The Leicester City home jersey combines a blue base with golden accents giving it a classical feel.
For the first time in the club’s history the Leicester City 16-17 home shirt will be sporting the new iconic gold Premier League embellishment that is only reserved for the Champions. In fact, the Leicester 2016-17 home jersey is the first to use the redesigned Premier League winners’ badge placed on the sleeves.
Boasting a traditional yet stylised collar, the classical new Leicester home shirt for 2016-17 presents a bold, geometric jacquard design to the body and sleeves to create an eye catching on pitch statement.
The subtle use of golden accents, specifically the Puma logo on the chest and shoulders of the Leicester 16-17 home jersey, and the textured form stripe and contrasting piping featured on the shirt and shorts showcase the club’s Champion status giving players and fans alike a look to be proud of.
Leicester City midfielder, Andy King said of the new 16-17 home kit:
“Again, PUMA have created a kit which looks fantastic. The piping on the front and back which offers hints of gold looks great and will help us stand out on the pitch.
“We cannot wait to walk out onto the pitch in the shirt at the start of the 2016/17 Premier League season, as we defend our Premier League title.”
