Derby County Extend Umbro Kit Deal

Derby County today announced that it has extended its relationship with Umbro. The new agreement will see Umbro produce Derby's kits until the end of the 2021-22 season.

Umbro to Make Derby County Kits Until At Least 2021-22




Derby County enjoyed the greatest era in their history wearing the famous double diamond of Umbro, claiming the First Division league titles in 1972 and 1975 - as well as reaching the semi-final of the European Cup in 1973. The partnership was reignited in the summer of 2014.

Derby County's Chief Operating Officer John Vicars said: "We have very much enjoyed working with Umbro during the last three seasons. Umbro are a leading global sports brand and we've been extremely happy with the quality of service, in particular the kits we've worn during that time, which our supporters have positively welcomed. With this new agreement completed, we can now look forward to continuing the excellent working relationship we have with them for five more years."

Ewan Scott, Director at GLD Group Ltd, said: "We are very proud to renew our partnership with Derby County as their technical kit supplier for the upcoming seasons ahead. There is a lot of history between Umbro and the club and we hope that within this partnership period we can create some lasting memories for the fans, both on the pitch with the players wearing our product, and with the fans wearing the iconic logo."

The new Derby County 2017-18 home, away and third kits for the upcoming Sky Bet Championship season will be revealed 'in the near future'.
