The new Wolves official change kit for the 2007-2008 season has been unveiled and will go on sale at 9.00am on Friday 8th June at the Molineux and Dudley Street retail stores.Pre orders are now being taken at both stores.
Modelled by Wolves star players Mark Little and Andy Keogh, the kit has once again been manufactured by Le Coq Sportif who are in their fourth season as the official kit supplier at Wolves.
The new kit is navy blue with Wolves" old gold" and white trim and was the preferred choice of both Mick McCarthy and the Fans Parliament earlier this year, when they were asked to assist in the design and selection process.The shirt is made from 100% polyester interlock fabric, with hexagonal style fabric detail, similar in shape to the Wolves crest.
There are "old gold" cut and sew panels to the side and back of the shirt together with white fabric piping detail. Both the official Wolves crest and Le Coq Sportif logo are embroidered onto the left and right of the shirt front and printed in the centre is the logo of Chaucer,
who are also delighted to be sponsoring Wolves for the fourth season.
Unique features on this kit are the Wolves website address wolves.co.uk featured on the back neck of the shirt, and an official rubberised badge of authenticity just above the bottom hem on the front.
The shorts and socks are also navy with gold and white trim. The shorts also have embroidered Wolves official club crest and Le Coq Sportif logo, and the socks have the word Wolves woven into the top of them. Shirt prices start from GBP 30 for a junior short sleeve shirt, with shorts starting at just £15 and socks at £7. Ladies shirts are GBP 35, whilst a full mini infant kit is just GBP 30 for shirt, shorts and socks. Supporters can pre order from today, for a Friday 8th June launch. It is expected that the new kit will first be worn during Wolves' pre-season campaign.
The team was founded as St. Lukes in 1877 by John Baynton and John Brodie after a group of pupils at St Luke's school in Blakenhall had been presented with a football by their headmaster Harry Barcroft. Two years later, they merged with local cricket and football club The Wanderers, to form Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Wolverhampton Wanderers play in one of the most famous and recognisable strips in British football. The traditional colours are gold shirts and black shorts although in the club's early days the team sported various versions of these colours including old gold and black stripes and old gold and black diagonal halves. The traditional away colour of Wolves is all white.The first badge to be worn on Wolves shirts was the city crest of Wolverhampton which was usually worn on special occasions such as cup finals. In the late 1960s, Wolves introduced their own club badge which consisted of a single leaping wolf that was later increased to three leaping wolves. In 1979, Wolves brought out the now famous wolf-head badge. Its simple and stylised design has made it one of the most recognisable club badges in British football and it still proudly adorns the famous old gold shirts today.
