Watford FC let fans vote online for new Home and Away kits

Watford Football Club have announced a new kit deal with Joma for the 2009 / 2010 season, but while the kit has been designed, the colours have yet to be chosen. Watford have offered their fans the chance to vote for the 2009 / 2010 kit colours and have emailed their fan base to inform them of this opportunity.

There are 3 choices for the Home kit and 3 choices for the Away kit:

The choices will also be on the official Watford website shortly, voting will close at 5pm on 5th February and the winning designs will be announced at the end of the season.

New kits always prompt debate, so giving fans some opportunity to influence the design is an interesting way to go. Having a predetermined design and limiting the selection list also tends to be the best way of running these sort of votes. If everything is completely open then organisations can be left with egg on their face if the vote is hijacked, as with the UGC Doctor Marten boots competition or the 'Dietmar Hamann Wembley Bridge.'

So thank you Watford for giving us a choice and if you are a fan feel free to vote (just don't choose all yellow or blue!)
