Away Kit Delayed Until Mid-July
Monday, 28th Jun 2021 14:37

Town’s new away kit will now not be unveiled until mid-July due to delays caused by factory lockdowns in their country of origin.

The Blues launched their new home kit, which with the help of sponsor Ed Sheeran’s fans has been selling in impressive numbers, with the away strip, which is believed to be white, expected to follow soon afterwards.

However, the club say that it won’t now be made public until next month: “Having experienced some delays with delivery due to factory lockdowns in the country of manufacture, our 2021/22 away kit is now set for a mid-July reveal.

“The kit will be available for pre-order as soon as it is revealed with supporters expected to receive their orders at the end of July. General sale is currently planned for the first week of August.”

Pre-orders of the new home shirt will start to be processed towards the end of this week but it is expected to take the club’s retail team a couple weeks to process and dispatch them all. Supporters will receive an email once their shirt has been dispatched.

Those fans who ordered for collection from Planet Blue will receive an email once their order is ready to collect and are not to attempt to collect their shirts until they have received their email.

"We have increased our staff levels in order to fulfil all orders as quickly as possible," Town's head of retail operations Paul Macro told the club site.

"We ask supporters to bear with us, and all fans that pre-ordered will receive their shirts before they are released for general sale – which is likely to be mid-July."

Town's 2021/22 adidas range of training kit will be available to purchase in the next few days.

Delay it for a year, and only have a new one every two years

Unfortunately that’ll mean having to use the current away kit which is awful.

Bloody brexit!

Should be made here not in some sweat abroad shop for 50p

SouperJim What has Brexit got to do with it?

What a shame it can’t be made in this country.

Europablue; marked you down by mistake, please accept my apologies.

Delay to make you weight so you buy both

JewellintheTown added 15:28 - Jun 28
I thought they were all made in Leicester. Could still be depending on contract get out clauses.

Last years Replica Garment was made in Thailand.

Paul Macro needs to go into more detail of the away kit supply chain....

..... I need to get my coat

Please let's have an away shirt that looks like a football shirt as opposed to last season's explosion at a paint factory disaster.

Super, since when did Brexit cause lockdowns in other countries. Surely you mean bloody Covid.

deano85 added 16:47 - Jun 28
I understand why this causes a delay to the release date, but surely they can grab a couple for a big reveal??

Skip73 added 18:05 - Jun 28
Linkboy, that was in my opinion, the worst shirt of all time, although the wishy washy design suited the wishy washy players to a tee.

Have it made here cressi, then they'll charge £150 a shirt.

SouperJim added 20:00 - Jun 28
I see I've farmed a few with that one. And they say news commenters are dull...

Cant quite get the right shade of ginger

How about Stars and Stripes ?

Monkey_Blue added 10:13 - Jun 29
whilst it’s a nice idea to keep a kit for two seasons and as someone said, have it made here…. The club aren’t going to sacrifice profits on shirts. It would put us at a disadvantage revenue/wage cap wise.

The away kit was unveiled on July 9th last year so a mid-July delay isn't too much of a big deal

(I know this because that's my birthday and it was too late to get it as a present)
