improve comfort and performance.  Temperature regulation is helped by ventilation zones, consisting of a series of tiny laser cut holes from the under arms to the waistband, allowing air to circulate to keep players comfortable.

As league champions and back playing in Europe’s premier club competition Celtic are looking to add new chapters to their illustrious history with the 125th anniversary kit a fitting tribute to a long and rich heritage.
