Southampton will wear their alternative white kit for the EFL Cup final against Manchester United at Wembley Stadium.
Claude Puel’s men reached the final thanks to a thrilling 2-0 aggregate win against Liverpool in the semi-finals, to set up a clash with United at Wembley, which takes place on Sunday 26th February, kick-off 4.30pm GMT.
Confirmation that Southampton would be the away team for the final meant that José Mourinho’s side would wear their red home kit, with Saints needing an alternative to their usual red and white stripes.
Ordinarily that would see Saints turn out in their away kit of black and grey, however, the first-team squad asked the club if they could wear their change strip of white shirts, red shorts and white socks, to be as close as possible to the club’s traditional colours when they step out onto the pitch.
Although the white shirt is unavailable for purchase, the club hopes that this decision will enable fans to turn Wembley into a sea of red and white for Saints’ first League Cup final since 1979.
In order to help facilitate this all replica shirts will be reduced to £30 for adults and £20 for children* with immediate effect. Visit store.saintsfc.co.uk to purchase yours.
