PHOTO: Shaqiri Models Stoke's First Ever Third Kit in Celebration of Decade in the Premier League

Monday July 24th, 2017

​Stoke City have revealed their first ever third kit, designed to celebrate the Potters' tenth season in England's top flight.

Using the same design as the club's away kit for the 2017/18 season, the shirt, as modelled by Swiss star Xherdan Shaqiri, switches out the blue in the away shirt for white, with a blending blue and red pattern as a block along the club crest and Macron sponsor.

The top employs a white collar with red and blue on each sleeve cuff. The shirt also shows off Stoke's sleeve sponsor Top Eleven, in blue, along with their main shirt sponsor bet365 - also blue.

Interchangeable with the away kit's shorts and socks, the shirt isn't necessarily required for any upcoming matches they will play this season, but is instead an ode to playing ten consecutive campaigns in the Premier League.

The top will be available from Friday, August 18 - the day before their first Premier League home game of the season kicks off against Arsenal. 

The shirt is expected to be available for £45 - the same price on the Stoke website as both the home and away adult shirts. Juniors tops are expected to be priced at £35.

Stoke's season kicks off on August 12 with an away visit to Everton, before hosting the Gunners the following week and then travelling to West Brom the match day after. The club's first five fixtures bring a mixture of difficulty. 

Despite facing both Manchester United and Arsenal in the opening weeks, the Potters will feel that three points could definitely be achieved against West Brom and Everton - and then away to Newcastle on game week five.
