THESE excited Black Cats fans were among the first to get their hands on their team’s new kit.
Sunderland AFC, in partnership with adidas, launched the away strip at the Stadium of Light.
The event also saw the opening of the club’s new store.
The first three fans through the door won a personalised Sunderland shirt and, as an extra treat for supporters, Sunderland 1973 FA Cup legends Jimmy Montgomery, Dick Malone and Bobby Kerr also made an appearance.
Jimmy said: “The release of the new kit is always an exciting for fans and it was great to see them.
“Myself, Bobby and Dick were pleased to be invited down on an occasion like this. The new kit is wonderful and the shop looks great.”
A new range of training kit was also officially released to the public. Full details at www.safcstore.com.
