Football Shirt Culture

Coventry City have revealed the new home kit by Hummel for the 19/20 season.

The shirt is inspired by the classic designs of the 1980s, when Hummel first provided kits for Coventry City, and are bespoke to the Sky Blues.

The home kit features a Sky Blue and White contrast gradient design, and includes the famous Hummel chevrons on the arms.

Coventry City have also teamed up with hummel to launch ZEROH2O.

Normally, it takes 25 litres of fresh clean water to dye just one single football shirt, and every two years, it takes the entire volume of the Mediterranean Sea to colour the world’s textiles – which is simply not sustainable.

The new ZEROH2O concept sportswear – introduced by Coventry City and hummel this season - will see zero water consumption and zero waste-water discharges – setting a new standard for eco-efficiency and reducing energy consumption by 50%. The new initiative fits well into hummel’s overall mission to change the world through sport.

Well done to Coventry for winning the best football shirt of the year.

  1. Grimey

This shirt is amazing, I haven’t seen a better shirt for a very long time. I shall be purchasing one

Refreshingly understated sponsors logo that doesn't take anything away from the kit. ???

They're supposed to be applauding hands not question marks.


Have got to agree with Tony , that shirt is absolutely beautiful, their fans have much to be disgruntled about but they'll be the best dressed this season , great job Hummel

WOW... takes me back to that diving, flying Keith Houchen header at Wembley!

If only she shorts were dark blue...

Except we wore blue and white stripes that day and the kit wasn’t made by Hummel.

What an amazing kit, throwback to the Hummel 80s days, the best new shirt I’ve seen this season by far?

  1. MrTito

Bloody marvellous home and away. Other manufacturers should take note

  1. Plook

Absolutely hideous! Only joking. It's a beauty. Evokes memories of Preben Elkjaer at Mexico '86, and Trev is spot on; Houchen's flying header. Very tastefully and subtly put together. Coventry fans couldn't wish for better.

  1. Lady Godiva    Plook

We never wore a Hummel shirt like this in the cup final when Houchen scored that header

  1. Plook    Lady Godiva

Damn. You're right. It was the blue and white vertical top. That's weird. I even remember watching it live. Was that the previous kit, then? The years certainly roll by. Please forgive this foggy old memory.

That's the wrong shade of blue for St. Andrews

Absolute masterpiece, well done Hummel. In a year of bland and awful kits this really shines through! Wish I supported Coventry.

What an amazing home shirt for a team that doesn’t actually have its own home.

  1. Markymark

I was thimking about this kit. It’s a bit special. But it’s really unusual for a kit associated with failure, losing to Sutton in the third round of the cup, to be regarded as such a classic by fans of the team. Just goes to show what a great design the original was. And this is a stunning update of the original

What can you do with a plain shirt people say! I applaud Coventry's ability to go with different designs. Ever since the Admiral tramlines they have been happy to try out something different. I won't mention the brown away kit! The Talbot T is just one example. As a West Brom fan I always enjoy playing Coventry, there is often a lot of goals- either way. Top design, keep them coming.


All other kit manufacturers should be sent to Coventry to see how it's done.

  1. BWFC till.....

Fantastic, I’ll buy one and I’m not a Coventry supporter! Well done, absolutely excellent.

  1. Cov

Kit of the season imo.
How they top that next season i dont know

  1. Floody1874

Coming from a Villa fan that is spectacular...... Well done Hummel

  1. NewryBlade

Got to say as a Sheff Utd fan that the home and away kits for Coventry City this coming season are by far and away THE best kits of the year. In fact the best of the past few years. Superb

  1. Daz. Leicester

Proper Cov kit.?

  1. Daz. Leicester

Great kit don't no where the question mark came from.

This. Kit. Is. Fucking. Brilliant.
Adidas, Nike, Puma, take notes. Hummel have really bossed it.
Wiz Khalifa would like the away kit coz it’s black and yellow

  1. Franko

One of the best shirts I’ve seen so far. Would be a 10/10 but loses a point for that cheap stuck on badge. Should have a woven badge

  1. Likey

The best kit this year by a mile. Give Hummel and Coventry the title now of greatest kit of the year
