The same source said that "retro" is the key theme for the West Ham 2023-2024 kits by Umbro.

October 12 2022: West Ham to Sign Nike Kit Deal From 2023-24?

West Ham could sign a kit deal with Nike for next season, specialized site Hammers.news report.

As reported by the West Ham outlet, there are rumors "in West Ham circles" about the current Umbro deal not being renewed and ending after the current, 2022-23 season. It's worth noting that the most recent official update we got on the Umbro West Ham deal, for a "long-term" extension back in 2020, did not mention any expiry date. The previous deal was confirmed to last until 2022-23 when an extension was announced in 2019.

Prior to the announcement about the Umbro deal being extended, there were already rumors about Nike potentially taking over in 2020-21, Hammers.news state.

The rumors about Nike signing up West Ham seem quite vague at the moment, considering that we don't even have confirmation of the Umbro deal expiring, but they are worth to keep an eye on in the future.

In addition to Nike, the site also note that there has also been speculation about Castore, who already provide kits for Aston Villa, Newcastle and Wolves.
