Fans will be happy to hear the news coming out of Everton today that the team kits will be made available throughout the United Kingdom soon, with other countries to follow presumably. For the last six years the sale of Everton official kits was only done through the two official club shops and online.
A joint statement released by Everton and supplier Kitbag says:
"The transfer of kits to JD Sports stores from Liverpool Airport to Manchester Airport, Aintree to Oxford Street in London, will begin this week, with kits being available to supporters from mid-October.
This season's traditional blue home shirt, white away shirt and green third strip, all manufactured by Umbro, have proven popular since going on sale in the summer and now, to make kits more widely available, they will be on sale in Liverpool, Manchester, Cheshire, Gatwick Airport and London branches of the popular high-street sportswear firm.
"The shirts will remain available online at evertondirect.com and in-store at Everton One and Everton Two."
Everton are in the second season of having their kit manufactured by Umbro.
