Odd Purple / Lime Bristol City 17-18 Kit Wins 2017-18 EFL Kit Award

Bristol City's purple and lime away kit for the 2017/18 season has been voted the best strip in the EFL this season. In a poll conducted by the EFL on Twitter, City's away offering was voted the best kit in the country, beating Sheffield United's home strip by 52% of the vote to 48%.



Bristol City's 17-18 away kit was made independently by their own in-house manufacturer, Bristol Sport. It is inspired by the jersey the club wore in 1994 when they beat Liverpool at Anfield in an FA Cup replay.

Bristol Sport chief executive Andrew Billingham said: "We're absolutely delighted to have won best overall EFL kit. It further supports the move we made four years ago to take back control of how we design and manufacturer kits and training wear. Credit for the winning design has to go to the feedback from supporters and the vision of the club."



Over 15,000 votes were cast in total and there were a series of stages City's kit had to move through to reach the final.

It is safe to assume that not everyone agrees with the vote conducted by the EFL on Twitter, and there are many other kits in the EFL in the 2017-18 season that would meet the usual requirements for the best kit of the season (check out what all teams will wear in the 2017-18 Championship season in our special Championship kit overview).
