Aberdeen have unveiled our new Adidas 2022/23 season home and away kits, inspired by those worn 40 years ago in a season that culminated in European Cup Winners’ Cup glory on an unforgettable night in Gothenburg.
The home kit features the iconic white pinstripe design, synonymous with that rainy night in the Ullevi Stadium on 11th May 1983. The away kit also mirrors season 82/83 with some modern touches and both kits will carry a special commemorative badge to mark the anniversary, along with two stars on the sleeve, representing our two European trophies.
Both kits, which will also carry the logo of our new shirt sponsor TEXO for the first time, are now available to pre-order in-store and online at afc.co.uk/shop.
An adidas spokesperson said: “As a result of unprecedented challenges over the past year we expect to see a delay to Aberdeen FC 22/23 match wear and training wear. We understand the frustration felt by the fans at this time and we have worked in close collaboration with the club to find the best solution on delivering the product as soon we can.”
In practice this means that our home kit will not arrive until late July with the first team set to wear their away kit for our friendly matches and Premier Sports Cup fixtures which fall before then, starting with our match with Buckie Thistle on Saturday 25th June.
