The Russian club, currently managed by André Villas-Boas and featuring players like Hulk, Axel Witsel, Aleksandr Kerzhakov, Ezequiel Garay, Anatoliy Tymoschuk, and more will look to challenge for the title after finishing second last season and they will look to do it in style.
Wearing Nike once again for the upcoming 2014/15 season, Zenit have unveiled a pair of absolutely gorgeous kits. The new home shirt utilizes the fantastic template that France wore during their World Cup quarterfinals run but opts for a bit more color. Zenit will wear their traditional marine blue color with a rounded navy blue collar and sleeve cuffs. The home kit is completed by marine blue shorts and socks.
The away kit, on the other hand, features a v-neck collar similar to the one worn by the Netherlands, Croatia, Portugal, Brazil (away kit) and other Nike teams during the World Cup. The shirt is all-white save for the collar, which comes in marine blue, and a gorgeous two-toned sash that runs down the body from the right shoulder to the left hem. The sash is inspired by the uniforms of Peter the Great's army and switches from marine to navy blue midway through its run. The away kit is paired with white shorts that feature blue stripes running down the side and white socks with a blue band across the top.
Both shirts feature a pennant tab on the inside, just below the color, that is also present in all of Nike's other kits for both the World Cup and the upcoming season. Zenit's read "Наше имя зенит" or "Our Name is Zenit," in English.
