 Stoke City, Are You Columbus Crew In Disguise? New Away Shirt for 2013 14 Season [PHOTO]

UPDATED: Don’t be surprised if you hear MLS fans chanting, “Stoke City, are you Columbus Crew in disguise?” if the Potters wear their new away jerseys at Stoke’s pre-season friendlies in the United States this summer.

Photos have been leaked on the Internet of Stoke’s new away shirt. The black jersey with yellow and white trim look very similar to a Columbus Crew home shirt from the past.

While the design of the shirt isn’t that original, not surprising due to adidas’s preference to work from existing templates, it’s still distinctive enough in the Premier League season next year to be noticeable. And black shirts are still in.

And now here’s official confirmation of Stoke City’s away shirt for 2013-14, which was revealed at the club’s award dinner on May 14, 2013:

    Geez….that looks like hell. Not much more to say.

  2. Guy says:

    Well, if it helps us score goals for Rafa, I’m all for it! :-)

  3. RBP says:

    Same template as the Dynamo, just a terrible shirt.

  4. Marc L says:

    They must have been inspired by their trip TO Columbus last summer. Inspired in a bad way, apparently.

  5. Steve says:

    Er, really. A mishmash of ideas not put together well. The badge isn’t even red … Sort it out Adidas.

  6. Dan says:

    Truely terrible! Not looking forward to seeing the home kit!

  7. Pete says:

    From memory, the Adidas logo & 365 is yellow. We do have the correct badge too.

    Hate Adidas & their templates. No thought goes into their designs.

  8. howard says:

    the other team 5 miles down the road should be wearing that top (port Vale) not the mighty potters bin it

  9. JimmyG says:

    Awful. I thought we had seen the last of black. Can’t understand why the away strip can’t last for more than one season .

  10. Gav says:

    nice colours stoke…black, white and yellow just like PORT VALE FC hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

  11. ricardo mulrain says:

    Time football clubs go back to maintaining one traditional kit. All these fancy three and four kit each season is just a ploy to wrestle money out of the hands of fans who still has to tolerate poor play on the pitch.
