Carlton Football Club is pleased to inform its members and supporters the Club will be wearing an alternate clash strip in season 2019.
Collaborating with long-term partner Nike, the Blues have listened to their fans and will next year be playing in a predominantly white clash guernsey.
Carlton CEO Cain Liddle said the Club was pleased to be back in its traditional colours of navy and white, and acknowledged the feedback of fans throughout season 2018.
“We’ve taken on board the subsequent feedback received during the year from our members and supporters in relation to the grey clash guernsey, with the preference being to see the Blues play in our traditional navy and white.
“We’ve listened to our stakeholders and as we’ve done in previous years, we’ll be running out in a predominantly white clash jumper next season.”
While the Club’s preference is always to wear its navy home jumper, Liddle said requirements set by the AFL have meant this hasn’t always been possible, due to games in which there is a guernsey clash with an opposition team.
“Naturally we would always prefer to wear our iconic navy blue jumper, however we are directed by the AFL on when we are unable to do so, and clash games are an example of this. That being said, whenever we are unable to wear our traditional navy blue, we will be reverting to the traditional white clash,” Liddle said.
The Club will communicate which games the white clash guernsey will be worn once confirmed with the AFL.
