Birmingham City New 2010-11 Home Kit: Vote Now

 Birmingham City New 2010 11 Home Kit: Vote Now

Birmingham City has made the smart move to allow its supporters to choose which football kit the club should wear for the 2010-11 season. Too many times, football clubs make the decision without much or any input from supporters and what ends up being released is an abomination.

The decision to allow Birmingham City supporters to pick the home kit for the 2010-2011 season results from new owners Carson Yeung’s pledge to work more closely with supporters.

Interestingly, Birmingham City has dropped Umbro as it’s official kit supplier for next season and have replaced them with a Chinese company named Xtep. The deal is worth £7.8 to Birmingham City over the next five seasons and it’s believed to be the first time a Premier League kit has worn a a kit made by a Chinese company.

Browse through the four different choices and decide which one you think looks best:

  1. Dan says:

    Prefer A, but aside from the last kit, any of them would look excellent.

  2. Bishopville Red says:

    I prefer the last two first kits (“Brum Ajax”, current) to any of these options.

    Of these, kit A is the best. I’m not a fan of middle crests. The last option is too MUFC wannabe.

  3. vermaelen5 says:

    Kit C is the best.

  4. CTBlues says:

    I like Kit C the most but the crest needs to be put on left side not the middle.

  5. What about the kit that Almunia is wearing, he was playing for Birmingham that day wasn’t he?

  6. Derek says:

    My guess is that it’s a response to the “Chelski” taunts for their Russian ownership. Obviously it IS intended as an insult but frankly it’s pretty absurd for any EPL team to mock another for reliance on foreign dollars or players. I remember when the Nintendo group bought the Mariners and there was much handwringing these foreign usurpers. MLB actually forced them to reduce their share to 49%. That rule is now seen as basically archaic and racist in our areas. In fact we’re pretty pleased with how our relationship with Japan has gone.

    Anyway, to the Chelsea supporters I’d say grow-up. To those who are offended I’d remind them that at least they’re not screaming racist taunts that seem to be the norm in other clubs. And finally, let’s hope we get to hear that chant against England this summer! :)

  7. Jeremy says:

    Brilliant idea. If Arsenal supporters were given this chance I doubt we’d have any of our three kits for this year, or at least we’d have white sleeves again. Kudos to Birmingham.

  8. Jimeh says:

    Kit D is quite a new one. But B is more retro and I think more of the youth would agree.

  9. tom daniels says:

    kit b becuse it is plain blue and has a pointed collar and to be fare i reckon it would suit the blues more

  10. goodfella says:

    kit “D” is the best thay are all nice. tho im not keen on the crest in the mid !!!!!

  11. tommm :) says:

    pleasee D……… by far the bestt i dont like the crest in the middle looks dumbb

  12. Adam BCFC Barton says:

    I like kit C and Kit D lets hope the New kit brings us good luck :) Champions league here e come lol

  13. It’s out of kit C or kit D , A and B is just plain , but i would perfer to wear kit D
