Tottenham Hotspur have unveiled their new home kit for the 2021/22 season which celebrates the 100-year anniversary of the iconic cockerel's inclusion on their shirts.
The cockerel was first printed on Spurs' shirts back in the 1921 FA Cup final, in which Jimmy Dimmock scored the only goal in a 1-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers.
100 years later, the cockerel is the main focus of the new home kit, which will feature the famous emblem on the inside of the collar.
Manufacturers Nike have gone for a simple, classy look to celebrate the 100-year anniversary, giving Spurs a base white jersey with no pattern, simply the Spurs emblem, Nike swoosh and AIA sponsor logo. The kit is completed with navy blue shorts and socks.
To continue the celebrations of the cockerel, the first 1,921 fans who pick up the new shirt will also receive a limited, special edition Cadbury chocolate bar, but the real treat is the all-new anniversary printing which has also been released.
Fans will have the chance to purchase the new home shirt with a special 'Spurs, 100' printing on the back, with the cockerel playing a large part in that design as well.
As part of Nike's Move to Zero campaign to protect the environment, the shirts are manufactured using recycled polyester obtained from discarded plastic bottles - something Spurs are passionate about after being named the Premier League's greenest club by a study carried out by BBC Sport and the UN-backed Sport Positive Summit.
Fans had been expecting to see this shirt in action on the final day of the Premier League season against Leicester City, only for the release date to be pushed back until after the campaign was over.
Instead, Spurs stuck with their previous kit, which appeared to work wonders for them as they roared to a stunning 4-2 victory over Leicester which earned Ryan Mason's men a spot in the Europa Conference League ahead of rivals Arsenal.
