This is the new Hull third jersey.
The Hull City 2022-23 third kit features a 'blackout' design with tonal stripes and an all-black club badge. Similarly, the Umbro and sponsor logos are also applied in black, creating an understated overall look.
A spokesperson for Hull said: "The decision to extend the use of the kit into next season is an apology to those fans who haven’t been able to get their hands on one yet."
The 21-22 Hull City away shirt has already been sold out twice due to its popularity among the supporters.

Also from England, FC Brentford recently announced they would be carrying over their current home shirt for the 22-23 season. It goes without saying that using kits for more than one season is more sustainable for the environment.
In the current era of football kits, most clubs release around 5 kits or more (home, away, third and GK's) annually, resulting in an absurd amount of production. Also, some amazing jersey designs, which could be enjoyed for longer, are too quickly put in and out of use.
It would be nice to see more teams go back to occasionally carrying over shirts, the way Leverkusen, Schalke and Nürnberg did in the 2010's.
