Swansea City Home Shirt for 2011-12 Season: Leaked Photo

swansea city home shirt1 Swansea City Home Shirt for 2011 12 Season: Leaked Photo

A photo has been leaked on the Internet showing a blurred image of what Swansea City’s home shirt for the 2011-12 Premier League season will look like.

The Swans, who are scheduled to officially reveal their shirt design on Saturday, are the first Welsh team to play in the Premier League. During the last time they played in the top flight, in the early 80s, they wore an Adidas kit. A lot has changed since then, but this is their first Adidas kit since then.

The new shirt is from Adidas’s template with black piping on the side of the shirt, while the iconic three Adidas stripes run down the sleeve.

While the quality of the photo doesn’t do the shirt a whole lot of justice, I’m sure the official photos released this weekend will give us a better view of what the shirt looks like. It’s simple and clean. My only disappointment is that Adidas has stuck to their template. I would have loved for them to do something a little different.

What do you think of the new shirt design? Share your opinion in the comments section below. And don’t forget, for the largest selection of Premier League shirts for all 20 clubs, visit theĀ EPL Talk Shop.
