Leicester Tigers have revealed the club’s new Home and Change kits for the upcoming 2021/22 season and we got an early preview.
Titled ‘The Spirit of Leicester’ and ‘The Awakening’, the club has this season looked to the inspiration of the Leicester community when designing its home and change strips, celebrating the togetherness of the city throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.
The 2021/22 Home kit embodies this proudly with the split-stripe green, white and red colours mirrored by the fearsome brush strokes of a season ticket holder’s inspiration.
Reflecting the cities diversity and spirited cultural standing, season ticket holder James Lad created his own take on the head of a Tiger standing for toughness, passion and a drive to come through anything.
The Home jersey is matched with white shorts and black socks celebrating the traditional line-up of previous generations of Tigers kit.
James’ design also plays a prominent part in the Change kit capturing the character of one of nature’s most feared predators. His design jumps out of the white belly of the Tiger with the orange and black stripes complete the look in an all-white strip.
As well as the Topps Tiles logo on the chest, the shirt will continue to carry the logo of club partners STIHL, Breedon and Mattioli Woods, with TDT Technology, Toyo Tires, Global payments and the club’s latest kit sponsor Biffa on the shorts. Fox’s Glacier Mints and Manomosa brands will feature on the number patch.
The designs continue the club’s theme of creating new and exciting designs that are unmistakeably Leicester Tigers, as Steve Borthwick’s men prepare to build on last season’s progress.
Both home and away shirts are on sale now with men’s, women’s and kids sizes available from www.leicestertigers.com/clubshop or in person from the club shop.
