Next up in the kit launches for A-League clubs is Brisbane Roar, who today released their 2013/14 home, change and third kits. The Roar join Melbourne Victory, Sydney FC and Western Sydney Wanderers with official uniform unveilings in the past week. Whether or not the A-League specifically borrowed the Kit Week idea from Major League Soccer, the spread out unveilings have created quite a lot of buzz for the league and for kits in general.
The Roar have stuck with their traditional orange home shirts, again using a standard Puma template. While this look has been used around the world for 2013/14 kits, the color combinations work really well with orange, navy and white.
The change and third kits are newer looks, as Brisbane donned navy alternates in each of the past two seasons. The sharp white kit already stands out as one of the better kits in the A-League. The third kit is a grey shirt with an orange sash, which is in the opinion of this space, not as nice a shirt. But, it's not offensive, and that's a good starting point given where A-League clubs have been in the past. There is, of course, a striking resemblance to Melbourne Heart's recent change kits, too.
