New Balance football has unveiled two new kits for Portuguese giants FC Porto, as part of its ‘Outro Nível’ (Another Level) kit campaign for the forthcoming season.
The home shirt incorporates the famous stripe design from the victorious 1987 European Cup Final win, with iconic stripes feature gradient tones of blue, influenced by the depth of blue tiles that adorn the Estádio do Dragão stands.
The away shirt features a Dragão (Dragon) constellation on the front, with ‘Porto! Porto! Porto!’ part of FC Porto´s anthem, appears on the internal hem of the jersey.
The kit has been developed using NB Dry technology, a moisture wicking fabric that helps keep players cool and dry whilst wicking sweat from the body, making it fast drying.
FC Porto’s Danilo Pereira said: “This is a very special kit design. The Draco constellation is at the very heart of the Club. Wearing the constellation on our chests shows the ambition of the Club and our fans. I can’t wait to wear this next season!”
The full range of New Balance FC Porto Away kit products will be available from www.newbalance.co.uk/ and in New Balance stores worldwide from Thursday 16 June.
