WIGAN ATHLETIC & KAPPA UNVEIL 2015-16 KITS

26 June 2015

Latics unveil new 2015-16 Kappa strips at DW Stadium event.

  • Home shirt is Kappa’s take on the traditional blue and white of Wigan Athletic.
  • Away shirt is all-black with white trim.
  • Third kit is all red with white and blue trim.
This afternoon saw the glittering launch of the brand new Wigan Athletic kit for the 2015-16 season, manufactured by new technical partner Kappa.

The reveal of the three different kits, plus the training kit, took place at the DW Stadium.

Firstly, Richard O Donnell, Martyn Waghorn and Tim Chow took to the stage to showcase Kappa’s superb take on the classic blue and white striped home shirt, this year featuring a plain reverse. The Club has reverted to blue shorts and plain white socks.

Lee Nicholls, Craig Morgan and Jason Pearce were next out to reveal a kit which will give Latics fans memories of our famous FA Cup final; this kit is an all-black affair with a white trim including a stripe down the centre of the back.

Finally, Emyr Huws was presented to the crowd in the third kit, which for this season will be all red with white and blue trim, and Grant Holt showcased the new training kit which is a deep shade of blue. 

Latics Head of Commercial Ian Laithwaite said: “The kit launch was a really successful event and we’re delighted with the early feedback we’ve received from fans about the new kit.

“Kappa provide us with a good look but also a top quality product and we hope this can be the start of a long and successful partnership.”

Mark Ward, Managing Director of Kappa UK, commented: “It was a really enjoyable afternoon at the DW Stadium and the fans I have spoken to have given us great feedback about the new kit.

“We work with some great clubs in Europe and we’re delighted to be relaunching in the UK with clubs including Wigan Athletic.

“Everyone has followed the story of Wigan Athletic in the modern era of football and we hope to make our contribution to next chapter in the club’s history.”

All of the kits feature Kappa logos to the front and shoulders, with ‘Latics’ appearing on the bottom of the reverse. 

The kits will be available to buy from DW Sports in the Grand Arcade toward the end of July, although pre-orders will be taken online, following the launch of laticsstore.com next week.
