Sevilla 2010/2011 Kits RevealedBy: Joshua | July 13th, 2010
Finally, Sevilla unveiled their kits for the upcoming season on Monday. While there are many new features, most of the kits are what you would expect from a Sevilla kit, but the third kit…whoa!
Turquoise and yellow I was not expecting. I am actually really fond of the home and away kits this year. The home kit is generally the same design as last year’s kit, except the back has the horizontal red stripe that peaks just below the center of the name and a diagonal stripe through the area with the numbers. Look closer to see that these stripes work together to form an outline of the shield, which contains all of the monuments on the back of the shirt. It is a nice design which I think ties in well with the red stripe seen on the front of the kit. It also ties in well with the theme of this year’s kits—unity.
If you look closely, you can see that what appear to be stripes throughout the white and red fabric is actually small monument patterns worked into the threads of the kits. Sevilla’s official website has this to say regarding these patterns:
The shirts, as is customary in recent seasons, convey a clear message of openness. Last year, the shirts bore the names of the towns of Sevilla, Andalusia, and Spain, this time containing the main monuments of the 52 provincial capitals in the nation. This will reassure Sevilla as a national reality open to all kinds of support, combined with a classic battle cry in the last five years that has resulted in victory: “We are Sevilla, we are champions.”
Overall, I like the kits. The home and away kits look fabulous, and the third kits is something I could grow into. I mean it could be much worse than turquoise and yellow, so I will be thankful for that. What do you guys think? Good and bad opinions are more than welcome!
