Everton release 2017-18 training range ahead of new kit launch tonight

Is yesterday’s leak genuine?

Everton 2017-18 training kit

Everton have released images of their training range for the 2017-18 season amid speculation regarding the new home kit, due for release this evening.

The training wear carries the SportPesa sponsor logo for the first time. The African gaming company takes over from Chang beer after a club-record deal was announced on Monday.

Celebrities, sportsman and other special guests, including boxer Tony Bellew, wore the new training kit for a charity match at Goodison on Tuesday afternoon ahead of the launch.

Evertonians have been studying the images to see whether a supposed leak of the new home kit on social media is genuine.

The leaked images drew a decidedly mixed reception from the supporters, who felt it looked like a training jersey rather than the full kit.

None of the training gear images appeared to match the leaked kit though, which suggests it may is genuine.

New home kit tease

However, the shade looks different to a teaser image of the new kit released by Umbro last week.

All this adds to the feeling of intrigue and excitement ahead of the official release at 8pm UK time this evening.
