This is the new Bournemouth third strip 15/16, newly promoted AFCB ‘s new alternate kit for the upcoming Premier League season. The strip was officially unveiled by Bournemouth on July 22, 2015, and 5% of the proceeds from the sale of every shirt will be donated to the Breast Cancer Care charity.
The kit has been “made” by JD Sports, making Bournemouth the first club in the United Kingdom to have JD as an official shirt supplier. The Cherries’ 2014/15 kits were made by JD owned clothing brand Carbrini.
Both Bournemouth’s 15/16 home kit and this third kit appear to use C-X-Tech Fabric, which is a Carbrini speciality.
Kits made specially for charitable purposes have been gaining traction in recent years, fulfilling clubs’ dual obligations of social responsibility and offbeat shirts. Rayo Vallecano, for instance, will have a rainbow shirt in La Liga this season.
The pink shirt features intricate detailing and a crew neck with white trim. It is paired with pink shorts and socks. Mansion are the shirt sponsors, but their logos will not appear on junior kits and the ones used by Bournemouth’s U21 and academy teams.
A date for sale of this special third kit will be announced by the club in due course.
