PUMA® today revealed the 2015/16 Rangers home kit, it’s most technically advanced kit to date. PUMA® has been the official supplier and the official licensee of replica merchandise for Rangers Football Club since the 2013/14 season, and the new home kit includes a series of technical innovations to improve player performance.
The kit, available in-store now, contains moisture wicking fabric and ventilated panels, and a new HeiQ adaptive AC fabric, which is based on the principle of dynamic moisture transport. The fabric adapts its properties according to climate conditions and thermo regulates the body.
The new HeiQ fabric is paired with PUMA’s ground breaking ACTV taping technology which has been present and constantly evolved in Rangers jerseys since the 2014 season. Strategically placed ACTV strips within the jersey micro-massage specific areas and enables a faster and more effective energy supply to the muscles.
The new home shirt includes traditional club colours with the T7 stripe on shoulders and sleeve in a contrast colour to optimize freedom of movement and improve fit. The home shirt also features contemporary cut-lines, a new tapered silhouette and innovative neckline with colour inserted panel, along with contrast colour panels under the arms. This T7 stripe detail is mirrored on the shorts, while the socks are, as always, traditionally styled to pay homage to the club’s heritage while engineered to provide comfort and support in key areas.
Rangers Interim Chairman Paul Murray said of the partnership: “Rangers appreciate Puma’s support and are delighted to be in a partnership with such a prestigious company. I believe this alliance brings together two of the most iconic brands in Ruth How, Head of Marketing, PUMA UKIB, added: “Rangers has one of the richest heritages in European football and from the moment we took on duties as official kit supplier to the club we wanted to ensure the kits we delivered were worthy of this rich history. The new 2015/16 home kit is our most technically advanced to date to boost on pitch performance while we have ensured that it is styled in a way fitting of the clubs traditions”.
