Huddersfield Town umbroHuddersfield Town announced a new four year deal that will see British sports brand Umbro supply the Club with home and away kits, training and benchwear from the start of the 2011/12 season.

The announcement was made at Huddersfield Town's home fixture against Peterborough United on Saturday, with a number of mysterious videos on the Stadium's Big Screen - which also featured on the Club's official YouTube account - culminating in the reveal of an Umbro kit bag in the first team's changing room. The design and style of the Terriers new 2011/12 kits is being kept under wraps, with the unveil of the home shirt planned for the Club's home fixture against Brentford on 7 May.

"We are absolutely delighted to welcome Umbro and Just Sport into the Huddersfield Town family for the start of the new season," Jarvis explained.

"We had a large number of kit suppliers offer their services to us for the start of next season. The entire selection process has taken over 12 months and in that time we met with around 15 kit manufacturers, ranging from some small to very big brands; seeking references and investigating sales.

"We felt that Umbro's reputation for quality will add real credence to our retail kit offerings going into next season. Their association with the England national side particularly appealed to us and their brand values very much fit our own; they have a strong, proud heritage much like ourselves and they are proud of being British.

"Together we have worked very hard on the design and feel of next season's kits and I am confident that our supporters will be very happy with the new shirts, training wear and bench wear for the 2011/12 season.

"We cannot wait to get started and cultivate what promises to be a very exciting partnership for Huddersfield Town."

Martin Prothero, Senior Vice President of Football at Umbro, added:

"We are delighted to support Just Sport's new partnership with Huddersfield Town FC to be the club's official retail partner. We wish the Terriers every success in their quest for promotion to the Championship."

Thanks to Dave

Should be a good deal, Mitre are losing their touch.<br /><br />You just hope, for Huddersfield's sake that they don't use a crap template, but Umbro don't tend to do that. It'll be good to see what they do.

This article is very misleading, they have signed a deal with Just Sports, not Umbro. Huddersfield will just get a Umbro teamwear kit, just like the other lower league teams with Nike kit.
