FC Krasnodar Reveals New Kits For 2016/2017
(Krasnodar, 15 July 2016) – Global Sports Brand PUMA and FC Krasnodar have today revealed the new Home and Away Kits for 2016/2017. PUMA and Krasnodar Football Club announced a long-term partnership in May this year, and this is the first kit release from PUMA as the Club’s official kit partner.
Both the Home and Away kits feature the traditional FC Krasnodar colours. The Home kit uses a gradient of black and green, with classic white detail on the Club badge, PUMA Cat logo and inserts on the sleeves. Working with the same colour palette, the Away kit is white with grey, black and green detail. Both shirts feature an asymmetric pattern providing a refreshed look for the new season ahead.
The new performance shirt worn on pitch by the players features PUMA's new apparel technology ACTV Thermo-R, strategically inserted in both the front and the back of the shirt to help players maintain an optimum body temperature. A unique phase-change material is injected into the shirts' inner athletic tape, which allows microcapsules to absorb excess heat and release it back to the body when needed. The taping in the shirts provides an extra snug fit, micro-massaging the skin in specific areas to enable a faster, more effective energy supply to the active muscles.
FC Krasnodar player, Andreas Granqvist commented:
- “I am happy that the Club signed a contract with a strong brand with a rich heritage in football. The kit designed for us looks very modern and stylish while also helping our performance through the technologies built into the kit. I am sure we will enjoy wearing it. I also expect a good season for our team together with PUMA”.
