The best thing about a new season is – new signings? No, you got it wrong. Call me a football romantic, but every summer, I look forward to kit launches more than new players and there is nothing more fulfilling than watching a perfect kit launch – just like how Trabzonspor has shown us this time.
Thanks to millions of fans like me, clubs have started identifying the need for good ways to reveal their new kits and needless to say, the 2019-20 season gave us a lot of interesting launches.
But right now, I cannot think of a more beautiful example than Trabzonspor’s latest kit announcement.
Trabzonspor unveiled their 2019-20 jersey with the help of a short film about a young boy’s dream of owning the shirt of Abdulkadir Omur, the star central midfielder of the Turkish Super Lig club.
Check out the video right here:

As you can see, the video shows a young boy sketching Abdulkadir’s name and number onto a regular t-shirt, before going out to play and coming back to a kit made by his mother – a traditional weaver. The new kit made by the mother goes on to be the featured as the 2019-20 home outfit for Trabzonspor.
The video has gone insanely viral on social media and Barcelona defender Gerard Pique was among the thousands who praised the initiative.
