Victory reveal their 2019 AFC Champions League strip

On the eve of the start of their 2019 AFC Champions League campaign, Melbourne Victory have unveiled the playing kit for this year’s competition.

The design is remarkably similar to the Adidas strip the club wears in the Hyundai A-League but is emblazoned with a new sponsor specifically for the ACL.

Victory open their group stage campaign on Tuesday night with a clash against Korean outfit Daegu at Melbourne Rectangular Stadium.

Kevin Muscat’s men also take on Sanfreece Hiroshima of Japan and Chinese giants Guangzhou Evergrande in the group stage.

"It's an exciting tournament to be a part of," versatile Victory star Leigh Broxham said on Monday.

"The years we haven't been involved you miss it. You envy the teams that are playing it.

"Being in it is a privilege for clubs."

Victory heads into the clash in patchy form, having failed to win any of their last four games in the Hyundai A-League.

They are likely to be boosted by the return of Swedish FIFA World Cup striker Ola Toivonen, while Japanese star Keisuke Honda is set to make his first-ever appearance in the ACL.
