Coventry City are delighted to unveil the 2022/23 away kit!
The new Hummel away kit will be available to pre-order from 4pm on Thursday 30th June at www.ccfcstore.com
The new away shirt is completely bespoke to Coventry City, after the Club has worked closely with Hummel on another unique and iconic kit design.
This season’s away kit is based on the away shirt of the 1995/96 Premier League season, seeing a return of a purple striped shirt with thin yellow lines.
The purple stripes are created using three different bespoke remakes of stained-glass panels from City’s iconic Cathedral, which celebrates 60 years since its consecration this year.
The famous Hummel chevrons are also in yellow on each sleeve, while, unlike the 90s shirt, there is a round neck collar in dark purple and yellow.
The shorts are also dark purple with Hummel chevrons on the side, while socks are light purple with yellow chevrons and a dark purple trim.
Inside the neck, the words ‘You Want A Cathedral’ are printed – words from the song ‘In Our Coventry Homes’, often sung by Sky Blues supporters.
Coventry City’s sponsor BoyleSports is on the front of the shirt too and is in keeping with the overall design of the kit. The BoyleSports logo will be on all retail shirts, except for Junior and Infant sizes.
Sponsors XL Motors and G&R Scaffolding also features on the kits.
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.
The new away kit will be available to pre-order from 4pm on Thursday 30th June at www.ccfcstore.com – fans who pre-order will receive the kit ahead of general sale.
The kit will go on General Sale on 21st July at 9:30am in the Club Shop at the Coventry Building Society Arena.
