Paris Saint-Germain to play next away season in Nike kit

July 25, 2013 - France

French Champions Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) next season will play in a new predominantly white away kit that features modern colour-blocking of red, white and blue to celebrate the side’s famous club colours. Young PSG fan Karim, winner of the #ICICESTPARIS contest, travelled to Sweden with Nike and the club on their pre-season tour to help unveil the new away kit.

The shirt has a tri-colour design — blue at the top, white in the middle and red at the bottom — giving it a youthful and passionate appearance that reflects club’s attachment to Paris.

The colour-blocking evolved from the distinctive vertical stripes that have traditionally appeared on the home shirt, with each colour representing a different club value: blue for grandeur, red to convey passion and white for respect.

Jersey details include a blue ribbed V-neck collar that blends into the top of the shirt, and a contrasting ribbed blue cuff on the sleeves.

The new away shorts are white with a thin blue stripe along each side, and the socks are white with a blue-and-red band at the top, and the more traditional blue-and red-stripe on the back to give players greater visual acuity on the pitch.
