Kent Spitfires 2022 Vitality Blast kit revealed
Premium sportswear brand Castore have revealed their designs for the Kent Spitfires’ T20 kit, as they defend their Vitality Blast title in the 2022 season. Paying homage to the Supermarine Spitfire from which Kent takes its name in limited-overs competition, the Spitfires’ shirts in this season’s Vitality Blast will showcase the speed, power and agility of the aircraft that redefined aviation in the mid-20th Century.
In a colourway comprising of Kent’s iconic navy blue and cherry red, Castore’s designers have worked extensively in partnership with the Spitfires to create a design that not only stays true to the history and culture surrounding the Kent Spitfires, innovation also sits at the heart of the T20 Champion’s teamwear with Castore’s signature high-performance fabrics and ergonomic construction present throughout.
After their success at Edgbaston last year, two gold stars proudly sit above the Kent Spitfires crest on the fully sublimated garment, with a design mimicking the curves of a Merlin engine from a Spitfire and the power the aircraft achieved in the skies above Kent.
Spitfires supporters will be able to order their 2022 Vitality Blast shirts in the coming weeks via a dedicated Kent Cricket x Castore webpage hosted by the Club’s Official Kit Supplier, with more details to follow in due course
Castore Director of Partnerships, Pascal Lafitte, said: “Castore are proud to be the technical partner for the reigning T20 champions with a kit design and fabric worthy of their title winning season.”
“It is paramount to Castore that our kit performs to help Kent achieve their technical best on the field, whilst carrying a striking design that embodies the heritage and community which make up the team”.
Kent Cricket’s Men’s Captain, Sam Billings, followed on from this saying : “I’ve been impressed by the ethos and attention to detail that Castore have had in our short partnership to-date and the Men’s squad are all excited to be playing in this kit in 2022.
“We’ve earned this second star on our playing shirts and we’re all focused to adding a third this season.”
Kent Cricket’s Director of Partnerships, Andy Griffiths, said: “This is just the start of the exciting partnership between Kent Cricket and Castore and we’re really pleased with the final design of our Vitality Blast shirts for this season.
“With an extensive training range and new kits coming for our Men in the LV= Insurance County Championship, Royal London Cup and a new kit for Kent Women, I’m sure our Members and supporters will share our excitement as we move into a new era of sportswear with Castore.”
