Carlisle United and Umbro will join forces again next season as the world famous footballing brand teams up with the Cumbrians ahead of the 2017/18 campaign as the club’s main kit supplier.
The Blues, who wore Umbro kit as they won promotion back into the Football League in 2004 and also for 10 seasons through the 1970s and 80s, will once again wear the distinctive double-diamond logo from the start of the 2017/18 season as part of a technical kit partnership which will see Umbro provide all on-pitch and training product for the Cumbrian football club.
Anthony Little, Managing Director for Umbro, commented: “Carlisle are a club that Umbro has a good history with, however we like to look to the future so it’s great to renew that relationship and to help to create new moments for fans to celebrate in the new 2017/18 kits.
"We’ve worked closely with the club to design unique kits which combine the performance elements required by modern day players along with the stylish designs Umbro is renowned for.”
Phil King, Sales & Marketing Director for Carlisle United said: “This is a partnership that we are excited about. Umbro is a well-known and traditional footballing name who create modern, technically-excellent football kits, and we think our fans will be delighted to see their club associated with a brand of this level.
“The partnership has already developed and grown through a design process which has seen us finalise what we feel will be very popular home and away kits, accompanied by a high quality range of training and leisure wear. We know that the quality and look of the kits are important to our fans, and that has been at the forefront of our decision making.
“We’re looking forward to working closely with Umbro and launching the kits ahead of the new season.”
