New away kit for 2018/19 revealed

City have revealed their new away kit for the upcoming 2018/19 Sky Bet Championship season.

The kit is made up of a predominantly white shirt with black shorts and socks, featuring the robin crest.

Supporters can pre-order their strip now and receive it before general release by visiting the club’s new retail website, which also launched this morning.

Fans will be able to purchase the full away kit in the Bristol Sport Store later this summer.

Adult shirts are available in small to 5XL sizes, priced £45, with youth sizes from three years to 14 years for £35.

Adult shorts (small to 2XL) cost £25, with youth shorts (three years to 14 years) priced £20.

Adult socks are £10 and youth sizes just £8.

Special mini kits can be purchased, from 0-3 months to two-three year sizes, priced £40. This encompasses shirt, shorts and socks. 

Exclusive to the away shirt, anthem jacket and training wear, is the return of the crest featuring a Robin perched on a football in front of the iconic Clifton Suspension Bridge. It hints at the kit of the late 1980s, an era which saw City lift the Football League Trophy in 1986, followed by promotion from the old Third Division in 1989.

Bristol City vice-chairman Jon Lansdown said: “This year’s kits give a nod to the late 1980’s and as such, provide the perfect opportunity to bring back the robin for a special edition away shirt.

“Entering the fifth season of shaping our own kit design, we are proud to do things differently and the return of the robin adds to that tradition.

“I hope the fans like the new designs and enjoy wearing them with pride.”

The club teased images on social media over the last seven days, before releasing the full kit on the new Bristol City FC supporters’ app this morning, which can be downloaded to your smart phone via your preferred app store.

The app will be your matchday hub for the 2018/19 campaign, complete with an exciting augmented reality Ashton Gate experience, news articles, exclusive videos, interviews and more.
