Earlier today, Tottenham Hotspur announced the release of their new 2016/17 Under Armour kit. 

The North London based club who have 7.8million Facebook fans announced the new kit designs at 8.45am through their social media accounts. 

A number of fans have expressed their concern about the Home shirt’s sponsor, AIA being printed in red.

This is not the first time Spurs have had their sponsor’s logo in red as previous brands such as Thomson and Mansion were all printed in the colour of the side’s main rivals, Arsenal.

Spurs fan, Tony Carr commented on the new home shirt (shown below) saying, “Can the home kit be bought without the red logo?”

Harry Kane wears the 2016/17 home shirt with pride.

Another Spurs fan said, “I wish the designers would get the message and just give us a proper, plain white, shirt – a proper Spurs shirt without the arty-farty flashes and frills.”

The new away shirt sees Tottenham’s famous navy blue return with a hint of gold trimming.

This has been a hit with fans, including Glenn Fuller who said, “The second kit is quality, but I saw fake Tottenham shirts which I wish were real.”

Spurs have regularly featured gold trim throughout the years including the 2006/2007 and 2008/09 third shirts.

The 2006/07 shirt featured gold trimming.

The final shirt has not been a hit with the fans ahead of their return to the Champions League.

Michelle De Alwis commented on the third shirt saying, “The gold one is awful.”

Robert Fresco also expressed his views on the new Under Armour shirts, “A bit of gold trim is okay but a gold kit though? Just not needed…”

Spurs and Under Armour have attempted to bring a retro feel to their third shirt this season, but has it worked? A number of fans say no.

Tottenham’s third shirt has not gone down well with fans.

One question on Spurs fan’s minds is, will there be a Champions League/ Cup kit as seen during the 2010/11 season when The Lilywhites reached the Champions League Quarter Final.
