SAINTS will return to red and white stripes for their upcoming 2024-25 season home kit, the Daily Echo understands.

The St Mary's side will sport their iconic style with new kit manufacturer PUMA after two seasons bearing different designs. 

Saints wore a kit in homage to a 1980 strip for the 2022-23 season, which concluded in relegation from the Premier League

This season, wearing Southampton's last design done by Hummel, brought a remake of the 1987-89 pinstripe design. 

Saints announced a new four-year comprehensive kit partnership with sportswear brand PUMA earlier this week.

The manufacturer's first move will be to bring back the iconic red and white stripes for which Saints have become synonymous. 

All kits for the new season, along with training wear, travel wear and accessories, will be revealed this summer.

Phil Parsons, CEO of Saints, said: “We’re thrilled to announce this new long-term partnership with PUMA.

"It was important for us to find a like-minded partner that could not only deliver on creating bespoke kits that align with our strong identity but is also able to create a high-quality range of products for our fans.

“We look forward to working closely with PUMA on a wide variety of projects over the coming years in order to build upon the success we are having as a club, both on and off the pitch.”
