West Ham United revealed the new 08/09 home kit made by Umbro. Officially launched on Wednesday 30 July, the brand new Umbro strip is available exclusively via the club from the Lakeside Shopping Centre and Boleyn Ground stores.
To help fans young and old and of all sizes get their hands on the kit that will be worn by Alan Curbishley's men throughout the 2008/09 season, the two shops will open early at 8.30am on the launch day and also on Thursday 31 July.The claret and blue kit which has been made using Umbro's new Trilogy fabric, a thermodynamic performance-enhancing material designed to control vapour, moisture and heat. The new kit has a unique contrast v neckline featuring a white mock collar, solid sky sleeves and tonal striped jacquard throughout the main body.
The perfect complement to the already-released sky blue away kit released last month, the new home strip is expected to be equally popular for fans wanting to follow their favourites in style next season. The club shops and Megastore also have all the latest lines from the new Umbro training wear available - the very same athlete-inspired range that is being worn by Alan Curbishley's men during the pre-season tour of North America this summer.
