Red-y to go | Colour of 2020/21 away kit is decided

Last week, we announced that we were giving supporters the chance to vote for the colour of our 2020/21 away kit, with two options – Red or Black.

Much like the classic casino game of chance, it was a tense battle, the vote went down to the wire and the result couldn’t have been closer. But we can now confirm that our 2020/21 away kit will be red.

Designed by Macron Cardiff, the shirt will be the latest in a long line of red kits throughout our history. Here’s hoping it can bring us the same success that it did for Welsh Cup victories in 1955 and 1994, as well as the UEFA Cup run of 1996.

Thank you to everyone that voted, and details of how you’ll be able to purchase the 2020/21 away shirt will be available soon.

#RedOrBlack | Vote for the colour of our 2020-21 Away Kit

Last month, we revealed our home shirt for the 2020-21 season which gives you the chance to have your name, business, school or club woven into the fabric. The response to the launch has been fantastic, and there’s still time to get involved if you haven’t already.

In the meantime, we have more kit news for you, and another chance to be included in the design process. It’s time to decide on the colour of our away shirt for the new campaign.

Our traditional primary colour, green kits have been prominent throughout our history and will always be a key part of our identity. However, following supporter feedback we have made the decision to move away from this colour for 2020/21.

Fans now have the opportunity to vote for the new away kit colour, and face the age-old choice: Red or Black.

The club have enjoyed huge success in red kits in the past. 2020 marks 65 years since our first ever Welsh Cup final win against Chester, when we wore red. Since then, red has featured on several kits, both home and away. This includes the 1993/94 season when we won the Welsh Cup once more, as well as our most successful European campaign to date in 1996, when we defeated both Dinaburg and Budapest Vasutas in the UEFA Cup. Red was also the away kit for Gavin Chesterfield’s first season in charge in 2007/08.

Meanwhile, the squad have worn a black kit throughout pre-season in the last two years, and this shirt has proven popular and generated significant sales. There is now the opportunity for it to be worn throughout the whole season on the road.

You have until midday on Monday 15 June to pick your favourite, before we reveal the winner soon after.

The Fabric Of Our Club | 2020/21 Home Shirt Revealed

Introducing the fabric of our club. The official Barry Town United home shirt for the 2020/21 season produced by Macron Cardiff.

Family, community and togetherness lie at the heart of our football club, and that is emphasised in the new bespoke design, as supporters and local businesses, schools and clubs will have the opportunity to have their names woven into the shirt.

Drawing inspiration from kits from the late 1990s and early 2000s, blue features prominently on our new home shirt in the form of a sash across the front. This sash will contain the names of our loyal supporters that get behind the team every week, helping us towards victory and truly proving to be ‘The 12th Man’. 

Meanwhile, the back of the shirt will contain the names of local businesses, schools and clubs that act as a shining light for the community and make Barry such a special place to live.

Administered by Macron, it will cost £20 to have your name, business, school or club included in the shirt, and an additional £35 to purchase your own shirt. You can find out further information on how to get involved in this initiative by visiting the Macron Cardiff store here.

Following the launch of our 2020/21 home shirt, manager Gavin Chesterfield said:

“I love the concept and the idea of our players taking to the field of play with supporters, local businesses and locals schools on their shirts. Many of our supporters have asked how they can support our club during these unprecedented times and this is a great opportunity for them to do so, whilst having their name woven into the fabric of our shirts.”
