At a fan event on December 14th, Gol & FC Gifu released the new kits that the team will be wearing next year, and they are quite a departure from this year!
From the top: home shirt, away shirt, home GK, away GK
As you can see, it is quite a departure from the stripes of this year. This one has more of a retro x samurai feel to it. The collar looks really cool, and it is something you don’t see a lot of these days. Apparently Ruy Ramos had some input into the design discussion as well, and they have tried to get a “samurai” influence into the shirt with the pattern under the sleeve & the print on the front of the jersey. The end result is that I think Gol have come up with a super design!
And, if you want a blurb to describe the new kit, how about:
- “The spirit of Samurai, Japan’s ancient warriors, has been captured in FC Gifu’s new 2015 uniform. The collar gives it a classic retro look, while samurai hints can be found under the sleeves and in the subtle yet distinctive pattern on the front. Summon up your samurai spirit and join FC Gifu’s band of warriors as they look to climb to the top of J2.”
Pretty evocative, right? I should get in corporate PR……
