Bristol City away kit voted best kit in the EFL

Bristol City’s purple and lime away kit for the 2017/18 season has been voted the best strip in the EFL this season.

In a poll conducted by the EFL on Twitter, City’s away offering was voted the best kit in the country, beating Sheffield United’s home strip by 52% of the vote to 48%.

Bristol Sport chief executive Andrew Billingham said: “We’re absolutely delighted to have won best overall EFL kit. It further supports the move we made four years ago to take back control of how we design and manufacturer kits and training wear.

“Credit for the winning design has to go to the feedback from supporters and the vision of the club.”

Over 15,000 votes were cast in total and there were a series of stages City’s kit had to move through to reach the final.

To date, both of City’s new replica shirts have exceeded previous closed season sales records.
