Blackburn Rovers unveiled the new 18/19 Umbro home kit, which is a celebration of the club’s proud heritage and origins.

The iconic and stylish strip sees the club revert to the original ‘Cambridge’ blue colours, which were worn when Rovers became founder members of the Football League in the 1880s.

The lighter blue design last appeared on Rovers’ home shirts during the 2014-15 Championship season and famously featured in the 1991-92 campaign, when Kenny Dalglish’s side triumphed at Wembley to secure promotion to the newly-formed Premier League.

This season’s kit, which features new principal sponsor 10Bet on the front, marks a return to the club’s roots, but with a fresh, modern perspective. The classy and clean design, which is sure to prove popular with supporters of all ages, is also embedded in Umbro’s brand values of heritage, tradition and tailoring.

Umbro UK Marketing Manager, Jonathan McCourt, adds: "This season, Umbro are pushing forward with contemporary designs, player-led performance insight and compelling club stories. The result is a truly exciting one – the history and origins of Blackburn Rovers.

"All kits are constructed in lightweight durable fabrics and executed with great fit, which can withstand the pressures of the modern game, whilst creating a wearable uniform for the fan. To aid comfort, ergonomic mesh panels have been constructed at the underarm, providing maximum breathability.

"In 1977, Umbro introduced the iconic running diamond to the field of play. In the following decades, the double diamond continued to adapt with the ever-changing face of the game. For the new season, Umbro’s taping story evolves, moving from the traditional to the contemporary – a fresh outlook on a football staple.”

Oh man, so close to being the perfect kit. Once again the ugly online gambling website sponsor logo ruins an otherwise great shirt.

Becoming a common theme now isn't it... really smart looking kits, ruined by a terrible sponsor!

I'm a Basel fan, so I never liked the Blackburn look because it reminds me too much of Grasshoppers. And now they look like some kind of ghastly combination of Grasshoppers and FC Zurich. I hate it.

Take note Nike . Umbro know how to design a classy kit !!!!! Not like your boring T-Shirts at rip off prices . Umbro are definitely back . Great kit .

Macron is shite ..
Nike is even more shite ..

Umbro Adidas Hummel Kappa
Best Football kit imho

 
  1. Dario2739    E Wood

As a Man City fan I can confirm that Nike kits are indeed really, really sh!t

 

Totally agree with E Wood.( ? ) . Best England kits always were Umbro . Who pays £60 quid for a white shirt that looks like it was designed at 4.55 in pub on a Friday evening ?

 
  1. Councillor Cox

Fantastic design let down by another ghastly betting sponsor, they could have st least matched the colours up ?

 
  1. E Wood

Hall of shame comments probably posted by some teams fans that wear a a shirt very similar to Aston Villa !!!!!Get a life you sad morons .

 
  1. Icon    E Wood

Or from Nike employees..

Claret and Who ?????

Awful sponsor ruins a great shirt

 
  1. Don Trump

That logo is like a giant zit on the face of a pretty woman

 
  1. wessex

Maybe a red v-neck collar and it would be perfect. Well done Umbro.

 
  1. Footyfanatic    wessex

I always loved the bit of red on their kits.

 
  1. Tony Blackburn

A nice design ruined by a black sponsor logo.

..at least make it fit in with the kits colours. Dark blue at least.

 
  1. Paulburn Rovers 1981

I like the lighter blue color on the shirt. But like most I don't like the sponsers logo on the front of the shirt. Other than that I have seem worse.

 
  1. MrBoro

This is class.

How good is the Rovers thing on the neck?! It's the seats in that old stand at Ewood Park. Is that new for this season of they had it before?

 
  1. BrianB    MrBoro

It's a new idea. In recent years we have had "Rovers" in the font of the Blackburn Rovers sign above the turnstiles. Rovers in the style of the seating in the Riverside stand is my favourite feature on this shirt. Classy.

 
  1. Cracker

Looks like a man city and Leeds kit combined ..
Verdict. Shite

 
  1. Chris Watson

Right shade of blue. Just needs some Claret.

Going Down Rovers.

 
  1. tom bola

Going to cause some confusion among refs. "So let me get this straight, you're all number tens?"

 
  1. colin phippen

really like it, a classic design

 
  1. NI Blackburn Fan

I am not a fan when we use the lighter colour but I can accept it because of the history. However the blue colour should ALWAYS be on the same side as the club logo. This is a Grasshoppers shirt with a Blackburn logo. Really dislike it!
