Portugal, Netherlands and Turkey clubs unveil new kits for 2022-23 – SportsLogos.Net News
Apart from the European Big 5 football leagues (England, Germany, Spain, France and Italy), there are still many clubs that are well known and assert themselves well in European competition. It’s primarily among these clubs that we’ve found most of our kit unveils over the past few days, including perennial domestic and European contenders from Portugal, the Netherlands and Turkey.
SPORTING CP – Home
For their 2022-23 home kit, Portuguese Primeira Liga powerhouses Sporting CP and manufacturer Nike reversed the script their 2021-22 home kits. The 2022-23 version swaps the position of the green and white hoops from 2021-22, including putting green horizontal stripes inside the white hoops. The 2022-23 version also has plain green sleeves (which were white in 2021-22) and black v-neck and sleeve cuffs (green in 2021-22).
FC PORTO – Away & Third
Having successfully worn yellow shirts away in recent years, Portuguese Primeira Liga giants FC Porto are hoping for the same in 2022-23. Their new away kit, made by New Balance, features a tonal yellow zigzag pattern running diagonally down the front. The yellow buttoned grandad collar has dark blue trim. The wide cuffs of the sleeves are gray with a white band edged in dark blue.
Meanwhile, FC Porto go back to the 1980s to find inspiration for their 2022-23 third kit. The jersey is plain blue, with a white V-neck and white piping on the shoulders. This is meant to evoke the kits worn by Porto in the 1984 European Cup Winners’ Cup Final against Juve.
Porto have unveiled their Home kits 2022-23 last week, keeping their traditional pattern of blue and white vertical stripes.
AFC AJAX – Home
With 36 Dutch Premier League titles to their name, defending Eredivisie champions AFC Ajax have earned the right to add a touch of gold to their 2022-23 home kits. Manufacturer Adidas has kept the usual wide red vertical stripe down the front of the white shirt, but has added gold trim to the white stripes that run across the center of the red v-neck and cuffs. Gold borders also appear on the white sponsor logo, club crest and three stars above.
PSV EINDHOVEN – Away
Ajax’s Eredivisie counterparts PSV Eindhoven are looking to bring some art to the pitch in 2022-23 with their new away kit. The tonal black checkerboard pattern throughout the jersey, made by Puma, is meant to look like the outside of the Van Abbe Museum in Eindhoven, home to over 2,700 works of art. The V-neck and sleeve cuffs are red, as are the sponsor and Puma logos on the chest.
GALATASARAY – Home
Turkish Süper Lig giants Galatasaray are the latest club to unveil new kits using Nike’s latest Vaporknit design. Their traditional half-yellow half-red is highlighted by black yokes at the front and back of the collar. Nike’s Dri-Fit ADV kit pattern covers the entire jersey. The club’s interlocking GS crest appears inside a black oval, with four stars above representing their 23 domestic First Division titles (one for every five titles).
