Town have regularly played in red and black as a secondary identity, with the colours popular with many fans and the Club most recently wearing red and black change strips during the 2013/14 seasons.
This new look will be the fourth away kit manufactured by adidas as part of the brand’s current technical kit supply contract with Ipswich Town FC. The new kit features a retro-feel white v-neck, white embroidered adidas brand logo and full colour woven club crest. White adidas three-stripe detailing to each side seam compliment white detailing to the shoulders. The shirt also incorporates a breathable fabric interest on both the sleeve and shoulder panels and is twinned with black shorts and red socks, each showing white adidas three-stripe branding finishes.
Innovation is at the heart of the kit with both the jersey and short featuring ventilated adidas climacool®, to keep fans cool and dry, along with the woven crest execution designed to reduce irritation on the skin.
Town have also revealed an all black clash goalkeeper kit which Bartosz Bialkowski and Dean Gerken will wear throughout the new season. In addition, a further all green goalkeeper kit (not shown) will also be used during the 2017/18 term, although this is not being sold by the Club.
