New Balance Lille 16-17 Home, Away & Third Kits Released

Having only just announced a long-term partnership a few days ago, New Balance and French club LOSC Lille today launched the new home, away and third kits for the upcoming Ligue 1 season.

Lille 16-17 Home Kit

This is the new Lille 2016-2017 home shirt by New Balance Football.

In honor of the club's 70th anniversary, the new LOSC Lille home jersey is white a color that had been used throughout the early years of the club. Drawing inspiration both from the first-ever Lille jersey and those worn in the 1980s, the Lille 2016-17 home kit has a red v across the chest, while New Balance opted for a traditional collar, red with white trim.

The shorts and socks of the new Lille home kit are dark blue, creating a smart and unique design.

Lille 16-17 Away Kit

This is the new Lille away shirt.

Based on the same template as the home shirt, the new Lille away kit offers a look that's more like what we've seen from the club over the last few years. It's red, again features a v-shape on the chest, as well as further navy detailing in the form of the collar and the sleeve cuffs. Shorts and socks are identical to those of the home kit.

Lille 2016-17 Third Kit

This is the New Balance LOSC Lille 16-17 third jersey.

For the third kit, New Balance opted for a much more modern design: it combines a dark blue base with garish green accents. Both the shorts and socks of the new LOSC Lille 16-17 third kit continue this scheme to create an interesting and unique look for the club.
