Celtic and Adidas have revealed the Bhoys’ new home kit for the 21-22 season.

Using the tagline “Unbroken Hoops. Unbroken History.”, the Bhoys unveiled the kit, helped by Callum McGregor, Jacynta Galabadaarachchi and supporters.

The focus of the marketing material is on supporters, coming back into Celtic Park, and the club’s international reputation.

“It’s time to wear the four-leaf clover on your breast, and the Green and White upon your chest”, says McGregor, in the intense video. “I’ve always known about Celtic, even in Australia people know about Celtic and how passionate the fans are”, states Celtic Women star Jacynta Galabadaarachchi.

As for the shirt itself? Of the rumours and leaks so far, it appears that FootyHeadlines had the reveal two weeks ago. It quite closely resembles Celtic’s 15-16 kit, in terms of the two outer hoops supporting a thicker, “main” hoop across the jersey.

However, it comes with a much cleaner silhouette, and a rounded neck. That’s opposed to the 15-16 effort, which had a New Balance anachronism, a white V-collar.

For 21-22, the effort is just… tidier. There’s a crispness to the design, and the sponsors blend more into the design as opposed to the other way round. It’s already available to pre-order via Celtic FC.

This season’s kits will bring plenty of debate. While the dark green away offering has met more universal acclaim, the third kit has been met with a mixed response.

While the third offering is purposefully garish, as to avoid clashes, the home kit is a real test for any kit manufacturer. For the outside observer, you’d think it’d be hard to get the Hoops wrong.

Not the case. And with kit makers putting out a new trio of kits every season, it’s surely difficult to bring fresh ideas to a classic design.

From our point of view, though, this is a very tidy home offering, indeed. Last season’s yellow collar was smart, but keeping it as Green and White as possible just adds a sleekness to the design.

In truth, last season’s kits deserved better! Both Celtic and Adidas will be hoping for a more fruitful collaboration in 21-22.
