This is the new Sunderland away kit 2012/2013, SAFC’s new away strip for the forthcoming 2012/13 Premier League season. This new Sunderland away 12/13 top is the first SAFC kit from the Adidas stable after the Black Cats struck a deal with the kit giants earlier this year to replace Umbro. This SAFC away 2012/13 kit also has a new shirt sponsor in the form of “Invest in Africa” and was officially revealed on June 25, 2012.
The new Adidas SAFC away top for 12/13 is blue in colour with turqouise trim, as can be seen in the pics below. The Invest in Africa initiative is being sponsored by London based Tullow Oil and is reportedly the biggest shirt sponsorship deal in the club’s history.
The Black Cats have several African players on their roster- the trio of Asamoah Gyan, John Mensah and Sulley Muntari ( all Ghana), Egypt’s Ahmed Elmohamady and Benin’s Stephane Sessegnon.
