Coventry City are delighted to reveal the new third kit for the 2022/23 season!
The new kit is available to purchase now online at ccfcstore.com, as well as in the Club Shop at the Coventry Building Society Arena and West Orchards Shopping Centre (from 9:30am and 10am respectively).
The shirt is completely bespoke to Coventry City, after the Club has worked closely with Hummel on another iconic kit design which once more celebrates the identity and history of Coventry City and the City of Coventry.
Like the home and away shirts, the kit features another iconic aspect of the world-famous Coventry Cathedral, which is celebrating its 60th anniversary of its consecration this year.
The third kit is in homage to the Baptistery Window at the Cathedral. Designed by John Piper, with the glassmaker Patrick Reyntiens, the window contains 198 brightly coloured glass panels and measures 26 metres high.
The new third kit replicates the style of the window on a black background, creating an eye-catching design which again is proudly and uniquely a Coventry City kit.
Inside the back of the shirt are the words ‘We’ve Got One To Spare’ – both in reference to the song sung by Sky Blues supporters about the City’s Cathedrals and this kit also being the Third Kit.
The shirt features a classic round neck collar, designed for comfort and style, while the famous Hummel chevrons feature prominently on the sleeves.
Coventry City’s sponsor BoyleSports is on the front of the shirt too and will be on all retail shirts, except for Junior and Infant sizes.
Replica shirts will again be available from Infants to 5XL sizes.
Coventry City’s kits use hummel’s ECO8 technology, meaning each shirt is manufactured from high-performing polyester produced from up to eight recycled plastic bottles. This helps both the Sky Blues and Hummel to reduce our carbon footprint and raise sustainability awareness amongst our fans.
The kits also feature hummel’s ZEROH2O dry-dye technology, a ground-breaking process that ensures there is zero water consumption, zero wastewater and a 50 per cent reduction in energy consumption during the dying phase of production.
Sponsors XL Motors and G&R Scaffolding also features on the kits, while the black shorts and socks are also available to purchase - again featuring the famous Hummel chevrons in a classic style.
The new kit is available to purchase now online at ccfcstore.com, as well as in the Club Shop at the Coventry Building Society Arena and West Orchards Shopping Centre.
