Charlton Athletic’s brand new, 90s inspired home kit for the 2018/19 season has been revealed.
Just as they did with the club’s new away shirt which was unveiled earlier this week, kit manufacturer hummel have taken inspiration from a popular strip worn in the 1990s.
Influenced by the home kit worn by the Addicks during the 1989/90 and 1990/91 seasons, the new shirt includes a similar shadow chequerboard pattern to that of the original incarnation.
hummel were also keen to introduce more white back into this season’s strip and have included teardrop mesh side panels which hark back to another very popular kit worn during the successful decade - the white panels bringing back memories of the shirt which was worn during 1998’s play-off final at Wembley and the 1998/99 and 1999/2000 seasons.
The shirt, modelled by Jason Pearce and Lyle Taylor, as well as women's team players Charley Clifford and Gemma Bryan, features hummel’s distinctive chevrons running down the sleeves and was once again chosen following consultation with supporters’ groups. It is complemented by white shorts with red trim and red socks with white trim.
Supporters will be able to see the home strip in action for the first time during Charlton’s home friendly against Norwich City at The Valley on Saturday, July 28th (3pm) and will be available to purchase from Wednesday, August 1st both in person from the Valley Superstore and online.
Adult shirts will be priced £45, while shorts will be available for £25 and socks £12.
Meanwhile, kids’ shirts will be priced £35, with shorts priced at £18 and socks £10.
