Swansea City Home and Away Shirts for 2013-14 Season: Preview [PHOTO]

Swansea City have today unveiled their new home and away shirts for the 2013-14 season. Tomorrow, they’ll be unveiling the shirt sponsor name to reveal the complete picture of home and away kits for next season.

Let’s start with the Swansea home shirt first. It’s plucked right from one of the latest adidas templates. It’s clean and simple. At the same time, the most glaring feature is the black bar on the shirt sleeves. My only concern is how similar this shirt will look to the Fulham home shirt for next season since both clubs have similar colors and are both using the adidas templates. So far, it looks like the collar design and shirt sleeves are different enough to make them stand out from each other.

With the Swansea City away shirt, this is quite a departure and bold move by the club and adidas. Most people will either love or hate the yellow and purple away kit. My first impression is that I don’t like it, but as with most shirts, I’d like to see it in person or on television before I’ll know for sure.

One thing that hasn’t been uncovered yet is what aspect Dylan Thomas’s famous poem “Do not go gentle into that good night” has in terms with the Swansea away kit. The words have been used in a social media campaign. And Thomas lived in Swansea. It’s quite possible that the words of the poem may be woven into the shirt design.

    OK, so instead of a shadowy Asian online betting site, it’s an even more shadowy Asian gold/silver and currency exchange company. Uh…progress? Weird, guys. Really really weird. And the rambling press release on the site doesn’t help at all.

    I think the home it is a bit boring for us. It would look a lot nicer with the away kit template, in my opinion. As for the away kit, I really like it because it is unique and the colours contrast nicely.:)

    I have no problem with templates but the panel on the home shirt sleeves is really annoying on every adidas shirt that has it.

    The away looks interesting.

    I actually like all of it but the sponsor is critical to me. I am a little tired of the online gambling site thing. Really hoping it’s something a little lower on the Skeeze Scale.

      The rumors I’ve heard is that it’s another Asian betting company.

        Well, that’s just great. bleah. I thought their early termination of the 32Red contract meant they were going in a different direction.

    They should use the 1982 kit forever.

      I agree, but last season’s home kit was one of their best ones ever, too.

    Home kit – Black & White is perfect but the design – horrible.

    Away kits – both design and colours – Swansea City could have done better! Its terrible and loud!
