Ipswich Town Football Club have revealed the new 2020/21 Home Kit by Adidas
As the Club head into the 40th season celebration of the famous 1980/81 triumph in the UEFA Cup, Blues have worked alongside technical kit partner adidas to develop a shirt with more than a nod of recognition to Sir Bobby Robson’s successful team.
For the first time since 1995, Town’s home kit carries the historical badge which adorned the shirts on that famous night in Amsterdam. The one-off embroidered crest, which includes celebratory 'UEFA CUP 40 YEARS' insignia, is also added to the 2020/21 home goalkeeper kit too.
Sir Bobby famously described the 1980/81 team as 'his greatest ever Ipswich team – the perfect jigsaw’. This quote is added to the inner back-neck of all adult and junior home shirts.
The Rank Group Plc, who owns Magical Vegas, has ‘gifted’ the front of shirt sponsorship to the charity, Carers Trust.
The shirt will carry an updated EFL name and number font, once again supporting the EFL’s charity partner, Mind. As reported earlier in the year, fans will also have the opportunity to add the ‘Thank You NHS’ charity logo to the back of their shirt, with all profits raised being added to the fundraising efforts for the local NHS Ipswich & Colchester Hospital’s Charity.
A white ribbed rounded v-neck, white sleeve cuffs and adidas’ signature three-stripe shoulder detailing complete the new look shirt.
The kit sees a seasonal change to blue shorts, with white trim, and a refreshed blue home sock with white turnover trim. The new shorts are once again reminiscent of the second-leg of the final against AZ ’67 Alkmaar in '81.
The Mortgagemove.co.uk brand sits prominently on the shorts. Company Principle, Nick Golding, said: ‘‘We are delighted that the Mortgagemove.co.uk logo adorns the new kit which is a tribute to such a successful period in ITFC’s history."
adidas, Town’s technical partner since 2014, have manufactured the shirt using their sweat-wicking AEROREADY fabric, which is made with 100% recycled polyester to save resources and decrease emissions. Breathable mesh panel inserts under the arms of the shirt and within the back of the shorts also assist performance.
