This is Blackburn Rovers’ new 2012/2013 home kit, the home shirt that Blackburn Rovers FC will wear in their 2012/13 Championship season. Rovers were relegated from the 2011/12 Premier League, with a loss to Wigan at Ewood Park sealing their fate after a disappointing league season. Blackburn’s new 2012/13 home jersey has been made by Umbro
This new Blackburn Rovers 2012/2013 home shirt was officially unveiled by the club on 17 May, 2012 but had been on sale at renowned sports retailers JD Sports prior to the release.
The striped v-neck top, abandoning the red trim from the 11/12 shirt, is split into two vertical halves of blue and white and has different coloured sleeves ( white sleeve on the blue side and blue on the white side). No sponsor has been readied yet, and fans wishing to buy the kit will have to do so with it being blank. The sponsors’ logo can be printed later.
Blackburn Rovers’ 11/12 home kit, for the record, had the Prince’s Trust logo in the place for the sponsor.
