Umbro extends as West Ham kit provider

UK sportswear manufacturer Umbro has renewed its partnership with English Premier League football club West Ham United.

As West Ham’s official technical partner, Umbro will continue to provide the London club’s playing kit until the summer of 2023. Umbro will also continue to produce training products and leisurewear for players and supporters.

The extended deal means that Umbro will be responsible for producing West Ham’s special commemorative kit for the 2020-21 season, which will mark the club’s 125th anniversary. Umbro officials recently met with a sub-group of West Ham’s Official Supporters’ Board to collect ideas and feedback for the commemorative design.

Umbro has been West Ham’s kit manufacturer since the 2015-16 season and replaced German sportswear company Adidas in the role.
