Crystal Palace Launch Home and Away Kits For 2016/17

FA Cup finalists Crystal Palace have launched their new European-inspired kits for the 2016/17 season.

Home Kit 2016/17

This will be the 43rd season that the club have worn a blue and red striped shirt since they were first introduced in 1973. Manufacturer Macron has introduced a wide central blue stripe guarded either side by  red stripes which merge into the sleeves in Crystal Palace’s 2016/17 Home Kit

The shirt is proving controversial. Mimicking PSG’s design, the thick blue stripe on the shirt merges with the blue shorts and thicker blue stripe on the socks. Palace believe that “the single thicker central stripe will become many when the players line up in a row, evoking a spirit of togetherness and symbolises the whole being greater than the sum of its parts.”

Defensive walls won’t be quite the same again.

Away Kit 2016/17

For their 2016/17 away kit, Crystal Palace have gone back to 70s Barcelona, reminiscent of the kit worn by Johan Cruyff among others.

It’s an all-yellow number, Palace have taken the Barcelona influenced top, reversing the diagonal sash to run from the left shoulder to right waist. With yellow shorts and socks, they have taken the Barcelona look and made it their own.


Some Palace fans have already aired negative views of the kits but do you think The Eagles are soaring with these designs? Let us know in the comments.
