PSG have unveiled their third kit for the 2022/23 season, which swaps around the colours of their home strip.

After controversially going with an all-blue home shirt last season, Nike restored the iconic stripe to the kit this year, with a white one featuring a red border going down the middle of it.

They have gone with a similar design for the reigning Ligue 1 champion's third kit, swapping the colours around.

White becomes the main colour of the shirt, with the stripe being predominantly blue with a red border around it.

As is the case with the home shirt, both the PSG badge and the Nike logo are at the centre of the strip rather than on either side of the stripe, while the French flag is on the cuffs.

"Designed as a contrast to the home shirt unveiled in June, the Parisian third kit draws on one of the club’s most emblematic shirt designs," an official statement reads.

"For the first time, the white shirt has a vertical blue band down the middle, edged in red. As has been the case for the last few seasons, the shirts worn by Paris Saint-Germain's players and supporters are made using 100% polyester from recycled plastic bottles.

"This new shirt will be worn by the men's football team and completes the club's kit for the season, after the unveiling of the home kit in June and the away kit in July."

It's a somewhat unusual third shirt in the sense that it's the same colour as the club's away kit. Given that, they'll never be obliged to wear it and will simply choose between the two kits when unable to wear their home colours.
