Tottenham released their third kit of the season and this one is very different to the normal third kits we have seen in recent years.
😍 Presenting our 2018/19 @NikeUK third kit!
— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) August 11, 2018
While Spurs have a traditional white and navy blue home kit and a dark and light blue combination for the away kit, the third kit features a lot of green, which the club calls as “Neptune Green”.
The release from the club also mentions that Spurs would be wearing this kit in our European games and the same was used in the first match of the season against Newcastle United.
The release also spoke about what the design aspects of the kit from Nike convey and there has been a lot of thought into this.
“At a macro level, the print on the shirt appears as a modern, asymmetrical pattern, blurring the lines between football culture and youth-inspired street culture. Looking closely, the pattern transforms into an aerial depiction of the Club’s locality in Haringey.”
While Spurs prepare for the season ahead, a number of fans were not pleased with the third kit and here are some reactions from Twitter.

How anybody doesnt like this is beyond me.
At least it’s not a template kit. I love it.

Very bad season in terms of kits this year

All three kids are utterly terrible. I used to hanker for Nike to become Spurs kit maker years ago, and now I just wish they’d go away…just another 3 years of this tripe 🙄

Think that the designers at @Nike must be gooners.
