The shirt (modeled above by striker John Aloisi) was made public today by chief executive Scott Munn who labelled it as ‘unique’ to the A-League.
“As a Club with traditional football values, we wanted an away jersey which captured the essence of what we are about as an organisation,” Munn said.
“And with the unveiling of our new strip, we are confident we have achieved that, while also introducing a design which is unique to the Hyundai A-League.”
The Heart also announced that leading global recruitment firm Drake International is the club’s sleeve sponsor.
“Melbourne Heart FC is delighted to have Drake on board as our sleeve sponsor for the next two years, joining the Club as we embark on this exciting journey,” Munn added.
“To have a company of Drake’s international standing commit to a significant partnership with Melbourne Heart FC is a huge vote of confidence for the groundwork we have completed over the last eight months.”
