All-New 2017-18 Premier League Kit Numbers Font Revealed

From the start of next season, Premier League clubs will wear shirts adorned with a new set of names and numbers. The new Premier League font, which was designed in collaboration with Official Partner Sporting iD, features a modern and vibrant design. The design aligns with the Premier League's visual identity and includes the new logo, which has been for the start of the 2016-17 season.

Here is the new Premier League font.

The new Premier League font is available in five colorways: white with black details and black, navy, red, and yellow; all with white details. It is the first change for 10 years to the names and numbers used in the Premier League. The only previous style was the original set, introduced under license for all clubs, for the start of the 1997-98 campaign.

As part of the process the Premier League surveyed more than 1,500 fans on six proposed designs and enlisted the help of Premier League commentator Peter Drury to test the visibility of the new design during live testing at Watford FC.
