Nike and Celtic FC unveil third kit for 2014-15 season

Celtic FC will this season play in a new bold and brilliant white third kit.

Celtic played in a white shirt for their first ever game in May 1888, and now this new third shirt pays homage to the club’s founders with a nod to the past, but with a fresh and new look for the future.

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 third kit will be available to purchase in stores and from from July 11.

While this new kit features Nike’s signature design details, it also offers players the very latest in performance innovation, kit technology and environmental sustainability.
