West Ham Announce New Long-Term Umbro Kit Deal

West Ham United and Umbro have just announced a new long-term deal that will see the iconic double-diamond brand produce West Ham's kits until at least 2023.

There had been speculation recently with Umbro going into the last season of their initial deal with the club, but it's now been confirmed that things are to stay the way they were.

West Ham have also confirmed that a special-edition commemorative kit will be launched in 2020-21 to celebrate the East London club's 125th anniversary. As part of their continued commitment to designing bespoke products for the club, senior Umbro officials recently met and consulted with a sub-group of the Official Supporters’ Board to collect ideas and feedback for the commemorative design.

West Ham United Vice-Chairman Karren Brady said: “I am delighted that Umbro will be continuing to deliver quality products for both our players and supporters for at least the next four years.

“Umbro have a legendary status throughout the world game and a long-established association with our club, and we are proud to have them on board as part of the West Ham family.

“Umbro understand the identity and soul of West Ham United. They are passionate about designing bespoke products that benefit our players technically and also create a sense of pride and affection among our supporters.

“Their meeting with our Official Supporters’ Board recently to discuss the design of the commemorative kit for our 125th anniversary next year is a sign of Umbro’s commitment and dedication to being more than simply a kit manufacturer for West Ham United, and we look forward to continuing our fantastic relationship with them over the next four years.”

Sam Lucas, Head of Sports Sponsorship at Umbro UK commented “This extension is really exciting news for Umbro and we’re proud to extended our deal with the club for the next four seasons. We feel that the Umbro brand has a lot of synergy with what West Ham stand for and that’s the reason why the partnership has been a success.

"We’re thrilled that we also get the opportunity to design and produce the 125th anniversary commemorative jersey, creating more lasting memories for the fans”.

The West Ham United 19-20 kits are set to be launched "in the coming months".
