New Watford Away Kit 2014-15 | Puma Black & White Watford Shirt 14-15

This is the new Watford away kit 2014/2015, Watford FC’s new change strip for the forthcoming season. The Hornets had already unveiled their 2014/15 season home kit a month ago, and the away kit, made by Puma, was officially unveiled on June 6, 2014.

The black and white strip is a tribute to the 12 Watford FC players who went to war in WWI. 2014 is the 100th anniversary of the Great War (1914-1918). It is also a century since Watford wore a black and white shirt for the first time.

The Hornets will donate £1 from the sale of each away kit to the Royal British Legion.

The club have also confirmed that they will be wearing this new away kit for the home fixture which falls nearest to Remembrance Sunday (in November)

    Taking nothing away from the cause, Newcastle and Udinese were the first two words that came to mind 😀

    Like the kit, but it does remind one of Udinese. Better to go for a more original look.

    Safe to say we now know what the newcastle united kit is going to look like puma has a template for anything with stripes and uses it again and again

    Way too many clubs use the Black and White strips generic template for this to be anything special. I guess if its for sentimental value then it’ll work. Half the Italian league uses this kit
