The Canadian Premier League and Italian sporting apparel company Macron, the league’s official kit provider, unveiled the HFX Wanderers FC 2020 home kit.
Music is an integral part of Halifax, with live music always playing somewhere in the city every night of the week. The HFX Wanderers FC jersey design is a reflection of music and their deep ties to the community.
Inspired by the famous song “Barrett’s Privateers” by Stan Rogers, a soundwave of the song is boldly incorporated into the fade design on the front of the jersey. The song is a modern folk song in the style of a sea shanty, full of many authentic details of privateering in the late 18th century. It is regarded as one of the Royal Canadian Navy’s unofficial anthems and the unofficial anthem of Atlantic Canada. The sublimated gradient print is inspired by the blue of the Atlantic Ocean to the light Halifax sky. “Together x From Aways” is boldly centred on the jersey’s back.
