Perth Glory FC unveiled the club’s new playing strip which for the first time in club history will feature vertical stripes.
The striking design on the front of the playing shirt was selected to coincide with an exciting era at the club in which a new logo has been adopted and the squad revitalised for a full frontal assault on the Hyundai A-League in 2009/10.
Perth Glory’s prominent purple colour has been retained with a solid block on the back of the shirt and the sleeves while the front will feature a mix of purple and white stripes to create an impressive looking shirt.
“We have set out to revitalise the club from top to tail and have scored plenty goals with our new look both on and off the pitch,” Mr Sage said.
“The playing shirt is something different from what we’ve ever had before and that was a deliberate decision to reinforce the new attitude and desire of the club going forward.
“The comments we’ve already received from Reebok and those that have had a sneak peek at the shirt have been extremely positive,” Mr Sage said.
Football Federation Australia has adopted a home and clash strip policy which means Perth Glory will wear the striped ‘home’ shirt during matches at Members Equity Stadium and on road trips where appropriate.
The new look has received the thumbs up from the players with Glory defender Jamie Harnwell keen to give the new look style a run on the pitch.
“I think it’s a great new design, it looks smart and adds to the renewed feeling that we all have at the club,” Harwell said.
The full playing kit will feature the new striped shirt, purple shorts and white socks.
