Yorkshire Vikings will wear their traditional colours of navy blue, light blue and yellow for the 2016 season after the club revealed its new kit for the NatWest T20 Blast competition, which gets underway at the end of May.

The shirt, designed by kit supplier Puma, features the logo of major partners Mazars on the front and includes the brand of Wensleydale Creamery on the back of the predominantly navy shirt.

After a number of seasons moving away from the traditional colour palette a return to the true fabric of Yorkshire, will be a major hit with supporters around the world.

Modelled by Yorkshire white ball captain Alex Lees, the new shirt combines performance and design, and draws sweat away from the skin and helps keep athletes dry and comfortable during play.

“The new kit looks outstanding,” said Vikings captain Alex Lees.

“With the return to a traditional look and feel, our supporters will love it. I can’t wait to lead the team out this summer wearing a smart looking kit. I’m sure it will be a major success and will sell well.”

Meanwhile, Yorkshire will wear a new cream shirt for the County Championship season. The shirt will be worn for the first time when the defending Champions take on the MCC in Abu Dhabi on March 20 in the four-day Champion County match.

Both shirts are available in store at Headingley Cricket Ground or online at www.yorkshireccc.com/shop now.
