|July 12, 2006 (London, UK) - 32Red Online Casino and Aston Villa FC today unveiled the club’s new home kit for the forthcoming 2006/07 season.|
The classic looking strip displays the 32Red logo on Villa’s famous Claret and Blue and it will hit the shops on 19th July but is currently available from the club on pre-order.
32Red Plc CEO Ed Ware tipped the new kit to be one of the best there has been. “We are absolutely
thrilled that we can now reveal the new Aston Villa
home kit. We think it is a classic design and we have no doubt it will become a firm favourite amongst the fans”
Villa Sales’ Director Stuart Ryan added: “We’re delighted with the style for the new season and also pleased that it reflects the views of around 4,000 supporters who took part in an e-digital survey to tell us their preferences. It was the best response ever had and many of the design features suggested have been incorporated and already there’s been a very positive response from our fans.”
Ed continued: “Everyone at 32Red Plc is very proud and excited that millions of people throughout the World will now see the 32Red.com website address every time they tune into to see Aston Villa playing in the Premiership”
The home kit was donned for the first time at Aston Villa’s Bodymoor Heath training ground earlier this week, with Steven Davis, Gary Cahill, Thomas Sorensen, Martin Laursen and Aaron Hughes all giving it a big thumbs-up.
The first appearance of 32Red’s name in the Premiership comes on Saturday 19th August, as Villa becomes the first team to face Arsenal at the new Emirates Stadium.
