Sydney FC have unveiled their new kits for the 2019/20 Hyundai A-League season.
The Sky Blues will be defending their Championship in kits designed by Under Armour, who are producing the club's off-field products for the next four seasons.
The kits take inspiration from the architecture of one of the most distinct and unique buildings in the world - The Sydney Opera House.
Each of the new kits features Sydney FC’s iconic sky blue – including the main colourway of the team’s home kit – with various shades of blue that is a nod to the Sky Blue’s rich history and the traditional state colour of New South Wales.
The away kit includes sky blue trimming on the sleeves alongside a main white jersey, while the third kit takes a bold direction with a charcoal colour complimented with sky blue trimming on the shoulders and across the chest.
The shoulders of the home and third kit feature a pattern that resembles the iconic external ceramic tiles on the roof of the Opera House that has become synonymous with the city. In addition, this same gradient pattern transcends the front and back of the team’s away kit.
“The new Under Armour designs are unbelievable and I think we will look fantastic this season,” said midfielder Milos Ninkovic.
“The thought and innovation which has gone into all three strips is fantastic and it will be fitting for us to be wearing them as Champions.”
The partnership between Under Armour and Sydney is the first between the American sports apparel giant and an Australian professional sports team.
