Saturday’s big reveal for Bristol City was the ‘purple and lime’ third away strip design for the Championship campaign of 2018/19.
Supporters can pre-order the kit, if it takes their fancy, at 9am on Thursday, June 28 prior to it going on general sale at the club shop and the retail website.

Now, reactions to the home and away kits for the coming year were mixed. It’s usually the case as fans generally have a bugbear or two with various issues in a design and the go to this season was undoubtedly the sponsor and the switch to the Robin badge with each kit carrying a different club crest.
The 3rd strip, however, is far more controversial and divisive. Reactions were certainly mixed on social media when the announcement was made and it’s the quintessential ‘Marmite’ job with no middle ground. It appears you either love it or loathe it.
