Check out PSG’s home kit for the 2020/21 season (video)
International Sportswear giants Nike has unveiled the new home kit for Paris Saint Germain (PSG).
The new kit which debuts on Tuesday, July 21st will be for the upcoming 2020/21 season.
Nike took inspiration from the club’s history to create the new kit for the reigning French Ligue 1 champions
The new kit is labeled as the ‘The Hechter shirt’ and is an integral part of PSG’s history.
According to a statement on the club’s official website, PSG’s new kit is centered around celebrating the 50th anniversary of the club.
The statement says that the ‘The Hechter shirt’ commemorates “Daniel Hechter, the famous fashion designer, who became president of the club of the City of Lights. An inspirational and inspiring man.”
A statement on the website about the new design said, “The kit sets the tone for the new season and you find perspectives in the chronology. It’s the foundation stone of an edifice that will be constructed in competition.
“A new shirt always builds on memories, evokes hope and has its references in its styling. From a V neck collar with two buttons on the white shirt, a nod to the 1990s, to the “50 years” embroidered in blue on the side of the shirt, to the small tricolore flag on the lining… It’s both avant-garde and steeped in history: that’s what Nike is proposing.
