Brentford 2nd Kit

Brentford Away 2021-22, 2022-23

BRENTFORD’S SECOND KIT REVEALED FOR 22/23 & 23/24 SEASONS

  • Influenced by the popular kits of the 1980s and early 1990s, and featuring the castle crest, Brentford’s new Umbro strip is on sale in-store

In all honesty, I am proud of Brentford doing the right things by fans. Far too many clubs issuing 3,4,5,6 shirts per season nowadays (“Goalkeeper’s third shirt Champions League short-sleeve Version” etc) 

“With our fans behind us, we are never away from home.” The words of Thomas Frank which have helped inspire Brentford’s new Umbro second jersey for 2022/23 and 2023/24 seasons.

The new kit has been revealed today and will go on sale in the Bees Superstore on Saturday 23 July, 9am. The light blue design, reminiscent of our away kits from the eighties and early nineties, feature an embroidered castle crest and will be the second kit in as many years which will be rolled over for two seasons.

The castle crest was introduced in 1975 as a celebration of ‘the fortress’ Griffin Park, when, in the 1929/30 season, the Club went on a record-breaking run of 21 home wins and was used by the Club for 18 seasons between 1975/76 and 1992/93. It has been reintroduced to the new kit for this two-year cycle, representing the fortress which our fans help us to build away from home. 

With its stylish design and comfort, we believe it will please the fans as much off the pitch as it will the players on it. It also features ribbed cuffs and collar, signed off on the inside with ‘Bee Together’, our message of inclusivity and our Bee symbol printed on the neck.

Jon Varney, Chief Executive of Brentford FC, said: “The castle badge holds a special place in many of our fans’ hearts and this kit gives us the chance to celebrate a period in our history while acknowledging the impact that our fans’ support gives Thomas and the team, particularly away from home.

“We took the unusual decision last season to roll our home kit over for two seasons, offering more value to our fans and helping to reduce our carbon impact by extending the kit’s lifespan. The feedback from our supporters, and beyond, was overwhelmingly positive so we’ve decided to take the same approach for the new second kit.

“We know we have more to do to step up our sustainability efforts across the Club but we feel that this simple step will encourage others to think differently and consider other ways to reduce their own impact on the planet.”

Adult shirts will be priced at £52 and £40 for juniors. This marginal increase (£3 for adults, £2 for juniors), in comparison with last season’s prices, is due to unavoidable supplier cost increases. In comparison with other Premier League teams’ shirt prices, and with it having a two-season lifespan, it will be one of the best value shirts in the league.

Prices of the home shirts, rolled over from last season, remain at £49 for adults and £38 for juniors.

The new second kit will be in action at both the VfL Wolfsburg and Real Betis matches on 23 and 30 July respectively.

Fans should note that, based on current sponsor contracts and possible regulatory changes, the sponsors on the kit may be subject to change for season 2023/24.

Utilita’s branding will continue to feature on the Brentford FC Women’s First Team, Women’s B Team and Academy match kits, along with all junior replica kits for this season.

Fans will be able to purchase the new second kits exclusively in the Bees Superstore in-store on Saturday 23 July (9am-6pm) and on Sunday 24 July (10am-4pm) with sales opening via our official online Bees store at 10am on Monday 25 July.
