As a homage to the history of the club, Celtic will play in a new third kit with a contemporary color and design.
The third shirt is vivid yellow with a series of thin black hoops, which double in size at their half-way point from direction to creat an overall quartered effect.
The sleeves are vivid yellow and the collar is a black crew neck.
The Nike manufactured kit is inspired by a former Celtic away kit, first worn in the 1926/27 season, which featured quarters of solid green and white.
The third kit shorts are black with a yellow stripe on the back near the bottom of each leg. The socks are yellow with a black band at the top and two black hoops with CFC featured in the center on the back of each half.
The new kit is made from recycled polyester.
The Dri-FIT technology ensures the active regulation of the players’ body temperatures on the pitch to keep them dry and cool. Temperature regulation is helped by ventilation zones, consisting of hundreds of tiny laser cut holes from the under arms to the waistband, allowing air to circulate to keep players dry, cool and comfortable.
To complement the new match day kit, Nike will launch a unique Celtic line of training and lifestyle clothing for both players and fans to wear on and off the pitch.
The kit and the extended line is available for pre-order from May 26, 2011 and it will be available in stores from June 16, 2011.
