The Adelaide Football Club will unveil its new gold jumper in the NAB Challenge match against Fremantle in Western Australia on Sunday.
The gold jumper is one of three strips the Crows will wear in 2016.
The Club has streamlined its on-field look this season with the traditional red, gold and blue hoops featuring on all three guernseys.
The ‘home’ jumper retains its navy blue base. The ‘clash’ guernsey is white, while the gold will also be used as a clash or ‘alternate’ guernsey. The designs were voted for by fans late last year. All three jumpers are available at CROWmania.
It’s the first time since 2005 that Adelaide’s home guernsey has returned to the original hoops design from 1991, the Club’s first season. Adelaide first wore an away guernsey in 1999. A red-based ‘clash’ guernsey was introduced in 2006 and the first of the recent white-based clash guernseys was worn in 2010.
The gold jumper will be worn with white shorts this weekend.
Sunday’s sold-out match at Sounness Park in Mount Barker, near Albany, in WA starts at 1:40pm (WST). The match will be broadcast live on Fox Footy or on the AFL Live App, which is offering a free trial. SA radio station FIVEaa will also be calling the game.
