Under Armour Southampton 16-17 Kits Released

Southampton today launched its new 16-17 kits, the first made by new Southampton jersey supplier Under Armour. Introducing modern designs, the new Under Armour Southampton 2016-17 home and away shirts are already available to pre-order.

“We’re proud to introduce the latest edition of our iconic red and white stripes, as well as our all-new away kit for the upcoming Premier League season, where we will look to continue our growth and go even better than the record points tally we achieved last season,” said Saints chairman Ralph Krueger.

Southampton 16-17 Home Kit

This is the new Southampton 2016-17 home jersey by Under Armour.

The new Southampton 2016-2017 kit features the club's traditional red and white stripes on the front, while a white panel is present towards the top surrounding the Under Armour and Southampton FC logos. Southampton's club motto 'We march on' is printed on the back of the neck of the Southampton 16-17 home shirt. The sleeves are solid red with black and white cuffs.

Last but not least, the back of the Southampton 16-17 home shirt continues the striping seen on the front, confirming that the Premier League's new 'striped back' rule is not happening for at least another year.

Southampton FC explained the unusual striping on the front of the Southampton 2016-17 jersey the following way: "The stripes appear in blocks of five to represent Southampton’s five core brand values." Apparently, this style is replicated in the piping on the shorts of the Southampton 2016-2017 home kit.

Black shorts and hooped socks complete the modern look of the Southampton 16-17 home kit.
