Away Kit A Huge Success

Replica kit sells out within a month as fans flock to purchase

17 August 2018

The Colchester United away kit for the 2018/19 season has proven a huge success, with fans rushing to purchase the fantastic new strip.

The kit was launched last month at our popular Open Day and has sold out within 30 days.

The team's replica away shirts, which features a camo pattern design in black and grey, has proved to be a big hit. The distinct camo kit pays homage towards the towns military garrison history. It is a mix of greys with black sleeves and has a classic black collar with two white stripes.

Colchester United’s Chairman, Robbie Cowling explained: “The away kit has been extremely well received, especially by the players and the younger fans. What is also important is there has not been a negative impact on the home kit sales, where sales are also up on recent seasons.

“During the World Cup there was a lot of demand for the Nigeria shirt which sold in the millions. We normally only sell away shirts in the hundreds so that is all we had ordered, and hopefully Macron can restock us as soon as possible.”

What are your thoughts on the 18/19 away kit? Is the Col U shirt better than the Nigeria shirt?
