This is the new SAFC kit 2017/18, Sunderland’s new home strip for the upcoming Championship season. Made by Adidas, the new SAFC top was officially unveiled on 11 June, 2017. The Black Cats were relegated from the Premiership at the end of the 16/17 season along with Hull and Middlesbrough, with manager David Moyes also leaving the Stadium of Light after just ten months in charge.
As they aim to return to the top flight, the Black Cats have turned to the past for inspiration, with this strip inspired by the club’s first ever red and white shirt from the 1880’s. The jersey, which has a solid back, is sponsored by Dafabet.
