Pic: Sunderland to wear once-off 3rd kit against Crystal Palace tonight
Sunderland only released two new kits this season, but have been forced to design a 3rd kit for tonight's match against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
Sunderland's home and away kits were deemed too similar to the Crystal Palace home kit and as a result, their kit manufacturers, Adidas have had to design a more neutral jersey ahead of tonight's Premier League clash.
The jersey will not be on sale to the Sunderland supporters so it's an even bigger collectors item. Here it is in all it's glory:

The traditional home kit of Sunderland is red and white stripes and their new away kit is blue and both were judged too similar to Palace's home kit of red and blue stripes. Have to say, we quite like the new third kit for Sunderland.
