Ghana Premier League champions, Accra Hearts of Oak have released their stunning new jerseys for the upcoming season.
Fans of the Phobians were treated to their first look at the new home and away kits during the official launch on Thursday at the World Trade Center in Accra.
Following the overwhelmingly positive reception to their jersey designs for their previous title-winning season, Hearts knew they would have to outdo themselves ahead of the new campaign as they defend their Premier League and FA Cup crowns.
And they did not disappoint.
The club’s patented rainbow colours make a return, given much prominence in the home kit.
Umbro’s designs blend the colours intricately with the home kit featuring the iconic, red, blue and yellow colours in vertical stripes.
The white away kits also include the club’s rainbow colours which fade in colourfully in strips near the bottom.
It’s safe to say attendees at the launch were very impressed by Hearts of Oak’s new threads.
The Board Chairman of the club, Togbe Afede said it was important that in such a key year for the club, “Hearts of Oak has returned to the top of Ghana football”
He added that the side was eager to “not only strengthen the brand of Hearts of Oak. We see an obligation as the country’s oldest club, to lead the transformation of Ghana football.”
“We know that ambition is not enough on its own to ensure success. Hard work is key and is an important value at Hearts of Oak.”
“We want to achieve success and more glory. We want to be counted among the best clubs on the continent.”
