Reading Home and Away Shirts For 2012-13 Season [PHOTO]

It’s a welcome return to see Reading back in the Premier League. And today they unveiled the new kits they’ll be playing in during this upcoming season.

Designed by Puma, Reading’s new home shirt features the traditional blue and white hoops. Reading’s team crest is centered on the front of the shirt, which is a nice touch. Puma’s logo, meanwhile, is featured on the right shoulder in red and white. It makes the shirt look lopsided, but the red breaks up the blue and white design. The only feature I don’t like is the blue sleeves. I would have preferred to see the blue and white hoops continued there.

Here’s the away shirt:

As you can see from the above photo, the design of the away shirt is different than the home. There’s not too much to say about it other than it’s bright, features a v-neck collar and will certainly be noticeable when worn by players on the pitch. It’s not a winner, not a loser.

    As a Reading fan, our home kit isn’t what many I and Reading fans wanted, or expected, to see. The hoops are too broad, so it looks like a QPR kit. However, I’m happy to see the hoops go all the away around the kit. The red stripe on the top of the kit doesn’t fit in with the kit, if it was blue then maybe it would. The blue sleeves don’t really worry me, but I know other fans don’t like it. The away kit, I’m happy with. It’s a simple design and it’s a shame we couldn’t have a home kit as good as that. It’s got a good response from Reading fans, but the home kit has had mixed reviews.

      Their average home attendance last time Reading was in the Premier League was 23,511. The capacity of their ground is 24,000.
