Western Sydney Wanderers FC have tonight launched their kit with iconic Italian sportwear brand Kappa, debuting their new home and away jerseys for the 2020/21 season.
In a club first, the Red & Black have launched their Westfield W-League home jersey with the A-League team’s home and away jersey, further emphasising the ongoing one-club culture that exists at the Wanderers.
Shot at the home of the Wanderers, Bankwest Stadium, by creative production agency partner Chisel, the launch is a nod to the 90s tying in the new jersey with the sights of Western Sydney.
Chisel and the Wanderers also collaborated with Parramatta visual artist Murli Dhir who used VHS and classic animation techniques to create the throwback urban vibe in the launch.
Both the home and away jerseys will feature a collar design for the first time in the club’s history and are made out of Kappa’s Kombat Pro System technology used by club’s such as AS Monaco, Napoli and Fiorentina.
The new home jersey for both sides features the Wanderers signature Red & Black hoops, a white collar as well as the Kappa Omni on the chest and sleeves of the jersey.
Subtle additions including the inscription “We Are The Red & Black” on the internal neckline and the club’s monogram on the back of the jersey brings together one of the Wanderers most club-inspired designs.
The away jersey marks the return of the Wanderers white away strip featuring a Red & Black hoop on the sleeves and button-collar.
The new line of Kappa kits will be available this season in a ladies cut in the A-League home and away, as well as the Westfield W-League home jersey. While kids jerseys will be available in the A-League home and away jersey.
Western Sydney Wanderers CEO John Tsatsimas said the jersey marked a new chapter in the Wanderers history.
“Our new home and away jerseys from Kappa link back to football’s history and traditions,” said Tsatsimas.
“I’m looking forward to seeing it on the pitch on both our A-League and Westfield W-League teams, as well as the members and fans in the stands.
“We’re also delighted to have worked again with creative production agency Chisel who truly understand the Wanderers identity and brand, and we would like to thank them again for their hard work.”
