After Canterbury's successful away debut in the 2007/08 season, Canterbury and Portsmouth unveiled this brand new replica away shirt for the 2008-2009 season. This new shirt is ideal for the die hard fan supporting Pompey up and down the country! Portsmouth reached the FA Cup final for the first time since 1939 in 2008. It is exciting times to follow Pompey at the moment and with players such as Defoe and Kranjcar, the only way is up for Harry's boys!
The 100% white polyester shirt manufactured by Canterbury is a design with azzuri blue shoulders. At approximately 159 grams the shirt is very lightweight and comfortable. With the added unique feature of mesh side panels it allows extra ventilation. The wicking finish of the shirt utilises the quick dry properties. The 'OKI' shirt sponsor sits centrally below the v-neck collar with the Canterbury logo on the right chest and the brand new Pompey crest to the left.
Pompey fans have been looking skywards this morning as a giant shirt is being flown around the city. A helicopter trailing a 184 feet by 131 feet Portsmouth shirt courtesy of the club's sponsor OKI Printing Solutions is being pulled across the city's sky.
To celebrate both its 110th anniversary and its first appearance in an FA Cup Final since the Second World War, Portsmouth Football Club has organised the fly-past for this morning. The shirt passed by some of its most iconic landmarks including Spinnaker Tower, the Historic Dockyard, Port Solent and the club's Fratton Park Stadium.
