Turkish club Galatasaray have unveiled their new home shirt for the 2013-14 season, and it’s a winner.

Familiar faces such as Didier Drogba, Wesley Sneijder, Felipe Melo, Hamit Altintop, and Johan Elmander will be wearing the new shirt for Galatasaray next season. Designed by Nike, the two-tone colored shirt features a classy asymmetrical design.

Galatasaray wore the new home shirt for their last game of the 2012-13 season, which was one of the most successful seasons in the club’s history.

According to Nike,

“Nike has created the ultimate half-and-half home kit for Galatasaray. The body and sleeves are in the traditional design of red and yellow halves, but for the first time the cuffs and the crew neck collar are also divided equally in these distinctive Galatasaray colors.

“The new Galatasaray kit is inspired by similar designs worn in the 1950s and 1960s by Metin Oktay, one of the club’s greatest players hailed by fans as the ‘uncrowned king.’ The kit also reflects the club’s status as the charismatic avant-gardes of European football, who seek to be both stylish and innovative on and off the pitch.

“Inside the neck of the shirt is a woven red label featuring a club symbol representing Galatasaray’s entire sporting club beyond just football. The new home shorts are white with a thin yellow stripe along the side. The socks are red with a thin yellow band at the top and on the back is a yellow block to give the players greater visual acuity on the pitch.”
