Once again produced by New Balance, the Celtic 2017-18 jersey introduces a classic look to pay homage to 50th anniversary of the club’s historic 1967 European Cup win.
As announced by the club, the new Celtic kit is inspired by Celtic’s greatest ever side, the one that won the European Cup in 1967 and is since known as the Lisbon Lions. Therefore, the Celtic 2017-18 home kit features the traditional green and white hoops in the most traditional, no-nonsense way possible.
The kit pays tribute to the incredible achievements of the Lisbon Lions 50 years ago by featuring a special textured 50th anniversary gold crest; a unique feature of the New Balance Celtic FC kits for the 17/18 season.
The two teams who competed in the 1967 final have been commemorated in the inner back neck of the jersey, where the green and white hoops of Celtic and the black and blue stripes of F.C. Internazionale Milano are featured.
The green and white base of the Celtic 2017-2018 home kit is accompanied by shiny gold logos, including a special, monochrome version of the club crest which includes an inscription about the 1967 triumph. The crest will also appear on the away and third options.
The new kit is inspired by the kit worn by the team who achieved the first European Cup victory of any British club, and returns the design to the classic green and white hoops, with gold crest, sponsor and NB branding.
