WAKEFIELD’S newly launched football team has revealed its kit for home and away games reflecting the city’s tradition and ambition for the future.
The city’s first ever football team to be housed in Wakefield will play in white with a red and blue diagonal striped top at home games while they will play in red and blue striped kit away.
The choices build on the city’s strong rugby heritage and on Wakefield AFC’s determination to develop a loyal football following in the city.
Russ Green is the club’s CEO said: “The colours of white, red and blue are synonymous with Wakefield and we wanted to tap into that heritage and demonstrate our links to what is currently on offer for sports fans while we look to grow a strong soccer team,” he said.
“Now we are looking for sponsors for the front and back of the shirts, the sleeves and the shorts,” he added.
“Since our launch in March the level of support that has come forward from both businesses and football fans has been tremendous. We want to make a grand start to our first season with a strip that reflects Wakefield and showcases great businesses and demonstrates our ambition.”
“We are already in talks with some sponsors but there are four opportunities so would welcome corporate backers,” added Russ.
