The shirt is in the classic home red colour, and Puma’s iconic T17 Form Stripe runs along each of the sleeves, with a drop tail and longer cuffed sleeves proving a more refined look.

The printed front graphic also gives the shirt a more modern appearance and there is a heat transfer gothic ‘A’ as the official signify on the back neck area. This is inspired by the gothic font that featured on the club’s crest in the past.

To help players maintain an optimum body temperature, the shirt also features Puma’s new apparel technology, ACTV Thermo-R.

As well, a phase-change material used in the inner athletic tape of the shirt, allows microcapsules to absorb excess heat and release this to the body when necessary. The taping in the shirts provides an extra snug fit, micro-massaging the skin thus enabling a faster and more effective energy supply to the active muscles of the body.
