    Umbro deal finally announced

    Post  Tony P on Thu 30 Apr 2015, 9:40 pm

    West Ham United and Umbro are delighted to announce a new five-year commercial agreement which will see the legendary global sportswear company become the Club's official technical partner from next season, producing all the Hammers' official kits, from first team to youth level, as well as training products and leisure wear for players and fans. 
     
    This means Umbro will take on the historic task of producing the special commemorative kit that West Ham will wear for the Club’s final season at the Boleyn Ground, as well as the kit the team will wear when playing for the first time at our magnificent new Stadium on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
     
    Umbro have a long-standing association with West Ham, having produced the Club’s first ever replica kits for sale to supporters during the 1960s, when they also famously designed the England kits worn by West Ham’s World Cup winning heroes in 1966. Umbro were West Ham’s official kit suppliers from 2007-10.
     
    West Ham United Vice-Chairman Karren Brady said: “As we approach two historic seasons for West Ham United, we are delighted once again to team up with Umbro, a company which – like West Ham – is steeped in the heritage of English football but also a fast-growing global brand with an exciting future ahead. 
     
    “It is especially fitting that – during our final season at the Boleyn Ground – our players and fans will wear a brand synonymous with one of the finest moments in West Ham’s rich history: England’s 1966 World Cup triumph.
     
    “It is our determination to bring back those glory days of the 1960s when we move to our magnificent new Stadium, and we look forward to doing so in partnership with Umbro, whose commitment to the highest standards of excellence and quality matches our own.”   
     
    Paul Nugent, Vice President of Global Marketing for Umbro, added: “West Ham United is an incredibly exciting and significant signing for Umbro. This is a special period in the club’s history and we are delighted to be part of it. 
     
    “We know the last season at the Boleyn Ground will be an emotional one and we have worked closely with the club – with input from Hammers fans – to create a memorable set of kits to commemorate the final season. 
     
    “Our kit designs for West Ham are unique to the club and celebrate the rich traditions of the club whilst incorporating all the modern performance properties required for today’s game. We’re looking forward to sharing our 2015/16 kits and hope players and fans will be proud to wear them both home and away.”
     
    Umbro already produce kits for dozens of major top-flight and international sides around the world, including Everton, PSV Eindhoven, Grêmio, FC Tokyo, Vasco da Gama and the Republic of Ireland.

    Can`t say I`m happy we have gone back to Umbro who I thought when we were first with them a few years ago the shirts were cheap and the Umbro badge stickers etc pealed off after about a month

    Gone from a decent shirt sponsor in Adiddas to a fupping awful sponsor in Umbro

    thought the last lot of Umbro was embroidered (macron was bloody shocking for the plastics)
    not keen on Umbro in their style of kit
    but the training stuff was top notch and lasted
