The Premier League is NOT Getting a New Shirt Font

Despite the league going main sponsor-less amid Barclays' exit and introducing a totally new visual identity, the numbers on the back of next season's Premier League jerseys will remain unchanged.

This fact has been confirmed both by sportingiD, the company that produces the official numbers and lettering for a number of competitions including the Premier League, and a number of clubs which already started selling their 2016-17 shirts with the old font.

It means that the iconic lion from the previous league logo will remain on the back of the Premier League kits in the 16-17 season and fans won't have to endure a change, possibly for worse.

Are you happy to see that the current Premier League kit font will remain in use for next season? Let us know in the comments below.
