Birmingham City have unveiled their new away kit for the 2008/09 season made by Umbro

Birmingham City have unveiled their new away kit for the 2008/09 season made by Umbro. The new 2008-2009 away kit will be on sale from Sunday 11 May - the day of the final game of the season vs. Blackburn Rovers.

In 1971 Birmingham City adopted the "penguin" strip – royal blue with a broad white central front panel – which lasted five years. Since then they have generally worn plain, nominally royal blue shirts, though the actual shade used got gradually lighter over the years. Shorts have been either blue or white, and socks either blue, white or a combination. The colours of Birmingham's change strip have varied greatly over the years; white or yellow (on their own or with blue or black) and red with white or black have been the most frequently used combinations.

For the current 2007–08 season Birmingham have revived the "penguin" shirt in a more traditional, darker shade of royal blue, with white shorts and blue socks. The away kit consists of a white shirt with blue trim, blue shorts and white socks. This 07/08 season they also have a third kit which is all red with blue and white trim. Next season's strip is again manufactured by Umbro and carries the name of the same sponsors, F&C Investments.

Excellent kit. Actually, it\'s better than the Ajax one on which it\'s obviously modelled.

How can I say...<br />Now, I know which one is the home and which one is the away...

Ajax is that you?

Very tidy kit, indeed if Ajax had have stayed with Umbro no doubt their kit would have been like this, obviously with the red bit on the back.<br /><br />Reminds me a little bit of their away kit from the 99/00 season too.

Its a real gem isn\'t it? Shame it probably won\'t grace the Premier League. It looks like 08-09 is going to be a good year for Umbro designs.

The best umbro kit Ive seen in a long time.Very Ajax-esque,if there is such a word ;-)

If Ajax was still Umbro.....<br />This shirt reminds me Ajax TDK shirts.<br /><br />4/5. I like it very very much.<br /><br />My favourite detail are the SOCKS..<br />with the white diamonds in the red stripe..awesome!

 
  1. fsc

kind of an uglier Ajax...not really original...but what I\'m I gonna do? 4/5 for been extremely nice looking...

 
  1. fsc

it is a great top and really nice

[quote=Spoon man]Looks nice....will look even nicer with championship numbering....[/quote]<br />Very funny.<br /><br />Seriously though, that League numbering/lettering has to be changed. Blech!

looks like ajax, shame they cant play like them. However looks good and better than last years (07/08)

When the Brummies originally wore the \"Penguin\" strip in the 70\'s (Latchford, Francis, et al), they wore a red version of the blue-with-white-panel shirt. <br /><br />This is an homage to that change strip, only reverse colors - white-with-red-panel. <br /><br />Yes, it looks like Ajax, but it is not based on their strip. This is founded in Birmingham\'s own history.

nice kit ..its practically last years home kit reversed with red

 
  1. fsc

they might have given it a wee iron first.

 
  1. fsc

Definitely looks great with championship numbering and coca cola badges.......... <br /><br />Villa are the best <br /><br /> Aston Villa 5 , Birmingham 1

  1. fsc

with that Ajax-esque kit Birmingham is going to be a great team like Ajax ;-)

 
  1. fsc

different to all the other umbro kits of seen this season<br />not bad to be fair =]

 
  1. fsc

different to all the other umbro kits of seen for next season...as in the template<br />not bad to be fair =]

 
  1. fsc

well done umbro, hopefully the hearts kit will mimic this success

 
  1. fsc

Blues had a three panel german flag coloured strip in the 70s. Now that is a classic.<br /><br />West Brom\'s new away strip will be Yellow top with blue trim, navy blue shorts and yellow socks<br /><br />The new home strip will be Blue and White stripes as usual, though the stripes will be wider than this seasons, there is also more white on the sleeves than blue. There is a very small collar, similar to the one that appears on the England away shirt.<br /><br />Away strip official images likely to appear towards end of the month, though samples are in club shop. The reason is that negotiations on a new sponsor for next season have not been finalised. Two betting/gambling firms in the running along with two other multinational firms.

its a sick kit

 
  1. fsc

really nice kit. i like the really light gray lines coming from the houlders to the spine. I\'ll probably buy that than the home kit. But we dont know what the home kit is yet do we.

Man that shirt looks too much like the one of Ajax... can\'t Umbro design something news

It is stolen from Ajax... why would they do something like that? I think the Ajax shirt is much better looking!

 
  1. fsc

And that\'s also why it belongs to the hall of shame.

 
  1. fsc

The Ajax shirt is ugly. <br />This one isnt that bad, because it doesnt have the Ajax-badge.

 
  1. fsc

Ajax kit is ugly.<br /><br />This one is nice, because there isnt a Ajax-badge.

 
  1. fsc

Pish, come up with something original Umbro why don\'t you, maybe if Birmingham had an awesome Youth football system and a legacy of great players, but all I can think of is Trevor Francis (Go on the Forest 1979 Euro Cup). Mehhhhh. And James McFadden could do so much better, should have stuck with Everton big lad, see you in the Championship. Come on You Reds!!!!

 
  1. fsc

I\'m glad to see that on this site there aren\'t as many childish postings as on pitchslap...<br />Most true Ajax fans (seasonticketholders) see this design as a compliment.

 
  1. fsc

Lots of thinking have been put in this design. Its pretty sad to see that they had to copy the whole ajax shirt. Even though this design is simply cheap. I mean like come ooooonn. This is Ajax\' trademark. Don\'t try to get famous by using OUR collers.<br />And everybody who thinks this is a better design then Ajax\'. You should let the doctor check you for any major error your system contains.<br /><br />Dijkman, an obvious Ajax fan from Amsterdam.<br /><br />You how me call such poeple here in Amsterdam? They\'re called FAKERS!!!

 
  1. fsc

It will look good in the championship!!!

 
  1. fsc

Just like the home shirt. no different.

 
  1. fsc

  1. fsc

hi i think that when the new aston villa shirt is released it will be a masterclass touch because it just shows how much effort aston villa put in to be the best team around a not a single fuckin team will be able 2 match us because we are just simply the best and u no it and i agree the new blues away kit is fuckin shit the home looks better if i may say so maself lol back 2 u fuckas !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
