This is the new Shakhtar home jersey 2015/16, the new Shakhtar Donetsk home strip for the upcoming Ukrainian Premier League season. Made by Nike, the strip was officially unveiled on 13 July, 2015 ahead of the club’s upcoming Super Cup clash against domestic rivals Dynamo Kiev, who edged them to the UPL title last season.
Shakhtar also competed in the Champions League during 2014/15 and qualified behind Porto in a group that also consisted of Athletic Bilbao and BATE Borisov. They caused a bit of a flutter by holding Bayern to a 0-0 draw in the first leg of their Round of 16 clash, but suffered a heavy 7-0 reverse in the return leg in Munich
Minor changes in the home shirt- a collar has been introduced, while the sleeves are fully orange.
