Blackburn’s home kit for the 2013-14 season will be available tomorrow. The new Blackburn home shirt, designed by Nike, is one of the best Rovers shirts I’ve seen in years. The design of it is spectacular.
According to the club website:
“In acknowledgement of the Football League’s 125th anniversary celebrations – and Rovers’ status as one of the 12 founder member clubs – Nike have reverted back to the original orientation of the famous blue-and-white halves, which was the predominant form of the shirt until 1942.
“This season also marks the 100-year anniversary of Rovers’ First Division title success in 1913-14.”
Blackburn’s home shirt typically has the blue half on the player’s left side of his chest, over his heart. But the original orientation is reversed. Personally, I like this new shirt design better because it makes the Blackburn crest pop more.
What are your thoughts about Blackburn’s new home shirt for next season?
