Portuguese giants FC Porto have become the latest club to release a new pink shirt ahead of the 2014/2015 season after revealing this striking effort on their official website.

The shirt will made by Warrior and will be worn by Julien Lopetegui's side in Europe next season.

The bright pink jersey is supported by black detail, including two thin vertical stripes down the front of the shirt, and will be partnered by black shorts and black shirts.

According to the club's official site: "Warrior and FC Porto chose pink for colour, breaking barriers and reinforcing the exuberant style of the two times European champions.

"The combination with the colour black, chosen for shorts and socks, highlights the pink, becoming a symbol for passion and power FC Porto shows on the pitch."

The eye-catching kit also contains Warriors state of the art War-Tech fabric, which is said to: "Offer the players a bigger range of movements, while reducing perspiration at the same time, controlling the body temperature."

Porto have become the second major European club to release a bright new shirt in recent weeks, earlier this month Champions League winners Real Madrid revealed the away kit they'll be using next year.

Unlike Porto, Madrid have chosen to go all pink, with shirt, shorts and socks all coming in an unmistakable shade of pink, and all supporting kit suppliers Adidas' classic three stripe detail.

Richard Wright, CEO of Warrior Football, has spoken in detail about the decision to go bright with this offering, he said: "FC Porto is a club with a prideful legacy in Europe, which is why we developed equipment that reflected that winning spirit through changes
in colour and using the Warrior technology."

The kit manufacturers are slowly increasing the number of teams they supply, with Porto being joined by Liverpool, Sevilla and Stoke in wearing the company's designs.

27-time Primeira Liga winners will be hoping their bright new design will coincide with a bright new era on the pitch under new boss Lopetegui.

Having claimed seven titles in eight years prior to last season, the club were left hugely disappointed by a third place finish, and find themselves in the qualifying rounds of the Champions League after three years of entering at the group stage.

Thankfully for Porto fans their traditional blue and white striped home shirts has not undergone any drastic changes and will be instantly recognisable across Europe.

So what do you think of Porto's new third strip - pretty in pink or a bit of a stinker?
