Hibernian FC revealed their 2020-21 Home shirt and announced that the club will proudly bear the words “Thank You NHS” on the front of their new shirts when next season does get underway.
The club decided to take the opportunity to express the thanks of the entire Hibernian and football community to the magnificent health service for the heroic, selfless and dedicated efforts of its staff during the coronavirus pandemic.
The club has spoken to senior management at both NHS Scotland and NHS Lothian, their suggestion has been warmly received, and the Hibs will be working in partnership with NHS Lothian and Hibernian Community Foundation to deliver a layer of meaningful communications, engagement and community service.
They are further delighted to announce that the first home league game will be “Thank You NHS Day” and will welcome hundreds of NHS staff along as guests.
The words of thanks will adorn the new home shirts, and supporters will be asked to pay the sum of £5 to have the transfer applied, with all profits being donated to the local NHS charity, Edinburgh & Lothians Health Foundation.
This mocked-up picture shows how the new kit will look with the message applied. The club will be announcing how to pre-order your shirt over the next few days and the orders will be fulfilled when the strips are available in July.
Leeann Dempster, Chief Executive, said: “Our front-of-shirt sponsorship is our most visible and valuable sponsorship opportunity and we thought this season of all seasons we needed to show our appreciation to the NHS. As Ron said, we want to say thanks and we want to help raise awareness and also raise funds for good health causes. We know our supporters will rally behind this in their thousands.
