Tottenham Hotspur are getting new kits for 2015-16, and the design will be released on the public this Friday, according to the club's official website and Twitter account. The new home kit will be available for purchase in Tottenham Hotspur'sclub store and online immediately after the release is official.
The promotional photo included in the tweet, which features Harry Kane, Jan Vertonghen, and Nabil Bentaleb, gives a few tantalizing glimpses of what the new kit will look like. Early glimpses make the kit look simple and even, dare I say it, retro. It looks to be a mostly-white shirt with a simple V-neck and a notable lack of detailing compared to this year's kits. The Evening Standard compares the kits to those worn by Tottenham in the mid-1980s during the Glen Hoddle era. The last time Spurs wore a simple white home kit was in the 2011-2012 season, Harry Redknapp's last year with the club.
The two-color blue wash precludes getting any specific color details, so it's unknown what color the (assumed) AIA sponsor logo will be; this year's logo featured red lettering on the home kit and noticeable yellow detailing, which rankled a number of Tottenham fans when they were first announced.
It's unusual that Tottenham releases their new kit designs this early. In fact, usually they are one of the last clubs to release their new kits, and it often happens during the summer months, so this is a welcome surprise to fans who have had precious little to get excited about in recent weeks. Perhaps Spurs will wear them on their post-season tour to Australia and Malaysia?
