New home, away and third strips available soon
Pompey are delighted to reveal their new home, away and third kits for the 2016/17 campaign.
The strips have been prepared by Sondico after fans voted for their favourite designs in an online poll last autumn.
They were modelled by first team stars Conor Chaplin, Gary Roberts and Jack Whatmough.
Also lending a hand were Ray Westbrook (Pompey Amps captain and Team GB), Lloyd Carroll (Pompey Powerchair footballer), Rudi Matthews and Charlie Smith (Pompey Cerebral Palsy footballers), and Brittany Jeal (Pompey Ladies midfielder).
The club are committed to being open and inclusive, so using representatives of the various teams which represent Pompey was seen as the ideal way to demonstrate that commitment in a high-profile way.
Director of community projects Clare Martin said: “It was a fantastic opportunity for players from Pompey's inclusive teams to be involved in the kit launch!
“The youngsters were so excited and had an absolutely brilliant time. It's great to be a part of a club that doesn't just talk about being inclusive, but is proactively promoting opportunities for everyone."
Pompey will play in their classic colours of blue shirt, white shorts and red socks at Fratton Park.
The away strip includes a white shirt with diagonal blue stripe, along with blue shorts and socks, while the third kit is all black with gold trim.
Roberts said: “The new kit looks lovely and I think it’s a step up from last season. There’s lots of nice detail and it’s a really classy design.
“It’s also comfortable to wear, which is important – if you feel good, then you play good.
“My favourite is the black strip and I’m looking forward to wearing it during the 2016/17 campaign.”
The home kit will go on sale from 9am on Thursday (July 21) and can be bought online here or from the Pompey Store on the corner of Goldsmith Avenue and Fratton Way.
The away and third strips will be available to buy from Thursday, August 4.
