Fans have took to social media with the claim to have spotted a swastika symbol on Birmingham City’s new away kit for 2022/23.
The season is just days from getting underway and with that in mind, kits need to be released, however the Blues latest’ jersey reveal has got everyone saying the same thing it seems.
A unique pattern is used across the front of a majority dark red kit, and it includes a black red gradient type cross, but fans see something like a swastika.
Despite this being mentioned across social media, it’s still a kit that is proving popular and sales are expected to do well.

The eye-catching number, which will be proudly worn by our Men’s and Women’s First Teams, as well as Academy and Development Sides, can be purchased online now and in-person at the Blues Store from 9am on Thursday 28 July.
Following on from last year’s throwback design, the Club’s latest release in association with the world’s leading footwear and apparel company is a nod to alternative strips worn during the mid-1990s, with a powerful red complemented by a navy neck and sleeve trim that runs into a graphic pattern across the front and lower back panels.
The jersey also features a woven production of Birmingham City’s iconic globe and ball crest, complete alongside the globally recognised Nike swoosh in a white colourway that is replicated on a side panel that continues onto red shorts, before navy socks sign off a fitting ensemble.
