Western United FC unveil inaugural Hyundai A-League jerseys

Western United FC revealed their inaugural playing jerseys on Tuesday night ahead of the club's maiden Hyundai A-League 2019/20 campaign.

On another landmark day for the competition’s newest team, United launched the home and alternate jerseys they will wear next season.

The home strip is composed of vertical green and black stripes, accompanied by the club’s unique shield-less club logo.

United went for something completely different with their alternate strip which features a geometric design inspired by the green wedge from within the new club logo.

In a statement, the club said the motif was derived from the west pointer in a 4-point compass rose to symbolise that “no matter where the team plays, they will always pay respect to the fans and the values of the west."

The club consulted with the fans as well as their official apparel partner Kappa in coming up with the design of the jerseys, which have been designed to reflect the club's modern approach both on and off the pitch.


“We strongly believe that a team’s strip should reflect their visions for the future,” Western United CEO Maurice Bisetto said.

“We have a fan base that is looking for us to make a bold statement in our first season.

“We’ve collaborated with Kappa to produce designs for our jersey which we feel will help us stand out from the crowd.”

The unveiling of the playing kit is one of the last pieces of the puzzle for United ahead of their debut campaign.

Inaugural head coach Mark Rudan will be flanked by assistants former Central Coast Mariner John Hutchinson and NPL Victoria stalwart John Anastasiadis, while ex-Bundesliga gloveman Frank Juric is the club's goalkeeper coach.

The club have also signed 18 players so far, including Greek international Panagiotis Kone, Caltex Socceroos defender Josh Risdon and Wellington Phoenix captain Andrew Durante.
