New Balance launch new Porto kit for 2020/21 season
The release is part of the brand’s ‘Porto Nation’ campaign in recognition of the city
FC Porto's hotly anticipated new kit for the upcoming 2020/21 season has been released by New Balance. The new design for the Portuguese giants combines simplicity and ultra-modern technology to create this vibrant and stunning number.
Inspired by the passionate sea of blue that arises when the fans gather, the jersey features the legendary Porto stripes in blue and white. Accent details are added in a daring yellow chrome shade.
The home strip also incorporates a v-neck insert and integrated woven Porto neck tab. Another discoverable detail is an internal badge bearing the words “Nação Porto”- visible only on the inside.
Developed using innovative NB Dry technology, to help keep players fresh and dry from the first to final whistle. A jacquard ventilation system is included to promote optimum comfort on the jersey.
Porto stars Moussa Marega, Alex Telles and Otavio can be seen modelling the new jersey here.
The new design is a move away from the round neck, four stripe design of this season's kit. The yellow sponsor also adds an extra eye-catching feature to an already popping jersey.
FC Porto Captain, Danilo Pereira said, “We have the best fans in the world, united by the blue and white of the city. I like the special detail in the kit and I know it will get a great reaction from the fans”.
General Manager of New Balance Football, Kenny McCallum said: “It’s always a proud moment working on an iconic design such as the bold stripes of FC Porto. This is a truly modern kit that blends innovation and performance with the heritage and proud traditions of the Club”
The full range of New Balance FC Porto 2020/21 Home Kit products will be available at www.newbalance.com/football (US residents) and www.newbalance.co.uk/football (UK residents) and in New Balance stores worldwide from 4 July.
