Middlesbrough’s kit manufacturer Errea have revealed that the club’s new 08/09 home and away shirts are resistant to water and other liquids thanks to unique technology that utilises silver and titanium in the shirt fabric.

Errea’s marketing manager Fabrizio Taddei believes supporters will be amazed by the technology too.

“Middlesbrough are the first and only football club in the world to have utilized this unique material in a football shirt,” said Fabrizio.

“The new shirts are not only fully waterproof but are also resistant to other liquids,” he continued.

Errea are at the forefront of incorporating new scientific breakthroughs into the manufacture of sportswear and utilised ‘nanotechnology’ to make the water-resistant nature of Boro’s new shirts possible.

Nanotechnology is an emerging science which involves working with matter on an ultra-small scale, using individual atoms and molecules.

Fabrizio explains: “Whereas other clothing is often made waterproof through a coating process, tiny particles of titanium and silver have been woven into the yarn of Boro’s new shirts to create a unique fabric.

“We are confident that the new technologies utilised in the manufacturing of the shirts will be appreciated by the players and the supporters.”

I\'ve always wondered if this would be possible. Great. But it won\'t stop Boro bringing out 2 new kits every season.

How do you wash it then ?

Very appropriate considering the crappy weather in the north east. Do does the water sit on it like its been coated with wax? Why has errea come up with this technology and not nike / adidas etc. I reckon this is a marketing campaign to sell more shirts, i doubt it fully works.

The kit is rather impressive! I would love to see other teams to get water-proof, and even would love it if my sunday league team have waterproof kit especially in winter where it pour with rain all the time lol.

Guys, it\'s been a few months since you all commented on this, but the shirt really works and it works well.<br /><br />I have one in our showroom and I didn\'t believe how good it would be... it\'s called the Errea Huron and its less than 30 quid so can\'t ask for much more!<br /><br />I think I\'m gonna get one myself now... sold by the tech...<br /><br />btw silver and titanium are generally hypo allergenic and the shirts are Oeko-Tek Standard 100 certified which means they have no carcinogenic, allergenic, irritant or toxic materials. I believe its the first certified shirt to meet this standard...<br /><br />and although I haven\'t worn the shirt myself yet I do read it is still breathable - in fact on footballshirtculture.com itself:<br /><br />\"The fabric turns waterproof although it conserves high air and steam permeability characteristics thanks to lower values of the superficial tension.
