West Yorkshire club, Huddersfield Town, are preparing themselves for another season in the Sky Bet Championship. The Terriers finished nineteenth last season but comfortably avoided relegation, finishing eleven points clear of third-bottom Charlton Athletic.
Manager David Wagner, a former United States international, joined from Borussia Dortmund II last November and will seeking to build on last season’s survival. Mid-table respectability is the new season’s aim.
In readiness for that, the club launched its’ 2016/17 home kit over the weekend.
Huddersfield Town 2016/17 Home Kit
This is the 2016/17 home kit to be worn by Huddersfield Town.
Manufactured by Puma for the fourth consecutive season, it features the familiar blue and white striped shirts. The shirt features a lighter blue which has become prominent in recent years. It’s a darker hue than that used last season.
A white panel with primary sponsor, Pure Legal Services, logo within. The club badge features three gold stars, signifying the three consecutive league titles won between 1923 and 1926.
The template for the stripes is straightforward with the pattern traversing the body of the shirt evenly. The central blue stripe leads into an open blue v-neck with a white winged collar.
The shoulder panels of blue merge with the stripes to form part of the sleeve pattern.
On the reverse of the shirt will be a white panel to host the player name and number whilst secondary shirt sponsor, Northern Commercials, has their logo across the shoulders.
The kit is completed by white shorts and socks. Down each leg on the side of the shorts, runs a thick blue stripe. The socks feature a thick blue band for the turnover and Puma’s logo on the upper shin, also in blue.
It’s a reassuringly familiar strip without being dated. The shade of blue used in Puma’s design gives a fresh look to the shirt.
