Tottenham Hotspur Release Third Kit in FIFA 13 (In Case You Didn't Notice)
Tottenham Hotspur, in conjunction with Under Armour and FIFA 13, launched their third kit in a stylish presentation by showing the club within the confines of EA Sports' soon-to-be latest release in the new duds.
Unfortunately, they promoted the release on August 29.
Considering there was less than 72 hours before the transfer window closed, you might have missed this cool idea for a release.
Spurs’ new third kit is a black and grey half-and-half combo that reminds one of the Blackburn home kit with a palate swap.
That might be an unfair critique, but what certainly is not unfair is pointing out that Under Armour needs to time the release better next time.
When they revealed their home and away kit earlier this year, I noted the fact that UA picked a weird time to release the new threads.
This time, UA, along with EA Sports, picked possibly one of the most congested parts of the news cycle in the calendar year to release the alternative kit to the public.
Today, September 3, would have been a great day to draw eyeballs to the new strip and the new FIFA game.
There would be little competition from the transfer window and, hey, everyone loves a good game preview, especially since the video shows Spurs having a field day with Manchester City.
For one, it is fantastic to see the return of White Hart Lane back to the latest console generations after it disappeared from XBOX 360 after FIFA 09.
Securing a deal with EA Sports is something that should further the exposure of the club. Having players from around the globe be able to see the Lane, even in pixelated form, is something that might draw the odd fan to playing as the club and possibly supporting them later on.
As for the kit itself, it’s certainly different.
While perhaps a little mundane in its color scheme, the two-tone design fits well and might be useful during the winter period for visibility purposes.
The yellow stripes on the sleeves and socks still confuses me considering it was on last year's black kit as well, even if it does work to bring a little vibrancy to the otherwise dull palate.
It makes more sense with the keeper’s kit being an all yellow design, and seems to nod back towards previous third kits that were all yellow.
What can most certainly be said about the third kit?
It’s not this.
I think we can all be grateful for that.
