THE new Burton Albion home strip for the 2017/2018 season has been revealed with skipper John Mousinho and new signing Jake Buxton the first to wear the new shirts.
Albion’s first team shirt will again sport the Tempobet brand for the club’s second season in the Championship.
Adult supporters’ shirts will also carry the Tempobet branding but, in line with strict betting rules, junior fans shirts will continue to feature Burton Albion Community Trust in the sponsor’s position.
Burton Albion commercial director Fleur Robinson said: “We were delighted to renew our sponsorship deal with Tempobet and we can now reveal the new shirt design for the forthcoming season.
“We are sure the new look will be a hit with our supporters and will help our partnership with Tempobet continue to flourish.
“I am also delighted that Tempobet has again agreed that our charity, Burton Albion Community Trust, will feature on the shirts of our junior fans, especially as BACT does so much brilliant work with young people.
Tempobet CEO, Tim Peters, said: “We’re very excited about renewing our sponsorship with Burton Albion and are delighted to see the company logo on the front of such a great new kit.
“There is lots to look forward to this season after the club did so well to retain its Championship status. We’re very much looking forward to being part of the journey again and wish everyone the very best of luck for 2017/18.”
The Brewers will play in the new strip for the first time when they take on Leicester City on August 1.
Following the sponsorship negotiations, the new kits are once again being designed by local company TAG with supporters' shirts of all sizes on sale by August 14. Supporters shirts in some sizes will start to arrive in stock from August 2. Further updates at www.burtonalbionfc.co.uk
