FOOTBALL - Coventry City unveil new home kit inspired by 70's design

COVENTRY City have unveiled their new home kit for the 2022/23 season which features tramlines inspired by their 70’s counterparts.

The home shirt is bespoke to the club who worked closely with Hummel to design an iconic kit which celebrates the identity and history of Coventry City and the city of Coventry.

The club announced the news on the 60th anniversary of the consecration of Coventry Cathedral in 1962 and the tramline includes the pattern from the stained-glass windows of the Cathedral.

Elsewhere, the stained-glass windows are also replicated inside the neck of the shirt, alongside the words ‘In Our Coventry Homes’.

The shirt features a classic round neck collar, designed for comfort and style, while the famous Hummel chevrons feature prominently on the sleeves.

Replica shirts will be available from Infants to 5XL sizes.

Coventry City Chief Executive Dave Boddy said: “We are delighted to unveil our new home kit for the 2022/23 season.

“As well as featuring the popular tramlines from the 1970s, we are proud to also include Coventry Cathedral within the design, as one of the most famous buildings in our City reaches its 60th anniversary.

“After featuring the Phoenix rising from the flames last season, featuring the Cathedral seems appropriate as this was one of the symbols of the City’s reconstruction following World War Two.

“The team at Hummel and staff behind the scenes at Coventry City have worked closely again to create a totally bespoke kit and another superb design, which we hope will prove very popular with Sky Blues supporters.”

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.

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 kit will go on general sale at 9:30am on Thursday, June 30 in the Club Shop at the Coventry Building Society Arena.

Pre-orders are expected to be dispatched in June, with pre-orders scheduled to be with fans prior to the general sale date.
