Sunderland unveiled the club's home kit made by Umbro for the 2009-10 season.
The v-neck shirt, which of course features the traditional red and white stripes, will be on sale in club stores from 6pm on Wednesday May 20th.
The design features red panels on the arm and shoulder area and the Sunderland badge is housed within a shield, enabling a clean finish to the inside of the shirt.
Additional innovative club-related elements also feature on the shirt such as a subtle embossed crest detail on the chest, an inner back neck transfer detailing the lifespan of the shirt and the Black Cat logo on the back collar area. The shirt utlises a lightweight performance polyester fabric featuring Umbro's Climate Control technology, which enhances the movement of moisture away from the body.
The shorts, in a lightweight, durable woven fabric, are black with red side panels and this season sees a return to black socks, with contrast red turnover and striping detail to complete the clean visual aesthetic of the new kit.
The logos of official club sponsor Boylesports and official kit supplier Umbro also feature on the design.
Defender Anton Ferdinand recently modelled the new kit and liked what he saw: "It's a great design and very comfortable to wear. I especially like the embossed crest design which looks really smart."
Sunderland AFC Marketing and Commercial Director Lesley Callaghan added: " We hope that fans will like the new design which includes a range of special features and by buying direct from SAFC they can be confident that they are continuing to invest in the Clubs' future."
