The new Everton 2016-17 home kit has been officially launched. The new shirt introduces an understated design with splashes of yellow and unique details that pay hommage to Goodison Park.
Made by Umbro again the 2016/17 kit features an overall simple and understated design, the new Everton 2016-17 home jersey is predominantly blue. Heavily dominated by the club’s main color, the new Everton shirt only features subtle accents in the form of the collar and the sleeve cuffs, the former an all-white crew neck and the latter half white, half yellow.
The new strip celebrates the home of the Blues and includes the co-ordinates of the ‘Grand Old Lady’ in the back of the neck of the shirt. Goodison Park is one of the world’s oldest purpose-built and most famous football stadia, hosting more top-flight games than any other stadium in England and home to a plethora of legendary footballing moments and Everton players, including Dixie Dean, Alan Ball and Alex Young. In addition to boasting such a rich history, the stadium also features the famed criss-cross architectural signature of Archibald Leitch, who designed the Bullens Road stand. This iconic design is also included on the shirt, with Umbro creating a Leitch-style graphic to appear above the co-ordinates of Goodison Park.
