The SPL kicks off this weekend and here’s a look at the new kits for the upcoming season.
The 2021 Singapore Premier League (SPL) kicks off on Mar 13 and while all eyes will be on the action on the pitch, there may be another aspect which fans may be interested in – jerseys.
Whether you’re a collector or a fan who wants to own an item to identify with the club you support, jerseys are typically in demand in the football scene.
The most common jerseys available are probably those from football clubs in Europe. However, there are a few gems to be discovered from our local football clubs too!
Here are the jerseys SPL clubs will don in 2021 and how you can purchase it.
Fresh from winning their fourth SPL crown, Albirex will once again be kitted out by apparel sponsor Mizuno and have retained the orange colour for their home jersey this season.
Costing $110 with full printing, the jersey also features blue vertical stripes down the middle, which has been described as a bridge between the club and its supporters.
For jerseys without full printing, it will cost $99.
Also on sale are the Albirex white away kit as well as the goalkeeper jerseys, which come in black and green.
These jerseys can be purchased via their online shop here.
A fan of all things red? Then Balestier’s home jersey for the new season could be something for you.
The Tigers, who are sponsored by Adidas, will be decked out in their attention-catching yet no-frills bright red strip this year. The top also comes with consistent stripes which don’t look too jarring on the eye.
Balestier’s away jersey features a simpler design that comprises a classic white top with three black stripes and the Adidas logo on the sleeves.
The club has unveiled its home and away goalkeeper jerseys too, which comes in black and orange respectively.
To celebrate the club’s 123th anniversary, a special logo has also been imprinted on the spine of these jerseys.
Having qualified for its first Asian Confederation Cup in 10 years, Geylang take on a new look on the pitch too.
Unlike jerseys of recent years, the Eagles have done away with the hoops design. This year, their green and white home kit with stripes and dots that will cover the front of the jersey.
Geylang’s away kit comes in a flashy pink, a change from the traditional black or blue.
The club has marketed these jerseys as ‘Decked To Soar’ and the Eagles will certainly look to do so on domestic and continental fronts in 2021.
Launched on Feb 22, the Hougang home jersey sees a light orange top with bold black lines which cut across the shirt. The sleeves still retain the bright orange that Hougang fans are accustomed to.
The Cheetahs meanwhile, will be kitted out in blue for their away games, similar to what they wore in 2020.
Both Hougang’s home and away jerseys cost $60 each and are available in sizes S to 3XL. It can be purchased from the club directly, via their Facebook page.
Spending big on the signing of midfielder Diego Lopes, the first million-dollar signing in the SPL’s history, the only privatised club in Singapore football will vie for big honours on both domestic and continental fronts this season.
The Sailors will do so in white and blue, the colours for their home and away jersey respectively.
There is a slight change in the designs for their kits this year. For instance, the trims on the home kit is white, instead of the blue seen in the 2020 kit.
The jerseys, priced at $40 each, are available for pre-orders here. Sizes run from XS to 2XL.
With each purchase, you will also receive a free Lion City Sailors lanyard and a NETS FlashPay card, which doubles up as a 2021 season pass.
Combining the club’s traditional home shirt colours in black and yellow, the home jersey of eastern giants Tampines comes with a unique gradient design with the black-yellow striped sleeve cuffs.
As a tribute to the lives lost worldwide due to COVID-19, the club crest on the jersey is blacked out too.
It is a similar look for Tampines’ away jersey, which is primarily white with black-withe striped sleeve cuffs. The logo is also blacked out too.
