Macron, our new kit partners as of this season, have incorporated a true Bristol blue in our traditional blue and white quartered home shirts and selected a predominantly yellow away strip.
The ‘V’ necked home shirt has a breathable vent running down each side, blue trim on the sleeves and ‘The Gas’ printed just below the neckline on the reverse.
The front of the shirt bears the name of Dribuild, our sponsor for next season while the logo of Shield Environmental Services, our back of the shirt sponsor, is on the reverse. The shirt is teamed with white shorts and socks.
The away kit is a yellow shirt with black trim and this shirt also has a breathable vent running down each side.
This is also a ‘V’ necked shirt, and ‘The Pirates’ is printed just below the neckline on the reverse.
The front of the shirt carries the logo of our away kit sponsor, Powersystems and Shield Environmental Services have their logo on the reverse. The shirt is teamed with yellow shorts and socks.
Prices are as follows:
Shirts: £43.00 £34.00
Shorts: £28.00 £19.00
Socks: £15.00 £12.00
As the partnership with Macron was confirmed at the very end of last season, designing, producing and delivering the kit in time for the start of the forthcoming season has been an immense challenge. Macron have succeeded in delivering our new matchday kit in time for next weekend’s opening fixture at Scunthorpe, though we are NOT able to offer shirts for sale at Monday’s Open Day.
Supporters can pre-order online and PERSONAL CALLERS to the club shop at The Memorial Stadium on Monday will be able to pre-order home and away shirts at a discounted price. (We regret that we are unable to extend this privilege to supporters unable to attend the Open Day).
The Club Shop at The Memorial Stadium will be open from midday on Monday and will close at 5.00pm. Samples of the new shirt will be on display and the pre-order discounted prices will be as follows; (Adult sizes £40.00, Juvenile sizes £30.00). If supporters would like their shirts posted to them on arrival, this will be done free of charge.
We apologise, unreservedly, to our supporters who were expecting to be able to purchase their new shirt on Monday but, rest assured, the new Bristol Rovers 2016/17 kit will be worth the wait!
