This is the new Shakhtar kit 2017/18, Ukrainian champions Shakhtar Donetsk’s home shirt for the upcoming Ukrainian Premier League season. Made by Nike, the new Shakhtar 17/18 jersey was officially unveiled on 11 July, 2017.
Shakhtar were comfortable league winners in 2016/17, finishing well above nearest rivals Dynamo Kyiv to seal an automatic spot in the group stages of the 2017/18 Champions League.
The home shirt’s orange and blue colours are inspired by Shakhtar’s Donbass Arena, while the black sleeves represent the darkness in Donetsk’s coal mines.
System Capital Management (SCM) Holdings remain principal sponsors of Shakhtar’s new home jersey.
