Burnley unveil Premier League return kit with clever youth sponsor solution

Burnley FC

Burnley Football Club secured a spot in the Premier League for the upcoming season with a second place finish in the Championship in 2013/14. For 2014/15, they have stayed with Puma for the sixth straight season after going in unbranded kits for their last Premier League campaign in 2009/10. The new kit also marks the return of betting company Fun88 as a shirt sponsor, having previously sponsored the club from 2010 to 2012.

The new shirt is predominantly claret with sky blue sleeves and a sky blue rugby-style collar. The blue color also runs down both sides of the shirt as a piping element. The club's crest is big and takes it natural place on the left side of the chest while the Puma logo flanks it on the opposite side in white. The main shirt sponsor is also white.

The home shirt is paired with white shorts that are accented by claret elements. The kit is completed by claret and blue socks.

PUMA Head of Marketing UKIB Ruth How said of the 2014/15 home kit:

"Burnley is a club with great history and tremendous support.

"We're delighted that they are returning to the Premier League and wanted to create a kit which is worthy of the exciting season ahead."

"Players and fans continue to wear the claret with pride, and will do so even more this season in the top tier of English football.

"We believe that Burnley can enjoy a fantastic season, and we look forward to standing alongside them throughout."

The youth shirt here is actually really cool. The club did not want to have children wear a betting company on their shirts and instead opted for a custom logo that, at first glance, looks exactly like Fun88's. The kids shirts instead read "BFC82 Burnley Football Club" in what is a very cool move from the club.

The kits go on sale on the first of July with the away kits set to be unveiled later this summer.
