IT’LL be a case of black to the future for Cork City next season after the launch of the club’s new away kit for 2019.

For the first in 10 years, the Rebel Army have gone back to black as their second-choice, with the shirt revealed for the first time today — fittingly, Black Friday.

Having had white and red alternatives to green since 2010, it’s a new departure for City in conjunction with adidas. The club first had a black strip in 1993, lasting for three years, while the colour was also used in 2005 and 06 and 2008 and 09.

The shirt is available to order from ccfc.ie today, with the club shop in Douglas Village Shopping Centre retailing them from next Friday, November 30.

All online pre-orders within Ireland will be delivered between November 30 and December 3 and supporters can avail of free delivery within Ireland from the club’s online store for all orders over €100. A range of new adidas leisurewear is also available.

Midfielder Garry Buckley lent his modelling skills to showcase the new kit. Speaking at the photo-shoot, he said:

“I can’t wait to run out onto the pitch next year wearing the kit. It looks and feels phenomenal. There’s nothing like pulling on the green of Cork City, but a change is always nice!”

The CCFC crest on the front is woven and matches the colour scheme of the shirt. The sleeve and rear sponsors are monochromatic to fit with the overall branding.

The jersey is made from adidas’s Climalite fabric, helping wearers keep dry and comfortable. The famous three stripes travel down the sides of the shirt. White shoulder areas and a horizontal strip across the upper-chest area complete the design.

The City home shirt will remain unchanged for 2019 while there will be a new third shirt released in the new year. Earlier this year, members of Foras voted on six designs, with the most popular one chosen to be the third shirt.
