SAINTS have revealed their dark green third kit for the 2022-23 season with a nod to Southampton’s aviation history.

The strip follows last month’s reveals of a majority-white and red home shirt and marine-inspired away kit.

Created in partnership with hummel, the new Saints third kit celebrates the city’s rich aviation history and its connections to the RAF.

The dark green and black shirt features a subtle detail design, taking reference from propeller blades, launched again under the campaign, Bold is Brave.

The shirt features four stripes on either side of the shirt, in yellow, white, red and blue, taking inspiration from the RAF Roundel.

The kit is matched with dark green shorts and green and black socks, while the socks also feature the four stripes inspired by the RAF Roundel.

“We’re delighted to launch our third kit, with this shirt, we wanted to give a nod to our city’s connections to the RAF,” said Sarah Batters, director of marketing & partnerships for Saints.

“Working with hummel has allowed us to be creative and celebrate that in the design of the shirt.”

Like last season, this season’s kits have been produced using Eco8 material made from fabric created using recycled plastic bottles.

As with the home and away, Saints will be releasing its third shirt as an NFT. One fan will be able to own the original digital design of the kit, combined with the first physical shirt off the production line.
