New EPL 23/24 name and number font

The Premier League will change font starting with the 23/24 season. The current design has been in use since 2017.

Click here to see the full press release from Avery!

5 standard colors seems to be the playbook once again. In the photo you will see 2 x white, most likely just to show how it looks like on a blue, red shirt respectively. Accusations of Curry favoring red / blue teams are thereby taken off the table.

The sleeve badge seems to have seen a bigger overhaul than the letters and numbers.

The biggest change to letters plus numbers is that the numbers now come with a pattern engraved.

The sleeve badges are very different in style though.

Seems like they follow in the footsteps of Nike and adidas and eliminate all noise in their logo and try to keep it is as basic as possible.

To see the full story from the joint Avery + EPL press release click here!

The new font will launch together with the new EPL kits come May 2023.

Newcastle United 22/23 home kit

New jersey from Castore and for Newcastle. Newcastle would like to switch to another and bigger brand but Castore has decided to see the contract out. Thus for the season 23/24 Newcastle will continue in the UK based brand. The shirt sponsor is most likely to change as well once the current sponsorship deal expires. ARAMCO anyone ?

The printing will change for the new season 23/24. Most like the Premier League logo will remain the same though.

The current colorways are white, black, navy, red, neon.

Hopefully neon will be replaced by gold. Gold is much more useful than neon green which is rarely used if at all.

Newcastle United’s 2022-2023 home kit, manufactured by Castore, is a classic black and white striped design that fans of the club will love. Castore is a relatively new player in the football kit industry, but they have already established themselves as a quality kit manufacturer, and their latest effort for Newcastle United is no exception.

The kit is made from Castore’s patented AeroTec fabric, which is lightweight, breathable, and moisture-wicking, ensuring that players stay comfortable on the pitch. The kit’s design is clean and simple, with black and white stripes running down the shirt, shorts, and socks. The kit has a retro feel to it, and it harks back to the days of greats such as Alan Shearer and Les Ferdinand.

The Castore logo is prominently featured on the front of the shirt, while the back is left blank except for the club’s short name, NUFC, printed in turquoise. The sleeve badge, in blue, features the PL’s famous lion head. The printing on the back of the shirt is in red, providing a striking contrast against the black and white stripes.

Overall, the 2022-2023 Newcastle United home kit is a stylish and functional design that is sure to be popular with fans of the club. Castore has done a fantastic job in creating a kit that is both modern and classic at the same time. The AeroTec fabric ensures that players are comfortable on the pitch, and the simple yet elegant design is sure to appeal to fans of all ages.

Barcelona 22/23 home kit – GAVI #6

FC Barcelona home kit for the season 22/23 started out with Gavi at number 30. But during the January transfer window the club managed to bring down costs so they could inscribe GAVI as a player in the first team squad and thereby enabling his number switch as well. GAVI got the legendary number 6 which was immortalized by his current coach XAVI. Fellow teammate PEDRI is at number 8 which obtained its current status through magic of Andres Iniesta, another Barca legend.

September 2022

January 2023

Both names set are the La Liga version. The traditional color for the Barca names and numbers is yellow but this time around gold was applied instead.


Chelsea 19/20 home kit

Chelsea has new owners. The club is in a phase of change. Results are a bit up and down. But one thing remains the same. The home kit is blue. In the example below it is the 19/20 home kit which is on display.

The name and number kit for the home kit is also a constant. The color is white.

Sleeve badges can be either gold (reigning champs) or the standard blue / white if Chelsea did not win the league title during the preceding season.

Example in point:


Arsenal 3rd kit 22/23 – pink

New third kit for Arsenal in pinky red. Contrasting color is navy and not black. A bit of skyblue is built into the cake as well.

Premier League ærmemærket er det samme som til de andre trøjer og bruges af de andre klubber ligeledes. Kun mesterholdet optræder med et særligt guld badge.

Premier League er den største og vigtigste nationale klub liga i verden. UEFA Champions League er nok den eneste der kan konkurrere med PL om titlen som den fornemste klubturnering i verden.

Elegant name and number set: Navy/white are the colors. Premier League logo in the bottom of the number.

FC Barcelona

FC Barcelona 1981 retro shirt

Barcelona has been a powerhouse in international football for quite some time. Already during the 1980s the club was capable of attracting international stars to its ranks. The shirt was as always the iconic blau/grana kit.

Player of the year in 1977 in all of Europe Allan Simonsen made the switch to Barcelona around 1979. At the time players would only wear the number. Simonsen was the 7 with Barcelona and the 8 with Danish national team.

However, if players would have worn their name as well it would probably have been SIMONSEN #7 as shown in the image above.

Misc. Clubs . . .

Santos FC jersey 1960s Pelé 10

Pele played most of his club career with Santos FC located in the city of the same name. He managed to win 2 Copa Libertadores titles with Santos FC.

In a modern era Neymar Junior has algo gone through the ranks of Santos.

The colors are white and black. White home kit and black away kit.

The names on soccer jerseys only started to emerge during the 1990s. Thus during the times of Pele the name PELÉ would not appear. There would only be a number. The font is similar to the one used during 1960s though.
