Levante UD 2011/12 Third Kit

The only embroidered element in the shirt is the crest.

'A future to conquer' and the centenary logo.

-Founded: 9 September 1909
-Biggest rival: Valencia CF
-The team's earliest games were played at La Platjeta, near the docks on a plot of land owned by a perfume entrepreneur. Its next ground was also near the port area, and the club gradually began to become associated with the working class.

During the time I spent in Valencia I found this at an outlet store for just 15€, and obviously bought it. This shirt has probably the worst quality I've ever seen. Absolutely every detail of the shirt, except the crest, is printed on the fabric, even the LFP patch, so at the first moment I thought it was a fake.
2011, just one year after their return to the first division, was the first time in the club's history it reached the highest ranking in the top division – in the process, they recorded seven straight wins after drawing the first two games. The club eventually finished in sixth position and qualified for the Europa League for the first time in its history. So it's nice to have a shirt from a season which Levante supporters might be proud of.

As I'm going on holidays, it will be difficult during the next month to keep posting on the blog. But it's difficult for me to forget about shirts, so I'll try to update my Twitter account (@s_footballshirt) as much as possible.
By the way, a really really really cool shirt from Thailand is on the way.
