Port Vale kit database
Take a look at dozens of Port Vale kit designs over the decades (including home, away, goalkeeper and one-offs) with our kit database feature.
According to an official press release on the new Port Vale home kit design the club commented:
Produced by Errea in collaboration with Robbie Williams, the unique “V” patterned home strip takes on classic Vale colours in the form of Black and White, with Gold trim.
The design process was a team effort – Robbie Williams’ ideas were developed by the Port Vale team of Patrick Shanahan and Club Chair Carol Shanahan, with the Gaffer (John Askey) giving the final seal of approval for the kits to be worn by our players.
Fans will see the letters W, N, E woven into the design on the back of the shirts echoing the Gaffer’s ‘Want, Need, Expect’ mantra: If we WANT to win, we NEED to prepare properly and get everything right and then we can EXPECT to win.
Club Chair Carol Shanahan said: “Your club has led the way in supporting local communities across Stoke-on-Trent throughout the suspension of football fixtures.
“Now football is back, excitement for the new season is building and we hope the release of our home kit whets the appetite of our supporters.
“We’re thrilled with our collaboration with Robbie and Errea. The players love the design and we hope our fans will too.
“We are proud to be Vale. Proud to be Burslem. Proud to be Stoke-on-Trent. Roll on the new season!”
The club are also due to release an away kit and third kit design before the start of the new season.
