Today New Balance has unveiled the new 2017/18 FC Porto away kit. The shirt has been launched as part of the ‘Joga Sem Fronteiras’ or ‘Play without Boundaries’ campaign for the 2017/18 season.
The 2017/18 FC Porto away kit is dominated by a striking Flame orange color scheme that has been a key design feature in FC Porto away kits from previous years. The bright and clean design is sure to stand out as FC Porto take on clubs both in Portugal and around Europe in the new season. The kit includes a white cross over rib v neck collar and white detail mock vents to the underarm. A white FC Porto prist weld crest and NB sponsor logo feature on the chest.
“The design team has done a great job in creating a kit that will capture people’s attention both on and of the pitch. This year’s campaign line is all about “Play without Boundaries” and this applies to our kit designs as much as it does to the players. As well as being visually striking, the team has ensured that the kit will allow the players to perform at the very highest level and maintain the standards of this historic club.”
– Richard Wright, General Manager of New Balance Football.
The kit has been developed using NB Dry technology, a moisture wicking fabric that helps keep players cool and dry whilst wicking sweat from the body, making it fast drying. 3D stretch mesh under-arm regions and a body map mesh to the back of the shirt have been incorporated to aid movement and airflow around the body.
The kit is completed with orange shorts and socks,with Flame Orange crest and sponsor logo. Zonal cushioning integrated within the socks ankle and Achilles areas offers added support. The foot bed has been developed with polypropylene to alleviate excess moisture when the foot makes contact with the boot.
The goalkeeper kit has been engineered in line with the outfield players’ jerseys sporting a mock vent and back body map mesh system to compliment the outfield kit aesthetic. The deep UV Blue design with white color crest, white sponsor and NB branding has a sleek look, completed by the tonal three color sleeve pattern.
“For the players, the way a kit performs on match day is just as important as the way it looks. With such a colourful design and comfort, I am really looking forward to playing in the kit next season and bringing success for my team and to the fans.”
– Ivan Marcano, FC Porto Player.
