2017 Blueout Guernsey Introducing the 2017 Blueout guernsey. A tribute to a suburb.

Lygon. Rathdowne. Drummond. Elgin. Faraday. Nicholson. 

In honour of street names synonymous with the suburb that is the home of the Old Dark Navy Blues, the Carlton Football Club has proudly unveiled its limited edition 2017 ‘Blueout' guernsey.

A tribute to the suburb of Carlton, and in conjunction with long-standing apparel partner Nike, the new-look guernsey takes inspiration from the traditional bluestone appearance commonly discovered in heritage streets throughout the suburb.

With the bluestone look sublimated in the guernsey, the Blueout will see a navy monogram on the navy guernsey for the first time in the Club’s 153-year history. In a further change, the playing numbers on the back of the guernseys are keylined and the word ‘CARLTON’ is proudly displayed on the back of the jumper, replacing the crest which used to sit above the number.                                                                                    

The Blues will run out in the limited edition guernsey for their Round 3 clash at the MCG against traditional rival Essendon on Sunday 9 April. 

Exciting Blues youngsters Jacob Weitering, Jack Silvagni, Caleb Marchbank and Charlie Curnow recently showcased the guernsey around the streets of Carlton. 

Weitering said the new-look guernsey was a gift back to Carlton supporters.

“As players, it is important for us to find ways to acknowledge our members and supporters and this guernsey is a nod to our origins in Carlton as a suburb in which the Club was formed back in 1864,” Weitering said.

“Our supporters right across the country continue to give so much to us as a playing group. It’s only fitting that we will debut the guernsey at a game with such a historic and passionate rivalry against Essendon.”

Carlton Football Club would also like to acknowledge the support of long-standing apparel partner Nike for its significant efforts in the design of this limited edition guernsey.
