PUBLISHED: 11:06 15 July 2018 | UPDATED: 11:06 15 July 2018
The debate rages on, but the early signs are positive from the fans about Norwich City’s new away kit.
After revealing the new home kit at the beginning of the month, the Canaries put out the brand new Errea 2018-19 away kit on Saturday morning.
We set up a poll asking for your verdict - and more than half of the 2,400 voters said they love it.
The lovers make up 52pc (1,248 people), with the haters well behind at 9pc (216 people).
Another 35pc (840 people) said “it’s alright”, with the remaining 4pc (96 people) saying “don’t care”.
The white shirt features modern stripes in Norwich City colours, a nod towards the club’s iconic white away kit worn between 1989-92 by City legends such as Ruel Fox, Robert Fleck and Jeremy Goss.
Plenty of City fans left comments on the story on our website, including:
■ Jill Davies: “My grandchildren are going to want this one for sure.”
■ Grant William Turner: “I know sponsors change but I wish they could really settle on what colour they want their away kit to be so in the same way we have yellow at home (which we should also wear anyway unless there is a clash) then we would create real identity away.
“I like this predominantly white but wish somebody could say ‘we are sticking with it from now on’.”
■ Mark Mitchell: “I’ve seen better looking t-shirts at Primark.”
■ Stuart Dann: “Love it.”
■ Jade Dodds: “Best home and away kit so far. 100%.”
■ James Coleman: “Love it: far better than the home kit.”
■ Neil Wall: “Fingers crossed for the third kit to save this season’s selection of strips.”
Following the release of the 25-year anniversary home kit, the new away kit also has a modern look inspired by the past.
NCFC’s director of commercial Ben Kensell said: “Both home and away kits have been eight months in the making, from the initial brief to the bespoke design stage through to sign off and delivery with our partners Errea.
“Like our home kit, the away kit follows the theme of being inspired by our past. With the return to a white kit with the yellow and green incorporated, we hope it will be well received by fans.”
The 2018-19 away kit is available to buy now in the official club shops at Carrow Road and Chapelfield, in-shop at Jarrold Intersport and online via the club’s official store.
Norwich City’s third kit will be released on July 28.
