As in 2016-2017, the Valais club will evolve with a tunic inspired by military camouflage.
Last season, especially before the interruption due to the pandemic, FC Sion players were regularly accused of mercenaries without consideration for their employer and the collective.
Coincidence or coincidence, the Valais club has just unveiled a “military” jersey, which players will wear during away matches this season. Another special feature: this is stamped with the historic logo.
From there to think that it is about a tunic intended to transmit values of solidarity, combativeness and respect for the institution? Contacted, FC Sion did not wish to provide more details on this surprising design. The mystery therefore remains unresolved.
This is not the first time that the people of Sedun have opted for military colors. During the 2016-2017 financial year, the team successively coached by Didier Tholot, Peter Zeidler and Sébastien Fournier also wore a camouflage jersey in the Swiss Cup. Which had been rather successful for her since she had reached the final (lost 0-3 in Geneva against Basel).
We can bet that the 2020-2021 version will allow Sion to take off in the Super League, Fabio Grosso’s troop showing for the moment three draws and one defeat in four matches.
