York City today unveiled new home and away kits ahead of the Minstermen’s 2014-15 Sky Bet League Two campaign.
Manufactured by sports giant Nike, City’s home strip will stay true to the club’s traditional colours with a red shirt, white shorts and red socks.
The club’s new away strip has a sky blue and white shirt, with matching blue shorts and socks.
The City players will don the new home kit, which has a granddad-shirt style collar, this Saturday, when Nigel Worthington’s men take on Sheffield Wednesday in the club’s first pre-season friendly.
The match kicks-off at Bootham Crescent at 3pm, and prior to kick off the new home kit will go on sale for the first time in the Club Shop. The shop will be open on matchday from 11am until 7pm. The home kits will also be on sale in the shop during the club’s Family Fun Day on Sunday, which runs from 11am to 3pm.
While the City players will be wearing new kits for the new season, some important elements of both the home and away strips will remain the same.
The club can announce benenden health, the UK’s most trusted healthcare provider, has renewed its agreement to be the club’s main sponsor for the new campaign.
In a further boost for the Minstermen, Synergy Cleaning has also agreed to stay on board as the club’s back of shirt sponsor.
And in another coup for the club, Helmsley Computers has agreed to take over as the club’s back of short sponsors.
Sophie Hicks, York City’s Communications & Community Director, said: "These are really exciting times at York City as the club looks to maintain the momentum from last season’s Play-Off push.
"This is really the first time Nigel Worthington has been able to properly assemble his own squad of players, and with eight new players in the squad it feels appropriate to start the season in a new kit.
"We are so pleased benenden health and Synergy Cleaning have renewed their relationships with us. They are both fantastic companies that share our vision and we are proud to be associated with them and to carry their names on our shirts.
"We are also really pleased to have the support of Helmsley Computers as our new back of shorts sponsor. We are delighted to welcome them to the York City family for what we are sure is going to be an exciting season."
