Diamonds turn Sapphire!
25th July 2012
The famous Airdrie Diamonds will be turning out in Sapphire next season, as we unveil our brand new all-blue away kit.
As previously announced, The Club have entered into a deal with Puma to supply our kits for the 2012-13 season and a new home and away kit was ordered for the beginning of the season.
Unfortunately, due to delays at the factory caused by a production error, the kits will not be ready for Saturday's fixture. As a result, Puma have very kindly offered to provide us free of charge with a third-choice kit, which will be worn on Saturday. The Club are very grateful to Puma as it was an offer they did not need to make, but reinforces our decision to switch to Puma as our kit supplier.
We have been able to secure a very limited range of replicas although there is the option to order more with a 12 week lead time. The Club will look to take up this option in time for Christmas if we receive strong sales of the home and away kits, as is important to clear existing stocks before investing in more merchandise.
The away kit will hopefully be worn against Queen's Park next week and can now be pre-ordered for an estimated delivery date of mid-August through our official retail partners UKSoccershop. The kit is available in both short and long sleeves along with the accompanying shorts and socks.
A range of Puma merchandise including rainjackets, polo shirts and more is also available to purchase online at our exclusive new club shop.
We hope to be in a position to release details of the home kit at the beginning of next week. Let your imagination run wild as we have gone for something a little bit different...
