KIT INFO: The shirt is designed with Puma’s DryCell technology, which draws sweat away from the wearer keeping them dry whilst playing. Puma says, every shirt contains their evoKNIT thermoregulation technology, which regulates humidity to create the perfect body temperature. The shirt incorporates the Puma logo on the black sleeve stripes, these are called “Formstripes” and Puma says they are dyed black as to be reminiscent of the “fearsome bat” on the club logo. The shirt has the iconic sponsor of Austrian betting and gambling brand “bwin” (famous for their presence on the shirts of Real Madrid (2007-13), AC Milan (2006-10) and Werder Bremen (2006-09)). There are very slight stripes on the shirt in a just off-white colour (just about grey), which can only be seen under a certain light. There are four of these on the main panel of the shirt. The colours are simple and are reminiscent of the colours seen at the Mestalla stadium, where they play.
