Owls unveil new home kit

Sheffield Wednesday this morning unveiled their Sondico home shirt for the 2014/15 season – featuring sponsorship by ‘Azerbaijan Land of Fire’.

The club confirmed the sponsorship this morning and described the deal as ‘independent’ to Hafiz Mammadov’s takeover which is “hoped to be completed over the next few weeks.”

The shirt will be worn for the first time when the Owls take on York City in a pre-season friendly at Bootham Crescent tomorrow afternoon, while it will go on sale during the club’s Owls in the Park event on Sunday, which the new away kit set to unveiled next week.

As ever there has been plenty of speculation over the summer, with several designs leaked but the ‘back to basics’ home shirt is sure to be popular with Wednesday supporters.

On the sponsorship deal, Hafiz Mammadov said: “This is a very proud day for myself and my country. To marry ‘Azerbaijan Land of Fire’ to a club with the history and heritage of Sheffield Wednesday in English football is the perfect match.

“Having already established sponsorships with RC Lens in France and Atletico Madrid in Spain, this affiliation with Sheffield Wednesday takes Azerbaijan into the City of Steel, the home of where this wonderful game began.

“The global impact of Azerbaijan will only be enhanced by partnering with a club that has the worldwide reach of Sheffield Wednesday.”

Owls chairman Milan Mandaric added: “We are absolutely delighted to announce ‘Azerbaijan Land of Fire’ as the club’s new shirt sponsor.

“Sheffield Wednesday will gain major added value through this exciting partnership, as will the country of Azerbaijan.

“Brand association with the likes of RC Lens and Atletico Madrid takes us into new territory and I look forward to seeing the players wearing the shirts for what both parties are sure will be a memorable season ahead.”

A young Owls side were beaten 4-2 by Sheffield FC last night. The development side, led by Owls assistant manager and academy coach Lee Bullen, saw debuts for Paul McElroy and Ryan Croasdale, who bagged his first goal in a Wednesday shirt.

Lee Bullen said: “That was a ‘Welcome to men’s football’ at Sheffield FC this evening. Steep learning curve for a far less experienced squad this year but will be good to watch their progress.”
