We already showed you a leaked picture a while ago, but today Celtic officially unveiled their new home kit. The new Hoops will go on sale officially from Thursday, August 21, 2008, but supporters can pre-order the kit today.
The kit uses Nike Sphere Dry fabric technology, first used by Nike in national team kits worn in the 2006 World Cup. This technology is designed to enhance player performance by wicking sweat through the material and away from the skin.
The fabric has a three-dimensional design with raised nodes on the underside that lift it away from the players’ bodies to reduce ‘cling’ and allow air to circulate, assisting the body’s own natural evaporation process.
On the inside collar of the shirt, similar to the new gold away kit, are the words: “It’s not the creed nor nationality that counts. It’s the man himself,” a quote from Willie Maley, one of the most iconic figures in the club’s history and words which proudly demonstrate Celtic as a club open to all.
