stoke city 12/13 adidas away football shirt

Stoke City today launched a new away kit for the 2012-13 season which has been specifically designed to mark the Club's 150th anniversary.

Tony Pulis' side will play in the new navy and cardinal colours once worn by the Stoke Ramblers following the formation of the Club back in 1863.

The historic significance of the 2012-13 season is also reflected in a specially-adapted Club badge and the use of the 1863-2013 dateline on the back.

Stoke Ramblers played in similar colours right at the outset, although it was hoops rather than stripes on their shirts back in those early days.

The Club also played in a striped version of the same colours, on two occasions in the 1890s and then again after the reformation as Stoke FC in 1908.

City's Head of Commercial Andrew Billingham commented: "Our 150th anniversary next season is a momentous landmark in the Club's history and it was important therefore that the new kit reflected the fact we will be celebrating this special occasion.

"While our home kit will retain the traditional red and white stripes, the away kit is more of a throwback to those early days of blue and burgundy colours. The creation of the specific 150 years badge and the dateline give it more historical significance.

"We are sure that our supporters will like the idea of being able to purchase a special shirt which marks this anniversary in an appropriate manner."

The adaptation of the badge is notable for '150 years' replacing 1863, while it carries the Club motto Vis Unita Fortior underneath -United Strength Is Stronger.

The badge and the dateline on the back of the neck will also feature on the new home shirt for the 2012-13 season which will be launched at a later date.

Those supporters who order or purchase the new away shirt will be entered into a draw to win the special 150 squad number to mark the anniversary.

Thanks to Stephen, Robb , Andrew, Nathan, Jim and Chris

It's not actually red, it's burgendy just looks red for some reason on the pictures. I brought it yesterday and its burgendy and navy, it's quite smart :-)

So red then.

Oh well, Inter-like kit this season, Barcelona-like kit next season..

They should go for Fenerbahce and go blue and yellow the season after that.

A new season, another new betting company. Won't be surprised if 90% of kits will be sponsored by betting companies in future.


'new' ???? Bet365 are the world's biggest on line sports betting company and own Stoke City.

Peter Coates, the owner of Stoke (who by the way was brought up in Stoke and is a Stoke fan) , set up Bet365 and his family own the company. So therefore the Coates family are sponsoring Stoke City, and are putting more money into their club. So its nothing to do with betting sponsors. Its a family company supporting their local club!

that's a nice kit at 1st i thought it might clash with the home kit but i guess it will be okay.

the badge on the other is crap for starters it is probaly the most boring badge in england so you would have thought they would have done somthing special this year then just put 150 years on it in blue.

Great looking kit, no frills, nice touch with the colour choice but I would have gone with a better crest, like the "coat of arms" style one they had a few seasons back, or the SCFC shield-type one they had in the 1980s.

Sponsor doesn't spoil it, although it'll be very strange looking at a Stoke City kit without "Britannia" on it.

Convienient that the kit is red and blue which means Stoke can exploit their fans and get them buying a third shirt too.

How many times will this be worn?


It will be worn loads!! The kit is not red, it's navy and you can hardly see the red. We won't be having a third kit cus we don't need one and the red is actually a different shade anyway if you look closely at the home kit.

nice kit. similar to the first stoke kit so has historical significance aswell. i wish they had just keft the sponsor off the away kit and made it a little more retro. i would have also liked a better special edition badge because it still looks like it has been designed by a five year old :cry: . that said we could have had nothing for the annaversary at all.

Hmmm...Adidas gave Stoke an Inter-style makeover with the last away kit, now it's a Barca-inspired colour scheme (even though red and blue were Stoke's original colours). Swindon have a new Boca Juniors-style change kit...

If Adidas are handing out away kits based on distinctive colours in world football to the lesser lights of English football, can we expect to see West Brom in AC Milan black and red stripes? Or maybe Bristol City in green/white/red stripes of Fluminense? Just a thought, adidas designers...

When will this god awful team get relegated? I swear, 10 players to park the bus, then Walters running mad. Absolutely shit excuse of 'football', and people expect the EPL to be more regarded than the likes of Spain and Germany. Loool puhlease. Nice kit though. :-)
