Although we are still awaiting the 1st July as the official date when Pompey’s home and away shirts will be available to pre-order through the club shop and online footballmerchandise stores such as Kitbag, these seem to be the new designs that will be used for the new Portsmouth shirts. Leaks of these shirts manufactured by New Zealand manufacturer Canterbury have not been many, if any. Paul Hart’s side will be looking to improve on a relatively disappointing season where they finished in the 14th place in the bottom half of the Premier League table. The 2008/09 shirts had a golden touch to celebrate the club’s 110th anniversary, but it seems the golden colour will not be retained for this season’s shirts.
Pictures appearing on the internet show a blue home shirt with two shades of blue. The sides and bottom-back of the shirt will be a darker blue than the rest of the shirt, as will the back of the collar where the text Portsmouth FC will be printed. The shirt will have a V-neck collar, and white touches on the collar, sides and sleeves. The Canterbury logo will appear on the left side of the chest as well as on both sleeves. Turning our attention to the away shirt, the new shirt will be mainly white, with the sides and bottom-back being a whitish shade of blue. The shirt will have a long blue collar, with the Canterbury logo appearing just below it on a blue background. The logo will also appear on both sleeves. The sleeves will have a blue trim, and the shirt will have a minor blue 3-ovals design on each side, and a frontal, blue, 2-stripe design on the left side, where the Pompey crest will be placed. We await official confirmation of the above shirt designs of this Premier League club.
