The design heralds FC Porto’s arrival as a footballing powerhouse, incorporating the blue tones worn during the Club’s first-ever European final in 1984.
That special moment marked the birth of a global fanbase and began the journey to becoming Portugal’s most decorated team in international competition.
General Manager of New Balance Football, Kenny McCallum, added: “The Dragao has been the scene of so many great triumphs and with the fans in full voice the atmosphere is unmatched.
The new third kit recognises the importance of the Stadium in FC Porto folklore and many more seasons to come”.
“It’s great to see such a strong design celebrating the Dragao. I’ve had so many special moments here and just like the rest of the team, I’m looking forward to wearing this one, when we play away from home”.FC Porto midfield star, Vitinha
The goalkeeper strip is introduced in black and has been developed in line with the outfield players’ jerseys.
The release is part of New Balance’s “Unbreakable by Nature” campaign for FC Porto. The creative is guided by international photographer, Justin Bettman, who worked alongside the brand to help showcase the connection between the new design, the club, and its ties to the city.
