After much anticipation, rumors, leaks, and official announcements, the Trotters have finally revealed what they will be wearing for the 2013/14 season. We'd like to say that we're surprised by Bolton Wanderers' brand new home kit but the club's reveals combined with other clues meant that our shirt mockup ended up to be pretty accurate, save for the shirt sponsor (which ended up changing at the last minute) and the badge (that was officially revealed yesterday).
All in for the Wanderers. Here's our new @adidasuk kit for the 2013/14 season. #BWFC twitter.com/OfficialBWFC/s…— Official BWFC (@OfficialBWFC) June 6, 2013
The home kit, once more the traditional white, features navy blue adidas stripes and logo. Under the arms, fans will notice relatively large navy blue ventilation inserts with another ventilation patch or red directly above it. The club's brand new badge is featured on the left part of the chest while FibrLec's logo occupies the center of the shirt, in place of where QuickQuid's logo was originally meant to be.
Partnered with the shirt are navy blue shorts, also bearing the new crest, this time in white and red. Coupled with the shorts are white and navy blue socks, featuring a hooped motif.
Also unveiled with Bolton's new home shirt was the primary goalkeeper kit that Adam Bogdan will wear (found here). The kit is bright green with black inserts and piping, similar to a Reebok shirt that Jussi Jaaskelainen wore a few seasons back.
The shirt was originally supposed to be available for sale on Sunday, 9 June, but that date has understandably been pushed back until 27 June with the club forced to prepare plenty of shirts with the new sponsor.
