Beautiful In Blue | Sick Kit Friday
These are the sickest kits that dropped this week.
Bundesliga side Hamburg SV might’ve been pretty in pink away from home last year, but this year’s away kit has returned to one of the club’s traditional colors.And though the shades of blue are striking in and of themselves — 'Dark Marine' and ‘Mystery’ — what makes this kit really stand out is the diamond pattern the blues make.
Championship side Barnsley have also rolled out a new blue kit. Debuted last weekend, their 2017/18 away kits are lovely. The sleeves are a very rich navy, with the front slightly lighter and perforated-looking. Popping even lighter in that, too, is a very unique graphic: the club crest, slightly tilted and subtly hiding behind the gold sponsor and actual crest.
But the kits are limited-edition, so if you’re reading this, it may already be too late.
If there’s one thing better than a sick kit, it’s a sick kit for a cause.Guerilla FC collaborated with AMS Clothing to introduce the ‘Muumba’ kit — 10% of the profits of which will go to building a soccer academy in South Sudan. As for the kit itself — just take a look:
For their international friendlies over the next two months, Chapecoense have released a new, special edition kit for the tour. The Brazilian club who lost players, staff, and journalists in a devastating plane crash last season will wear a shirt honoring them: plain white, with 71 green stars marking the 71 lives lost. The slogan for the kit is ‘Somos Todos Chape,’ or ‘We Are All Chape.’
The kit will be debuted in their Joan Gamper Trophy match against Barcelona this coming Monday, and then used again against against both Urawa Red Diamonds and Roma.
