Derby County will sport a new and unique look on their match shirts and shorts for the Emirates FA Cup Fifth Round tie against Manchester United at Pride Park Stadium on Thursday 5th March (7:45pm kick-off).
In a first for the club, the back of the Derby County shirts will be donned with the club’s official typeface on both the names and numbers.
Supporters will already be familiar with the BBG DCFC typeface which features in all areas of the club’s brand, including official club channels, RamsTV, merchandise, The Ram matchday programme and official club documentation.
With the number’s 3D design features inspired by Derby County’s 1992 home shirt, and the letters easily recognisable, the numbers also see the club’s iconic Ram centrally to the base, adding to the identity of the kit.
This specially designed names and numbers will be worn solely for the FA Cup clash against Manchester United which will see Wayne Rooney reunited with the club he scored a club-record 253 goals for between 2004 and 2017.
Following the game, these exclusive shirts will be signed and auctioned off with supporters able to bid to win a unique piece of club history.
Funds raised by the auction will be donated to Derby County’s charity partners; Derbyshire Carers Association, me&dee and Safe & Sound who are charities that support children within the Derbyshire community, all in their own individual ways.
