Crystal Palace surprised their travelling fans by walking out to play Huddersfield Town in the Premier League today wearing their new all yellow third strip.
Kept under wraps until the very last moment before the teams emerged for their clash, the limited edition ‘Palace Yellow Fade’ is the club’s third kit with new partners PUMA, with the home (the ‘Palace Fade Stripe’) and away (the ‘Palace PUMA Sash’) strips receiving rave reviews and generating record sales.
The shirt, shorts and socks are dominated by a vibrant “cyber” yellow, and the shirt has an iconic red and blue vertical stripe with a fade effect – much like the home strip.
Palace last wore yellow during the 2016/17 season, and is seen as a lucky colour by many fans having been worn whilst clinching promotion to the Premier League in the 2004 play-off final against West Ham United, and in the unforgettable win over Brighton and Hove Albion in the 2013 play-off semi-final.
Fans can buy the limited edition ‘Palace Yellow Fade kit’ online now and in-store from Thursday 20th September.
