Brisbane Roar will be sporting orange and white kits as well as a specially-themed maroon kit for the Hyundai A-League 2016/17 season.
The Roar will wear their first ever maroon kit during the 2016/17 season, paying homage to the club’s support from all corners of Queensland.
In a stadium (Suncorp) that is synonymous with success, some achieved in maroon gear, it is suitable that the Roar have introduced the kit as they begin the hunt for a fourth Hyundai A-League Championship.
The kits will be available for purchase in the club’s official kit provider Rebel Sport from 1pm on Saturday, 1 October at 1pm.
Members are invited to an exclusive event on Saturday morning at Suncorp Stadium where they can watch the squad train on the hallowed turf as well as purchase our new kits from 10am.
Brisbane Roar is extremely proud to continue our front-of-shirt platinum partnership with Steadfast for the Hyundai A-League 2016/17 season.
The kit features a number of unique elements designed from some of the many incredible Brisbane Roar moments at Suncorp Stadium, including:
Stadium Sleeves – subtly embossed in to the sleeve of the jersey is the pattern created by the seats inside Suncorp Stadium. This unique detail pays homage to our home ground.
Orange Sunday – To this day, Brisbane Roar holds the record for loudest crowd cheer at Suncorp Stadium. In the 2011 Hyundai A-League Grand Final as extra time drew to a close and with only seconds to spare, Brisbane Roar completed one of the great sporting comebacks with THAT HEADER by Erik Paartalu.
Below the neckline and above each players name is the sound wave from that record-breaking moment (below) .
Home Coordinates – On the inside of the jersey below the Umbro logo sits another reminder of Suncorp Stadium, the home ground that has become a fortress and the venue of great on-field success over the years. In addition to the Suncorp seat pattern, you’ll find the latitude and longitude coordinates of our home.
The Technology – This new Brisbane Roar kit is the most unique jersey Umbro has brought to the market. An engineered mesh panel has been inserted into back of the jersey to ensure there is plenty of ventilation for the Roar players. This jersey will be a comfortable and competitive garment for all of our players.
Our Hyundai A-League, Westfield W-League and Foxtel National Youth League teams will all wear the new threads for home matches.
Tickets are available for Brisbane’s Hyundai A-League Round One clash against Melbourne Victory on Friday, October 7 at Suncorp Stadium HERE .
