Swindon Town Football Club fans can now vote for their choice of home and away kits for next season

Swindon Town Football Club fans can now vote for their choice of home and away kits for next season. Lotto are the official kit suppliers for the 2008/09 season after signing a two-year agreement in the summer of 2007. There will of course be a new main sponsor from the start of the 2008/09 season following the end to the Kingswood main sponsorship agreement. Fans can register their vote by email, by sending an email to with their choices in the subject line. e.g. HOME A, AWAY A

Historically Swindon Town have played their home games in variations on the red and white theme, wearing a red shirt with white collars and white shorts for much of their history. The kit worn during the 1985-86 Division Four Champions season consisted of a red shirt with white pinstripes, white shorts and red socks.

Originally playing in Black and White with the addition of Blue sash for away games, the club changed to Black and Red quarters on entry to the Southern League in 1894. The club changed again in 1897 with the Swindon Advertiser reporting:

"The new colours of the Swindon Town F.C. are to be green shirts, with white sleeves. Good-bye to the old well known red and black."

Following the club being re-branded in 1991, green elements were re-introduced onto the Home Strip and badge to represent the team's short-lived kit from the turn of the century. These were removed in 2007.

Away kit

The club's away kits have only begun to change since the 1990s and the advent of the lucrative replica kit market. Swindon's original away kit (that was entirely separate to the home kit) consisted of an all-blue strip, this was not used for the club's 1969 League Cup Final victory where they elected to wear an all-white strip.

For a period in the 1980s the club changed their away kit to white shirts and black shorts and introduced a new third kit of yellow shirts and blue shorts. The club alternated between these two schemes as its away kit for the 1980s.

When the club re-branded in the 1991 close season, it introduced a new away strip; the white and green "potato print" shirt with dark blue shorts, this remained in use until its replacement in 1993 with another yellow and blue strip, integrating the new colour scheme by adding a green collar.

A special third kit was added for the 1996–97 season and was coloured "Petrol green" in honour of the then sponsors Castrol.

Swindon wore black and gold striped away shirts for the 2003–04 season with an all-white third kit, following this with variants on the blue theme until returning to all-white in 2007

Swindon Town Football Club fans can now vote for their choice of home and away kits for next season. Lotto are the official kit suppliers for the 2008/09 season after signing a two-year agreement in the summer of 2007.
