Mon 24 May 2021, 08:00|Tottenham Hotspur
We can today unveil our new Nike Home Kit for the 2021/22 season, which pays tribute to the Club’s iconic cockerel crest in its centenary year.
The cockerel was worn on the Club’s shirts for the first time in the 1921 FA Cup Final victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers, with Jimmy Dimmock scoring the only goal in a 1-0 victory.
Club marks centenary of iconic cockerel with new Nike Home Kit for 2021/22
• New Home kit pays tribute to the Club’s iconic cockerel crest – worn for the first time 100 years ago.
• Original cockerel design from the 1921 FA Cup Final features on the shirt’s inner pride.
• As part of the Club and Nike’s continued commitment to sustainability, the shirts are constructed with 100 per cent recycled polyester fabric, made from recycled plastic bottles.
• 2021/22 Nike Home Kit now on sale through Club and Nike channels.
The original cockerel features on the inner pride of the new white Home jersey. The kit is completed with navy blue shorts and socks, featuring a white Nike swoosh, and is now on sale through Club and Nike channels, including all Spurs Shops.
To further mark the launch of the new Home Kit and 100 years of the cockerel:
• The first 1,921 fans to purchase a new shirt will receive a complimentary special edition Cadbury chocolate bar.
• Fans will have the chance to purchase a special edition Home shirt featuring unique 100th anniversary printing on the back.
As part of the Club and Nike’s continued commitment to sustainability, both the shirts that players will wear on the pitch and the replica jerseys for fans to buy are constructed with 100 per cent recycled polyester fabric, which is made from recycled plastic bottles.
As part of their wider Move to Zero initiative – a journey towards zero carbon and zero waste – Nike are focused in scaling the usage of lower-carbon material alternatives. Recycled polyester reduces carbon emissions by up to 30 per cent compared to virgin polyester and, since 2010, Nike has been using this material to produce football kits.
Tottenham Hotspur is equally dedicated to minimising the environmental impacts of its activities across all Club operations and was this year named the English Premier League’s greenest club following a study carried out by BBC Sport and the UN-backed Sport Positive Summit.
The Club has also led the way in terms of single-use plastic reduction, including:
• Eliminating the use of plastic straws, stirrers, cutlery and all plastic disposable packaging that accompanies these items at the stadium.
• Implementing a reusable beer cup scheme at the stadium where cups are collected after matches, taken off site to be washed, and then returned for further use.
• Carton water used by our players instead of bottled water at all home matches.

Details on our Nike Away and Third kits for the 2021/22 season will be released in due course.
