West Ham United has formally announced a new five year technical partnership with Umbro, starting from the 2015/16 season.

The Hammers are the latest top-flight signing for Umbro joining the likes of Everton, PSV Eindhoven, Grêmio, FC Tokyo and Vasco da Gama.

Umbro will produce all West Ham’s playing and training product, from the first team to youth teams, as well as leisurewear for players and fans. 

The first year of the partnership will be West Ham’s final season at the Boleyn Ground, which has been their home since 1904. 

West Ham will then move to their new 54,000 capacity stadium on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park for the 2016/17 season.

Umbro first produced replica shirts for West Ham in the 1960s, the decade which saw the rise of Hammers legends including Bobby Moore, Martin Peters and Sir Geoff Hurst, who wore Umbro shirts when winning the World Cup with England in 1966.

Paul Nugent, VP of Global Marketing for Umbro, commented: “West Ham United is an incredibly exciting and significant signing for Umbro. 

“This is a special period in the club’s history and we are delighted to be part of it. We know the last season at the Boleyn Ground will be an emotional one and we worked closely with the club during the design process to create a memorable set of kits to commemorate the final season. 

“Our kit designs for West Ham are unique to the club and celebrate the rich traditions of the club whilst incorporating all the modern performance properties required for today’s game.

“We’re looking forward to sharing our 2015/16 kits and hope players and fans will be proud to wear them both home and away.”

West Ham United Vice-Chairman Karren Brady said: “As we approach two historic seasons for the club, we are delighted once again to team up with Umbro, a company – which like West Ham – is steeped in the heritage of English football but also a fast-growing global brand with an exciting future ahead. 

“It is especially fitting that – during our final season at the Boleyn Ground – our players and fans will wear a brand synonymous with one of the finest moments in West Ham’s rich history: England’s 1966 World Cup triumph.

“It is our clear ambition to bring back those glory days of the 1960s when we move to our magnificent new Stadium, and we look forward to doing so in partnership with Umbro, whose commitment to the highest standards of excellence and quality matches our own.”

Was that not the 1994-1996 kit? <br /><br />Anyway, a retro shirt based on that kit would not work, for the simple reason that Arsenal had two bad seasons wearing that kit.

So, what does that mean? Like if they had a bad season they will have a bad season if they wear those shirts?<br />crap
