Palace Legends Cannon And Hilaire Help Launch New Iconic Away Kit

10 May 2018

Club legends Jim Cannon and Vince Hilaire joined members of the first team squad in Southwark, south London last week at the photoshoot for the 2018/19 kit launch.

Next season's change strip is the 'Palace PUMA Sash', featuring an iconic design that was voted one of the best 10 kits of all time. It celebrates the 40th anniversary of one of the most memorable seasons in the club's history when the 'Team of the 80s' managed by Terry Venables and full of promising youngsters won promotion to the First Division.

At the shoot, Cannon & Hilaire, key members of the 1978/79 team, met emerging young stars, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, James Daly and Nya Kirby, as well as Wilfried Zaha, the best-known product of the club’s academy. 

See how it unfolded in these two exclusive videos below.


The away kit will be worn for the first time during the 2018-19 pre-season, and will be on sale from early July. Pre-orders can be made now.
