PLAY­ING FOR THE SHIRT IS EASY WHEN THEY’RE THIS GOOD...

Australian Four Four Two - - PERFORMANCE - Leo James

The A-League is back, and each club has now re­leased its new look kit for the up­com­ing sea­son. With six dif­fer­ent man­u­fac­tur­ers, FTBL has seen all the new de­signs up close, with some ticking all the boxes. Macron, Um­bro, Nike, Adi­das, VIVA and PUMA make up the six dif­fer­ent sup­pli­ers who will be rep­re­sented across Aus­tralia. One of the big­gest changes seen in this sea­son’s kits, is the re­turn of the stripes on the Mariners home kit, back af­ter a seven-year ab­sence. A new in­clu­sion this sea­son is the per­son­alised vari­a­tions of the lat­est Hyundai A-League logo, spe­cific for each club.

The Syd­ney Derby is set to light up Round 3 of the new sea­son, when Syd­ney FC host West­ern Syd­ney Wan­der­ers at Al­lianz Sta­dium. In what is sure to be a packed sta­dium, di­vided with half in Sky Blue and half in Red and Black, it will be a vo­cal bat­tle be­tween The Cove and The RBB through­out the night. The in­tense ri­valry ac­tion doesn’t stop their ei­ther, with the Mel­bourne Derby set to stop Mel­bourne, the Orig­i­nal Ri­valry be­tween Ade­laide United and Mel­bourne Vic­tory to paint South Aus­tralia Red, as well as the F3 Derby, fea­tur­ing Cen­tral Coast Mariners and New­cas­tle Jets. Ex­pect to see colour, pas­sion, flavour... and plenty of tough chal­lenges this sea­son!
