Nike Unveils Brand New Alternate Jerseys for Celtic FC
Scottish league Champions Celtic FC are getting a brand new alternative jersey from Nike for the 2014-15 season. Celtic wore a white kit for its first-ever game back in 1888—the team's new all-white look is a nod to that heritage. More, from Nike:
The shirt boasts a green, white and gold chest band, a modern interpretation of the Irish tricolor, to celebrate the club’s origins, having been founded in 1887 by Irish Marist priest Brother Walfrid.
The shirt also features a constructed V-neck collar with a gold band inside the neck, and green cuffs on the sleeves.
Inside the back of the neck is a green and white pennant tab reflecting Celtic’s famous hoops from their home shirt with the proud statement: "A club like no other."
The new third shorts are white with a thin green stripe along each side, while the socks are white with a green band at the top, and a wide tonal stripe of chevrons on the back.
The new alternates will be available for purchase at Nike.com starting July 11.
