Umbro '95' Exhibiton

Called ‘95, the new Umbro exhibition celebrates the influence of Umbro in football by displaying 95 of the brand's most iconic shirts while telling the story of the Double Diamond brand.

The exhibition features a lot of rare archive jerseys and jackets, alongside photos and the stories behind some favorite Umbro shirts, old brochures and adverts.

The Umbro ‘95’ exhibition is free to enter and will run from Monday 8th of April to Sunday 14th April at 23a Princess Street, Manchester, M2 4EN.

For that occasion, Umbro and local illustrator Tom Nicklin also created a huge mural to celebrate Manchester's love of football.
