UMBRO, the global football brand and Official Kit and Ball Supplier to The Football Association, has today revealed a brand new collection of England performance products.

The collection features the introduction of UMBRO's new 'Control' technologies used in the England Home Kit, the new England football, and next generation performance footwear, to be worn by England stars John Terry and Michael Owen.

 The new England kit, matchball and boots will go on sale on 6th February 2007.

The new UMBRO England Home Kit and England X Ball II will be on show for the first time when England play Spain in a friendly fixture on Wednesday 7th February.

UMBRO's new X Boot Destroyer will also make its debut as England captain John Terry aims to keep the Spanish strikers at bay!

England players will be sporting a highly advanced shirt featuring UMBRO's new Climate Control Technology, incorporating a new and unique fabric called 'Trilogy'; a 3 stage thermodynamic performance material, tested at Loughborough University's sport science department. This new fabric controls the microclimate between the skin and the fabric helping to regulate the body's temperature.

Traditionally most sports fabrics attempt to manage solely moisture. UMBRO's new 'Trilogy' fabric now controls vapour, moisture and heat.

- 1st stage: Moisture vapour is produced before sweating. However cotton fibres in the 'Trilogy' fabric absorb this vapour which slows heat build up, allowing the skin to breathe naturally.

- 2nd stage: The body naturally creates sweat as a cooling system. The new 'Trilogy' material helps disperse moisture away from the skin, to the outer surface of the fabric with specially coated synthetic yarns.

- 3rd stage: Once hot the skin needs to be cooled. Special engineered 'pores' allow any excess body heat to escape through ventilation, which helps control your temperature.

The new design has strong visual dynamics with clever attention to detail. The red shoulder flash evokes the Cross of St. George, whilst the side panel incorporates the Three Lions as a graphic print. A holographic gold star is positioned centrally above the dominant England crest in reference to the World Cup victory of 1966. Modern construction techniques include laser cutting across the shoulder and thermal bonded cuffs increasing comfort levels for players and fans. The all important stamp of authenticity is embossed directly into the fabric.

Alongside the new England Home Kit, UMBRO has developed the second generation of England X Ball which will be used in all England home matches. The England X Ball II uses a striking symmetrical design to increase visibility of the ball's flight in all types of light. The new England match ball has been designed to be used by all England teams at the new Wembley stadium in 2007.

John Terry, England Captain and defender said:

"I've been involved in testing all of UMBRO's England products. The X boot Destroyer is ideal for me as a defender because they give protection to all the important parts of the foot. Design wise, I think the new boots and X ball II look great with the new kit."
