Southampton FC have now officially unveiled their new 11/12 season home kit. The new Saints home kit 2011/2012 was due for an unveiling on Wednesday, 20th July, 2011, with the club accepting pre-orders for the kit prior to the official release. The club have said that they hope this season’s home kit surpasses the popularity of last season’s 125th anniversary strip.

The 11/12 Southampton home kit sees a return to stripes. It has been made by Umbro and is part of the kit makers’ “Tailored by Umbro” range. The club did not play in their traditional red and white striped creation last season, but their 125th anniversary strip was the fastest selling jersey in the club’s history.
The new red and white striped Southampton home kit 11/12 is accompanied by black shorts and white socks. Aap3 are the sponsors of the new Saints 2011/2012 home shirt.
The new Southampton home strip will be worn for the first time in the forthcoming Markus Liebherr Memorial Cup.
Southampton’s 2011-2012 away kit will be revealed on Saturday, July 23, 2011.
