Recognised as one of the most significant people in the Club's history, 2014 marks the 10th anniversary of Bill Nicholson's passing.
The designs for our new range of Under Armour kits are inspired by Bill – and our new Third Kit is certainly no exception.
With the Club having first worn a yellow kit under Bill's reign, our new Third Kit features yellow shirts, shorts and socks - with 11 dark navy stripes running horizontally across the outside of the shirt sleeves and sides to signify the number of trophies won during Bill's reign.
This stripe detailing is replicated on the socks, with further dark navy trim adorning the shorts.
Our range of new kits reference one of Bill's most famous quotes - 'It is better to fail aiming high than to succeed aiming low. And we of Spurs have set our sights very high, so high in fact that even failure will have in it an echo of glory.'
This 'Echo of Glory' inspiration pays tribute to Bill's achievements and significant contribution to the Club – and these words are incorporated into a special design on the reverse of the Third Kit shirts, inspired by the famous gates which lead up to White Hart Lane on Bill Nicholson Way.
Our new Third Kit is exclusive to Spurs and only available to purchase through Spurs Shops and our online store. It’s available to buy now - with the players set to wear it for the first time during this afternoon's pre-season friendly against Schalke at White Hart Lane.
