Aston Villa Women forced to wear ‘wet-look’ Castore kit for WSL opener vs Man Utd despite major backlash

ASTON VILLA WOMEN will wear the club's sweat-heavy kit in their Women's Super League opener.

The WSL gets back underway today with the Midlands-based side kicking things off as they face Manchester United.

And the Villa players will be wearing the wet-look kit despite huge backlash.

Both the men's and women's teams have complained about the Castore shirt and say it impacts their performances.

The kit appears to retain sweat and become heavy for players.

On wearing the kit, Aston Villa Women's boss Carla Ward said: "It's up to the football club's legal team and Castore to discuss that and deal with that.

It's something I've tried to completely ignore as difficult as that is.

"The football club are in full control of that.

"They've been excellent with us, myself and the players around it."
