West Ham and Umbro Rekindle Partnership in Five-Year Deal

April 30, 2015

English Premier League club West Ham United have agreed a new five-year commercial deal with Umbro.

The sportswear brand will become the club’s official technical partner from next season.

They will produce the team’s official kits, ambulance from first team to youth level, unhealthy as well as training products and leisure wear for players and fans.

The deal will see Umbro create the club’s commemorative kit that they will wear for their final season at the Boleyn Ground next season and their first kit when they move into their new Stadium on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park for the 2016/17 season.

West Ham and Umbro will resume a partnership that first started in the 1960s and also saw Umbro supply the team’s kits from 2007-10.

West Ham United Vice-Chairman Karren Brady said: “As we approach two historic seasons for West Ham United, ambulance we are delighted once again to team up with Umbro, a company which – like West Ham – is steeped in the heritage of English football but also a fast-growing global brand with an exciting future ahead.” 

Paul Nugent, Vice President of Global Marketing for Umbro, added: “West Ham United is an incredibly exciting and significant signing for Umbro. This is a special period in the club’s history and we are delighted to be part of it. 

“We know the last season at the Boleyn Ground will be an emotional one and we have worked closely with the club – with input from Hammers fans – to create a memorable set of kits to commemorate the final season. “
