Queens Park Rangers have launched their new home and away kits for the upcoming 2012/13 season. QPR narrowly escaped relegation on the final day of the season, losing to Manchester City but surviving the drop because of Bolton draw at Stoke.
The kits are manufactured by Lotto and will have Air Asia as their main sponsors on the kit. The airline’s logo will appear on the R’s home, away and third shirts. AirAsia initially announced that the airline will be the Official away and third kit sponsor of QPR for the 2011/12 season. The relationship has developed and grown over the past season in the Premier League, and it was a natural progression to become the full kit sponsor.
Created by Lotto’s Research and Development Centre in close co-operation with QPR, the new Lotto home shirt stands out for its sleek and sober design with the traditional hoops in reflex blue and white. The shirt has a fitted shape fit and is made of Poly Double Mesh 10, an extremely lightweight, breathable and elasticated fabric that ensures maximum comfort and the least amount of fatigue during play. The shorts are all white with reflex blue details. As well as the Lotto logos on the side, the team shield stands out in a reduced size than on the shirt.
For the away matches Queens Park Rangers will wear an all red-and-white Lotto outfit featuring the same characteristics as the home kit. Both shirts sport a V-shaped neck and mesh insert on the chest for perfect perspiration.
