Tottenham Hotspur’s 2019-20 third kit pays tribute to iconic players of the past by bringing back the famous light blue shade synonymous with the talent that helped carve the way for the club’s future success.

The new kit, which will debut later this month when Spurs’ European campaign begins, is light blue from head to toe and features numerous other nods to ’90s jersey culture. An alternating matte/shine jacquard forming a “Spurs” graphic spreads across the front of the shirt, the club crest has an elevated trim and the ’90s vibe is topped up by a Nike Futura logo.

“It’s one of my favorite jerseys for sure, the light blue pops and the retro aesthetic goes down well,” says lifelong Spurs fan and prominent UK rap star AJ Tracey, featured in the campaign imagery. “I can’t wait to wear it to the European games, especially this season.”

The shirt is framed by a dark blue trim on the sleeves and on the classic-’90s button-down collar. The same dark blue details the shorts and crowns the otherwise light blue socks.

“Everyone will see the retro influence; it’s a tribute to the jersey culture of the 90s,” says Tottenham and England forward Harry Kane. “When you see the light blue, you think of those players that paved the way, and I hope this year we can wear it with pride to go all the way.”

The 2019-20 Tottenham Hotspur third kit releases September 4 from nike.com.
