‘Kit season’ usually occurs during the summer months during the off-season when clubs from all across the globe release their new kits for the upcoming season, so naturally, it’s a surprise that Sunderland have already launched their new home kit in the middle of March! Here is Sunderland’s Umbro 2011-2012 Home Kit.
Direct from the Tailored by Umbro collection, the kit carries the name of the clubâ€™s new main sponsors, tombola.
Sunderlandâ€™s new home strip showcases the clubâ€™s traditional red and white stripes and black shorts but uses the clean, modern lines synonymous with Umbroâ€™s tailored range.
The Black Catsâ€™ classic stripes are complimented with a v-neck for 2011/12, edged in black, along with the shirt sleeves which share the same design element.
The back of the shirt features a striking design of diagonal chevrons across the shoulder area giving it a distinctive and modern look.
The black shorts are trimmed with red and Sunderlandâ€™s players will once again sport red socks which will feature two white hoops and the classic Umbro diamond logo.
