Spanish lower-league club unveil 'flesh-themed' kit that might just be the worst ever


CD Palencia have released a new kit for their upcoming promotion bid that leaves little to the imagination.

The club usually play in a purple home shirt but for their upcoming play-off matches will wear an 'inside-out' shirt and shorts combination that features the anatomy of the human body on it.

Well, it's... interesting.

In terms of a publicity stunt it has certainty worked - the kit was all over social media on Friday - and the players seemed happy enough when they helped unveil it.

It's hard to imagine too many fans wandering around the northern Spanish town in the kit though.

CD Palencia were founded in 2011 and are trying to be promoted from the third tier of football in Spain and the shirts, manufactured by Kappa, are available via the club's official website for 50 euros.

While the kit will surely go down as one of the worst ever, it is not the first time a uniform has caused a stir in recent times, after the Colombia women's cycling team wore a 'naked' uniform two years ago.

President of the International Cycling Union (UCI) Brian Cookson tweeted at the time to say the outfits were "unacceptable by any standards of decency".
