FA CUP Finalists Stoke City will bear a striking resemblance to Inter Milan on their travels . . . following the unveiling of their new away kit for next season.
The new adidas strip which City will wear in the 2011-12 campaign has a blue and black striped shirt most commonly associated with the Italian giants.
It certainly got the seal of approval of central defensive pair Ryan Shawcross and Robert Huth when they showed off the kit for the first time this week.
"Let's hope we can play like Inter Milan too," smiled City's captain Shawcross. "It looks very impressive and I am sure it will be a winner with our fans."
The 2011-12 away kit will hit the Official Club Stores on Saturday ahead of the game at Aston Villa and will be available to order online.
City's Head of Commercial Andrew Billingham said: "This is another big step forward for the Club and I am sure all our supporters going to the away matches at Aston Villa and Blackpool over the next fortnight will want to get their hands on the new shirt.
"This reflects the progress being made by providing the quality and excellence of market-leading products for our playing squad, staff and supporters.
"We have worked closely with our Principal Club Partner Britannia to incorporate their brand into the new look to the shirt and we are delighted with the result."
The new away shirts start at £42.00 for adults and £32.00 for juniors, while there is also a range of away goalkeeper's kit available with the launched product.
