FOOTBALL - Coventry City unveil new third kit

COVENTRY City have unveiled their new third kit for the 2023/24 season with the strip to be worn for the first time against Queens Park Rangers this weekend.

The kit reveal comes as part of Hummel’s 100 year anniversary celebrations with the shirt a unique version of the manufacturers’ iconic Denmark 1986 design.

And the new version mimics the style of shirt Coventry wore in the late 1980’s and the League One promotion season of 2019/20.

The green and black shirt represents a twist on Coventry’s previous styles.

The club have previously worn the two colours in the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s early 2010’s and most recently in 2019/20.

And the shirt features the famous castle, elephant and football crest, used on strips in the 60’s and 70’s, on the inside neck.

Images of City greats George Curtis, Tommy Hutchison and Mick Coop are also on the shirt.

The green and black shirt is accompanied by black shorts and black socks with a yellow goalkeeper strip.
