Wanderers unveil first ever home and away kits

Here they are! The Wanderers first kits for the brand new Canadian Premier League.

We’ve been waiting for this moment. And we think it was worth the wait.

Our kits couldn’t be more Halifax.

Ocean colours, waves with a club crest and pattern of the iconic star shape of the historic Halifax Citadel, which happens to be right next to our Wanderers Grounds.

“You can really feel the soul of Halifax through their design,” said Kouamé Ouattara. The midfielder got to model the new kit at a national unveiling in Toronto, alongside players from the CPL’s six other teams. “We’re proud to wear them.”

And just look at the colours. That sharp looking harbour blue for our home shirt and a slick aqua ocean for the away.

“We really hope our fans are proud to wear these colours,” said Wanderers Founder and President Derek Martin. “Working with Macron to design these kits that are customized and unique was a wonderful experience.”

Growing up in Halifax, getting to show off the away kit at the Toronto event was something else for 18-year-old midfielder Scott Firth.

“Our jerseys fit the Halifax theme very well and they look great,” Firth said.

We also get to wear the classic VW symbol on our shirts with the automaker becoming our shirt sponsor, in addition to being one of the founding sponsors of the CPL.

When people got their first glimpse of our players in the new kits at our event at Halifax’s Museum of Natural History last night, there were cheers like the Wanderers had scored a goal.

“It was a really nice reaction,” said the club’s Colombian striker Luis Alberto Perea, who was in the away colours at the Halifax show. “It makes us really excited to get the season going.”

And our season is now less than a month away.

The first look at our jerseys in a CPL match will be on April 28 when we suit up against Pacific FC in B.C., with us debuting our home colours the weekend after, on May 4 against Forge FC.
