CELTIC 2016 AWAY BY NEW BALANCE

NEW BALANCE have unveiled the new Celtic away kit for 2016/17, part of the ‘If You Know Your History’ campaign for the season. 

The kit takes inspiration from the famous 1967 Lisbon Lions - where Celtic became the first side in the World to win a season quintuple. 

The tickets for the game are the style inspiration for this year's away shirt. 

Richard Wright, General Manager of New Balance Football said: “The Lisbon Lions feat 49 years ago was truly remarkable, made even more so by hauling in not just one but five trophies that season. These men - 14 of the 15 man squad born within a 10 mile radius of Celtic Park – have left a legacy that may never be repeated by any team in the modern era again. This kit is a testament to this achievement and as we look forward to the future.”

The kit is available for pre-order now, with release date set at 4th August.
