Charlton's brand new bespoke home kit for 2017-18, designed with the help of supporters, has been revealed and women's 1st team players Kim Dixson and Grace Coombs were at the launch
The red home jersey, the first created by the club's new kit manufacturer hummel, features distinctive white chevrons on the sleeves, and a sports fit, vented neckline and includes a number of details which pay tribute to the Addicks' 25-year anniversary since returning to The Valley.

As well as every player who represented the club during the historic 1992-93 season having their names printed within the neck buggy on the inside of the shirt, Charlton's famous badge is supported by a special scrollwhich reads 'Back at The Valley', identical to that which was seen on the front of the shirt when the club returned to SE7 against Portsmouth on December 5th, 1992.

The front of the jersey also has an embossed Charlton sword in the lower left section of the jersey while the lower back contains a larger 'Back at The Valley' scroll embossed above the hem of the shirt.

The kit is completed with white shorts that, for the first time in five years, are once again trimmed in red and gain feature the iconic hummel chevrons in red. The strip is finished off with red socks with a white trim and hummel detailing.

Tom Sinclair, Sport Market Manager for hummel UK and ireland said: "Charlton Athletic is a club with a proud history and it was very important for us to keep that at the forefront when designing the club's kits for next season. The input we received in our consultation with Charlton fans was vital and we're very pleased with the kits the first team, academy, Community Trust and Women's teams will be wearing for 2017-18"

Charlton CEO Katrien Meire added: "The new look kit looks fantastic and pays tribute to Charlton's proud history. We're grateful to hummel for putting in the time and effort to make surethe kit and the little details in it are relevant to the club"

This is the first year of a five year partnership between hummel and the club and as part of the deal the kit will be worn by Charlton Athletic's Women's team, who were represented at the launch by Captain Kim Dixson and defender Grace Coombs.

Charlton Athletic women's chairman Stephen King said: "We're very pleased to be wearing the new red kit this season. It's a lovely kit and the fact we're all in it further unites the Charlton family".

Aspart of the partnership, hummel and Charlton will create and give away 1,125 kits to 75 local primary schools, including all 48 schools in the club's Partnership Scheme. This supports the club's broader strategy to drive the awareness of Charlton with young Greenwich residents to support the growth of the club's fanbase.
