ACF Fiorentina are making a strong impression in the 2015 2016 season. In addition to leading the way in the Italian Serie A after 12 weeks of competition, the Lilies seem like safe bets to progress to the knockout stage in the 2015 2016 UEFA Europa League. Fiorentina have been heading in this direction for awhile now: last season, they reached the semifinals of the Europa League (ultimately losing to eventual champions Sevilla) and fourth place in the Serie A. Could this be the year where the Lilies finally return to the top of the Serie A, or clinch their first-ever Europa League title?

At Soccer Box, we think that, when all is said and done, the 2015 2016 season could easily go down in history as Fiorentina's finest. With that thought in mind, we are now carrying the Fiorentina football shirts 2015/16, from new kit manufacturer Le Coq Sportif.

A New Kit Design

Fiorentina made a lot of changes ahead of the 2015 2016 season. Perhaps most notably, the Lilies sacked manager Vincenzo Montella, despite his successes with the club, and replaced him with Paulo Sousa. For another, instead of wearing Joma-made jerseys this season, Fiorentina's 2015 2016 season kits have been manufactured by Le Coq Sportif.

The switch in kit manufacturers has resulted in a simpler, more aesthetically striking line of shirts for Fiorentina. Where Joma's 2014 2015 jerseys made liberal use of trim and color accents (gold on the purple home shirt and purple on the white away kit), the new Le Coq Sportif shirts are a bit more spartan in design.

The Fiorentina home jersey 2015/16, for instance, is a darker purple hue than the Joma home shirt from last season. It also trades the noticeable gold trim for subtler, thinner lines of silver trim along the sides of the shirt, around the sleeves, and around the neckline. Similarly, the 2015/16 away shirt is a more basic white jersey, with the same narrow lines of trim in purple instead of silver.

This year, Soccer Box is also carrying Fiorentina's third jersey, which is a dark navy color with gold trimming.

The Le Coq Sportif Deal

Le Coq Sportif, a French jersey manufacturer, has considerable history in the football market, but hasn't Fiorentina Away Shirt 2015/16worked with many major clubs in recent years. In the 1980s and 1990s, Le Coq Sportif manufactured official soccer shirts for Tottenham Hotspur, Aston Villa, Chelsea FC, Sunderland, Sheffield United, Everton, and AFC Ajax. In addition, Le Coq Sportif were the kit manufacturers for more than a dozen national teams from the late 1960s to the early 2000s, including France, Italy, Spain, Uruguay, Argentina, and the United States.

In addition to a stint in the 1980s, Everton was a Le Coq Sportif team from 2009 to 2012. In the past ten years, the French kit manufacturer has also worked with Manchester City (2007 to 2009), Stoke City (2007 to 2010), and a number of less recognizable football clubs from countries like Japan and Korea.

In recent years, though, Le Coq Sportif hasn't had much of a presence in the football market that they Fiorentina Third Shirt 2015/16used to dominate. The company manufactures jerseys for a range of other sports, including boxing, tennis, and cycling. In fact, Le Coq Sportif is the official kit manufacturer for the Tour de France.

The 2015/16 season sees Le Coq Sportif returning to top-flight football. In addition to creating stunning jerseys for ACF Fiorentina, the company is also the official kit manufacturer for French club Saint Etienne starting this season. Just like Fiorentina, Saint Etienne are challenging for a spot near the top of their league this season. Perhaps Le Coq Sportif jerseys are good luck!
