Southampton Home Shirt for 2013-14 Season: Leaked [PHOTO]

Bad news for Southampton supporters and English football traditionalists. After the outcry from Saints supporters last year that the club decided to ditch their traditional red and white stripes in favor of a red shirt, Southampton Football Club have yet again decided to ignore the supporters of their club.

The leaked photo of Southampton’s home shirt for next season is bereft of red and white stripes. Instead, adidas and Southampton have selected a shirt straight out of adidas’s template. As a result, Southampton’s new home shirt for next season looks like Spain and nothing like the traditional Southampton shirts that have been loved by many.

In the shirt pictured above, no sponsor is included because Southampton’s shirt sponsor dropped out at the last minute. Southampton’s club shop will iron on the sponsor name once a new sponsor is finalized.

Southampton have worn red and white striped jerseys since 1896. This will be the second year in a row that the club has thumbed up its noses at their supporters.

Meanwhile, a Facebook group named Save Our Stripes has been formed for like-minded fans.

    Oh come on guys… It’s another fake picture
    Look at the guess for the 2013/14 Chelski top… apparently “leaked” on the Internet, nothing like the real thing… apart from blue.
    Also, please “MrGaffer” where does it say aap3 have pulled out of their contract?

    I like it, and it’ll look great as I use them in fifa 14 career mode. Apparently I’m in the minority.

    It’s that crap adidas winged template again. What in god’s name are they thinking of with that &*^%?

    Okay, I get that they don’t want to look like Sunderland and Stoke. So the answer is “look like Arsenal?”

    Whatever the sponsor, this really doesn’t look like a warm-up jersey. I’d bet it’s the real deal. This is kind of disappointing. It’s a basic template with very little to no imagination used. If they want to avoid looking like other red/white striped teams, use the sash or a clever variation of stripes. Here’s to hoping the away jersey has some style. I hear it’s black with a gold crest.

    Aap3 are still our sponsors I have that direct from them… this is more likely our training shirt. But factually I can tell you aap3 have NOT pulled out of our shirt sponsor deal.

    “Southampton have worn red and white striped jerseys since 1896.”

    Um, they have not. Plus, this was leaked about a week ago.

      Here’s proof that Southampton have worn red and white stripes for the vast majority of their history since 1896 –

        “Southampton have worn red and white striped jerseys since 1896.”

        you didnt state vast majority in the your sentence. So him stating “um, they have not” is correct.

      I like it. Fantastic. Never likes the stripes. Is more like the shirt steve moran scored that fantastic winning goal in fa cup v pompey in 85 (?)
      No-one complained then. Shirt has changed many times over the years since 1885 (when it was not stripes by the way). The 76 FA cup final win was not wearing stripes either.

        Saints were in their away kit when they won the FA Cup. It is the home shirt which is traditionaly red and white as you can see on this website

        I for the record do not like it. I think it is dull and the gold is not needed. Southampton are not really a team with a history of winning much. Only the champions of something should have a gold badge to signal that they have won something.
