Tottenham Hotspur Home, Away And Third Football Kits For 09/10 Season: Official Photos

After a ton of suspense, hundreds of blog posts and plenty of heated debates over whether the photographs leaked a few weeks ago were really the new Tottenham Hotspur football kits or not, we now know the truth after Tottenham Hotspur officially revealed their new kits for the 2009-2010 season today.

The new football kits for Tottenham Hotspur are bound to elicit a lot of anger and controversy among Spurs fans since they deviate from their traditional colours. There’s a big reason why Tottenham’s nickname is the Lilywhites.

Drumroll, please. Here are the new kits in all their glory designed and manufactured by Puma:

First, the new Tottenham Hotspur home kit modeled by Jonathan Woodgate. The new home kit will first be worn on the club’s return to Wembley Stadium against FC Barcelona in the Wembley Cup on July 24.

And here’s the new Tottenham away kit as shown by Luka Modric. The blue away kit will be worn for the first time at White Hart Lane in the pre season friendly against Olympiakos on August 9.

And, lastly, here’s the new Tottenham third kit for the 2009/10 season, modeled by Jermain Defoe. Spurs’s yellow third strip will be worn for the first time in the match against Celtic on July 26 at Wembley.

The dimensions of the new football shirts pictured above are too small to see all of the detail, so here’s a close-up of the new Tottenham home shirt for the 09-10 season that was captured from the official kit website.

The release of the new shirts for Spurs coincides with the launch of a microsite, which features a state-of-the-art website with personalised wallpapers, 360 degree views of the shirts and videos featuring Spurs freestyler Billy Wingrove.

The Spurs Megastore on Tottenham High Road will exclusively open at one minute past midnight (Thursday night, Friday morning) on July 24 for the official in store launch of the home and third kits. The away kit will be launched in store on August 8.

The logo of the Club’s sponsor MANSION will appear on all kit and will feature Mandarin Chinese script on the away and the third kit.

Paul Barber, Executive Director, Tottenham Hotspur said: “We are privileged to have a great heritage and tradition at Tottenham Hotspur and the new range of kit pays homage to the three key Club colours used in previous kit throughout the Club’s history.”

I’ll let you, the Spurs supporters and the readers, form your own opinions regarding whether you like the shirts or not. Feel free to click the comments link below to share your opinion.
