New Premier League sleeve patches for 2016/17 onwards

Recommended Posts

So we'd already had a glimpse of the new Premier League champions patch:

But the league just confirmed it, as well as the patch the other nineteen clubs will be wearing:

And yes, that background texture is baked in.

Not a big fan.  I don't mind the new lion head, but everything about this (except for the basic circular patch shape) is a downgrade.

 

Even black would have been an improvement over the purple.  I know that one of the points of the new branding is their ability to constantly re-color, so maybe the purple will be temporary.

Here's the sleeve application:

I do like the off-center text filling the bottom-left quadrant.  Wonder how many counterfeiters will get it right.

 

The Cosmos have always had that off-center going on:

I should be pretty easy to get right if you know what to look for (use the star on the ball for reference), but it's pretty common to see the badge inadvertently put at an angle.  


Both incarnations of the club has gotten the angle wrong in the past:

Leicester City got the angle wrong themselves with Andrea Bocelli's patches during the trophy presentation...

I too suspect we'll be seeing a fair few wonky applications.

Whoops.

 

Yeah, should be interesting to see how often that goes wrong.

So there is a 1, a 5, and a 6 in the patch using the new premier league font, but I saw on one of the other threads the PL will still keep the previous letters and numbers.  Maybe we will see something different in 17/18?

The amount of blank space in the upper right corner of the patch is a bit jarring. Makes it look incomplete.

 

Overall, not a terrible patch, but I think most of us (myself included) prefer the existing identity.

Needs an inner circle and the background textures darkened.

Interesting that the gold trim on the jersey is terminated under the patch. Is that planned? If so I wonder how it will look on replicas with no patches.

The gold piping tapers out under where the patch sits, it looks fine if none are applied.

The gold trim tapers to a point.

EDIT: Holy :censored: , I love that color scheme.  The deep, dark royal and bright gold.  Hope it looks half as good on the pitch.

I think it looks good, too. But I'd like it more with white for Leicester. This gives me such a Wimbledon vibe. Another option would be white shorts.

Wow, yeah that does look great!
