Umbro extends partnership with West Ham United

West Ham United have extended their kit deal with Umbro until 2023 – ending speculation that West Ham were set to announce a new kit supplier.

West Ham also announced that a special-edition commemorative kit will be launched in 2020-21 to celebrate the East London club’s 125th anniversary.

West Ham United Vice-Chairman Karren Brady said: “I am delighted that Umbro will be continuing to deliver quality products for both our players and supporters for at least the next four years.

“Umbro have a legendary status throughout the world game and a long-established association with our club, and we are proud to have them on board as part of the West Ham family.

“Umbro understand the identity and soul of West Ham United. They are passionate about designing bespoke products that benefit our players technically and also create a sense of pride and affection among our supporters.

“Their meeting with our Official Supporters’ Board recently to discuss the design of the commemorative kit for our 125th anniversary next year is a sign of Umbro’s commitment and dedication to being more than simply a kit manufacturer for West Ham United, and we look forward to continuing our fantastic relationship with them over the next four years.”

Sam Lucas, Head of Sports Sponsorship at Umbro UK said “This extension is really exciting news for Umbro and we’re proud to extended our deal with the club for the next four seasons. We feel that the Umbro brand has a lot of synergy with what West Ham stand for and that’s the reason why the partnership has been a success.

“We’re thrilled that we also get the opportunity to design and produce the 125th anniversary commemorative jersey, creating more lasting memories for the fans.”
