This design was inspired by our original kit; the first ever worn by a Southampton FC team. The iconic red sash design replaced the traditional stripes for the club's 125th Anniversary for the 10/11 season only. This was the first home kit which was not predominantly red and white stripes for over 2 decades.
It was a very distinctive kit that not only embraced and celebrated Southampton's history and tradition, but also their future. 125 years is a fantastic milestone and this kit was just the first part of many ways in which the club celebrated their anniversary.
