New Premiership Shirt Lettering/Numbering

premier league logo New Premiership Shirt Lettering/NumberingStarting with the 2007/2008 season, the Premier League will unveil a new style of numbering and lettering for the jerseys of Premiership clubs.

The new Premier League lettering will appear more modern in design and will be easier to read. The Premiership jerseys will also feature numbers that are in the same design as well as a new Premier League badge design.

This is the first change to the design of the lettering/numbering templates in more than a decade.

We haven’t seen what the new design looks like yet, but it’s possible that it may resemble the font used in the new Premier League logo (see above).

    Interesting, if your source is legit.

    Although I never buy shirts with numbers or names written on any more (grew out of that at the age of 12) :P


  2. Charlie says:

    I put my name and number on all my jerseys. That way I don’t have to worry about having a shirt with a player who gets traded two weeks after I bought it. *lol*

  3. Mike says:

    I can understand somewhat Charlie’s opinion, though I would always pick a player who would be less likely to move.

    I don’t think age makes any difference, Dan.

  4. Try finding a player who will stay if you go down!
