The Central Coast Mariners made a bold statement today in revealing their new playing kits that will be worn throughout the Hyundai A-League 2015/16 campaign.
Yellow from top to bottom with the iconic palm tree emblazoned proudly on the front of the shirt, the new playing kit identifies commitment to the Central Coast whilst matching the entertaining and innovative mantra with a bright recognisable kit.
Central Coast Mariners CEO Shaun Mielekamp reinforced the importance of this season’s kit and provided an insight to the decision making process.
“This design has been a collaborative process between our members, expertise from our kit supplier Kappa and inspiration from our club goals and direction, which encapsulates the momentum we are building here for the season ahead,” Mielekamp said.
“This innovative playing strip proudly represents our community and home ground with the bold iconic representation of our palm trees. Palm trees that symbolise our commitment to the Central Coast and its community, the palm trees are not leaving the stadium and neither are we.
“The palm tree design is also a call nationally to all sports fans to pencil in a visit to Central Coast Stadium where there are water views from every seat and a match day experience you will never forget.
“The full yellow from top to toe on the home kit reflects our strong commitment to our charity partners like Camp Quality and the Cancer Council. Whilst for away matches our full navy kit is representative of the waves in our logo that signify the momentum and movement of the Mariners brand nationally and internationally,” he said.
MasterFoods and their iconic sauce bottles have become synonymous with the Central Coast Mariners and it was only fitting that the new kits were launched at their Coast based headquarters in Berkeley Vale.
MasterFoods General Manager Hamish Thomson spoke about the importance of their relationship with the Mariners and was impressed by the new-look kits.
“MasterFoods has been a partner of the Mariners since 2004 and we make more than 400 MasterFoods products for millions of families around Australia, right here on the Central Coast. We’ve seen a few jerseys come and go, but this one really does capture what the Central Coast Mariners are all about,” Thomson said.
“We’re in the game of helping people get together over good food, and we’re proud to support our local team who bring our community together over good football, he said.
