Valenciennes unveiled their new 08/09 home, away and 3rd kits. The Valenciennes Football Club revives the scapular tradition for this new 2008/2009 jersey designed by Italian manufacturer Diadora.

For the first time since the final of the France Cup in 1951, VA wear the famous red jersey and white scapular (latin Scapula: is a length of cloth suspended both front and back from the shoulders of the wearer, that varies in shape, colour, size and style depending on the use to which it is being put) accompanied VA in its "great years" (from the 50's to 60's ) .

Valenciennes FC was founded in 1913 by a group of young men, notably Mssrs Colson, Joly and Bouly. With the Great War in progress, the club made little impact at first. However, in 1916 another group of sportsmen made contact with the directors of the club with a view to creating the "Union Sportive Valenciennes-Anzin" (Valenciennes-Anzin Sports Union, known by its French initials USVA) under which name they then participated in the Escaut Département championships
