Special Garnet Bordeaux 15-16 Kit Revealed

French Ligue 1 club Girondins Bordeaux today released a special kit to avoid a kit clash in the Ligue 1 match against Angers on Sunday.

Girondins Bordeaux already revealed three different kits for the 2015-16 season. However, as both the home and third kits are mainly navy and the away kit is mainly white, the LFP (Ligue de Football Professionnel) refused all of the three Girondins Bordeaux Jerseys for Sunday's match as they would not provide "enough contrast to Anger's black and white home kit". Therefore, the club was forced to create yet another kit for the 2015-16 season.

This is the new burgundy Bordeaux 15-16 Shirt.

Based on the standard burgundy and white Puma Pitch 15-16 Teamwear Jersey, the new Girondins Bordeaux 2015-2016 Special Shirt features a simplistic design that includes a v-collar and a white stripe on the sleeves.

Most remarkably, the white shorts of the new Girondins Bordeaux 2015-16 Special Kit boast a monochromatic red Bordeaux logo, while the socks will be also white and navy while featuring the lettering Bordeaux.

The new Girondins Bordeaux 2015-2016 'Grenat' Kit will not be available to purchase but is set to become a rare collector's item.
