NEW ST PATS 2010/2011 AWAY KIT ON-SALE 12TH AUGUST
St Patrick's Athletic FC in conjunction with kit partners UMBRO are delighted to announce the launch of the new St Pats Away Kit for the 2010/11 seasons.
The new kit will be worn when there is a kit clash in away games in all League and Cup ties for the remainder of the 2010 season and through the first half of 2011.
Going forward the kit rotation will work as follows:
- Home Kit will run for 2 seasons (so this seasons kit will run until the end of the 2011 season)
- Away Kit will run for 1 year as the official away kit and in the second year it will be the 3rd Kit â€“ being replaced by a new one.
(The only change to this rotation should be down to a sponsor change)
The new "tailored by Umbro kit" launches in the Club Store on Thursday 12th of August.
The new kit will also be available at the FAI/UMBRO stores on Westmoreland Street and Suffolk Street in Dublin For supporters convenience online orders can be placed from Thursday 5th August at www.faishop.com.
The new Dark Navy & Sky Jersey features an embossed St Pats Crest around the embroidered club crest.
The high performance â€śskinâ€ť material features a moisture management coating which helps keep the athlete and supporter alike cool and dry.
The shorts will be Dark Navy with Sky side panels and the kit is finished off with Sky Blue Sox.
Commenting on the kit, Jonathan Courtenay Umbro Irelands Director of Football said
â€śWe are delighted to be involved with the announcement of this new tailored by Umbro Pats kit today, The kit looks stunning, it has an authentic football look to it while integrating many modern features such as performance material and embossing.
I fully understand that the fans have been eager to get their hands on both the home and away kits this season and an unavoidable sponsor change did delay the usually smooth process.
Production times are consistent regardless of the club involved; however as mentioned a change of sponsor can have a significant time effect on the process.
The specific working relationship between Umbro and St Pats is more solid than ever and we look forward to working with the club for the next 3 and a half years and hopefully beyond.
I hope that the kit rotation out-lined in the press release will also help clear things up for the supporters.
We expect this jersey to fly off the shelves so best of luck grabbing yours on August 12thâ€ť.
