Olympique Lyonnais publishes this Friday morning the images of its jerseys for the next season. The home outfit marks the return of the two-tone red and blue stripe while the outer tunic will be entirely red.
Lucas Paqueta was right. Last month, the OL midfielder mistakenly unveiled his team’s next home shirt, on his Instagram account. This Friday, Olympique Lyonnais formalizes the tunics that its players will wear next season.
Made from recycled plastic
The home shirt keeps the historic colors of the club, blue, white and red, but marks the big comeback of the two-tone vertical strip on the right side of the piece, in reference to the great years of the Rhone club.
“Synonymous with beauty, magic and the transmission of heritage, this band symbolizes the heritage of Lyon-style games, like the players who wore it: Serge Chiesa, Fleury Di Nallo, Bernard Lacombe, Sonny Anderson, Sidney Govou or Juninho, “writes OL in its press release. The club also specifies that this jersey is made “100% from recycled materials, thanks to Parley Ocean Plastic, a high performance material designed from plastics recovered from the oceans”.
Worn this weekend
Regarding outdoor clothing, the 2021-2022 fiscal year will mark a return to red after a black season. “Floral prints” litter this sober and elegant swimsuit, “resolutely inspired by street art and fashion”. The next tunics for the women’s team were also unveiled on this occasion, with the only difference being the sponsor at their center.
The home jersey will be worn for the first time this Sunday on the occasion of the last day of Ligue 1 against the Girondins de Bordeaux. A meeting, the last of Depay in Lyon, which could allow OL to qualify for the next Champions League in the event of a Monegasque misstep in Lens at the same time.
