Partick Thistle and Greaves Sports unveiled the club’s new pink and grey hooped 08/09 Puma away kit – a first for Scottish football – which will debut when worn by the players against Forfar on Tuesday evening.
The strip is the first ever pink jersey in Scottish club football and was chosen by the club and Greaves Sports to help set the Jags apart from their rivals.
European teams such as Benfica, Palermo and Juventus have all worn pink strips in recent years but, Scotland’s Rosebery strip aside, the trend to ‘think pink’ has yet to hit these shores.
That will all change tomorrow when Thistle’s colourful new away top goes on sale at 5pm at Firhill before being worn by the Jags during their League Cup tie at home to Forfar later that evening.
Thistle Manager Ian McCall said : "Partick Thistle fans have never been afraid to stand out from the crowd and this new away kit allows them to do exactly that."
Greaves Sports became Partick Thistle’s official retailer earlier this year and expect the away kit to be as popular as the traditional home jersey, which has been a huge hit with fans since being unveiled in June.
