Sydney FC unveil 2013/14 kits

Sydney FC

Sky Blues introduce controversial home kit as club aims to sell more kits abroad.

Four days after Melbourne Victory released their controversial kits and five days after neighbors Western Sydney Wanderers unveiled their ever-so-slightly altered uniforms, Sydney FC have taken the stage next in the A-League's great kit show. Like their rivals in Melbourne, the Sky Blues' jerseys have drawn ire from local fans due to a detail that too closely resembles the Victory.

Sydney, who sell more kits than any other A-League club, have used a new adidas template which includes a mesh area below the collar, similar to that worn by AC Milan, among other users of adidas templates. Yet using navy blue in the shape of a 'V' instantly reminds Sydney fans of Melbourne Victory.

The change kits are just as dark as last year's version but include horizontal striping as opposed to the previous, thin pinstripes.

For the club with Alessandro Del Piero's name to go on the back of replicas around the world, finding the right balance between traditional colors and something attractive for an international audience is key. Just how well they found that balance will surely be made clear by the biggest of Sydney's fans, those located in Australia.

The cub's press release also included player numbers for the 2013/14 season.
