After 3 seasons in the English Championship, Aston Villa are finally back in the Premier League and they’ve played a wildcard with the unveiling of their 2019/20 home strip.
Double-dipping on the media hype surrounding the kit release, Villa surprised its fans by announcing the long-term acquisition of defender Tyrone Mings for a £20m fee.
Previously playing for the club as part of a loan deal from AFC Bournemouth, the 26-year-old was made the star of the official unveiling of Villa’s new home kit.
Quite the quintessentially ‘Villa’ look, the 2019/20 iteration features a claret-bodied shirt with sky-blue sleeves, whilst gambling companies W88 and BR88 feature as the front-of-shirt and sleeve sponsors respectively.
The Kappa-manufactured strip features the Italian sportswear brand’s logo on the right breast and either shoulder.
The socks share the same sky-blue colour as the shirt sleeves, with ‘AVFC’ also appearing on the shins, whilst the white shorts feature the Aston Villa badge and Kappa logo down the sides.
