During this most difficult time for the country, we have been proud to recognise the many Blues supporters whose incredible work has kept the nation going.
In the lead-up to the Stoke City fixture, we surprised some of them with a special gift to show our gratitude – the new 2020/21 Blues third shirt, which had been kept completely under wraps until Sunday.
The limited-edition green shirts were printed with a tribute message beneath the badge:
“Thank you, key workers. Keep Right On!”
In a unique launch campaign, the key workers helped us reveal the shirt with their own images across social media – see a selection of these photos below.
Like her fellow recipients, Carol Sandland, who works in the Emergency Operations Centre for West Midlands Ambulance Services, was taken aback by the delivery.
“I got home from my 12-hour shift to find the secret third shirt waiting for me! I couldn’t believe it,” said Carol, proudly pictured below in front of the ambulance.
“I’m really humbled by the Club's generosity and feel honoured to receive the shirt just for doing my normal duties during an abnormal time! I'm most certainly a proud member of #TeamGreen in every way!”
Join Carol and the other key workers by getting your hands on the third kit now!
