Ipswich Town and Umbro launch new partnership as the world-famous footballing brand becomes the club’s main kit supplier ahead of the 2022/23 campaign
June 14, 2022
It has today been revealed that Ipswich Town Football Club and Umbro will be joining forces, with the football brand becoming the Blues’ main kit supplier for an initial four-year period.
Umbro has supplied kits for Town previously, most recently from 1989 to 1995. The Suffolk-based team will be rolling back the years as they once again don the distinctive double-diamond.
The deal, which begins for the 2022/23 campaign, will see Umbro supply the former UEFA Cup winners with bespoke kit, replica and training wear.
British heavyweight boxer and passionate Town fan Fabio Wardley helped launch the partnership in a video shared on the club’s and brand’s social channels. The boxer explained how the partnership reflects on the illustrious history of the club, while looking ahead towards an exciting future.
Jonathan McCourt, Head of Sports Marketing – UK Football, Umbro, commented: “We’re so excited that Ipswich Town will be wearing the famous double-diamond once again.
“There is so much shared history between Umbro and Ipswich, and we are hoping that many more happy memories will be created as we join forces once again.
“We’re looking forward to sharing the club’s home and away kits with fans in due course, and we can’t wait to see them donning the jerseys in a packed-out Portman Road next season.”
Paul Macro, Head of Retail Operations at Ipswich Town, said: “We are delighted to partner with Umbro for the upcoming season and beyond.
“Umbro has excellent credentials having created high-quality kits for clubs all around the world. We are looking forward to showing our fans the eye-catching, bespoke design Umbro has produced for the club.
“We have high ambitions as a club, and we know that Umbro will be the perfect partner to support us in pursuit of our goals.”
