(Friday 23rd March 2001 - revised Thursday 3rd May 2001)
The Wanderers new 'home' shirt for the next two season's was released at Wanderers in Town on Friday 23rd March and sales went well ahead of the FA Cup Semi-Final with Liverpool.
The shirt is manufactured by Wakefield based company Pro-Star. The four-year deal will kick-in at the end of the current season and comes after current kit manufacturers, Avec, went into voluntary liquidation at the turn of the year. Pro-Star are more renowned for their supply to grassroots football and the tie up with The Wanderers marks a rare venture into the Football League.
The return to the basic quartered design of kit appears to have gone down reasonably well with the fans and the kit has the added touch of having the words Chairboys embroidered on the back of the collar.
The kit was worn for the first time by the team in the Cup Semi-Final and the players were issued with a special edition which had the words FA Cup Semi-Finalists 2001 around the re-branded Wycombe Wanderers logo. The new shorts will be a matching navy blue although these weren't available in time for the cup tie with Liverpool.
Prices of the new kit are £39.99 for adult sizes 34" to 52" and £29.99 for child sizes 26" to 32".
A new 'away' kit will also be launched at the end of the season. The shirt will be all tangerine with navy panels under the arms. The shorts and socks will also be tangerine. The kit was worn for the first time in the final away League game of the season at Bristol Rovers on Wednesday 2nd May and will be on sale from Friday 1st June from the usual outlets priced the same as the home shirt.
