Olympique Lyonnais Unveil 2024-25 Home Kit – SportsLogos.Net News

Must read


French Ligue 1 side Olympique Lyonnais are hoping to unite their fans in the same way the two rivers that flow through their home city do with their new home kit for 2024-25.

Olympique Lyonnais unveiled the new kit, made by Adidas, on their website and social media channels on Wednesday, May 15. The kit retains the club’s traditional white base with broad red and blue vertical stripes down the center, though this version has them fading out to white in a halftone gradient pattern.

Combining the authenticity of the club with that of the city, at the heart of a modern design, the jersey is inspired by the two rivers that cross the metropolis: the Rhône and the Saône. 

In the image of the river and its tributary, two red and blue stripes start from a subtle V-neckline and run down the length of the jersey until they unite in the center, symbolizing the Confluence as the emblem of the city of Lyon.

A graphic printed inside the collar reads “ENTRE RHÔNE & SAÔNE” (“Between the Rhône and the Saône”) and maps out the two rivers in red and blue. The shape of the graphic and corner embellishments are an “aesthetic reference to the city’s street signs.”

The shirt has a white collar with a blue stripe through the middle and blue Adidas shoulder stripes. Large swoops on the sides of the jersey match the color of the center stripes on their respective sides and extend down into the shorts, which also have a white base. The socks are white with blue accents.

It was unclear from Wednesday’s announcement if Lyon will wear the new kits in any of their remaining 2023-24 matches. Their men’s team host RC Strasbourg in their Ligue 1 finale on Sunday, May 19, and will also square off against Paris Saint-Germain in the Coupe de France final on Saturday, May 25. The women’s team, meanwhile, play PSG in their D1 Arkema finale on Friday, May 17, and then take on FC Barcelona in the UEFA Women’s Champions League final on Saturday, May 25.
