This year’s kit collection is part of the fourth successive set of bespoke performance garments created by Umbro for the Club, showcasing all-new features and an updated design across playing, training and staff wear.
The Away shirt sees the reintroduction of the famous running diamond to the kit. First introduced in 1977, it was an iconic staple to Umbro jerseys for decades. 40 years after its first introduction the taping returns as a visual statement, now knitted into the body of the shirt using a lightweight jacquard technology removing weight and distraction for the player.
The design is a modern take on the traditional Club style, with predominately white jersey with impactful bold amber matt shine running diamonds on the sleeve and on the reverse of the shirt there is a stylised ‘TIGERS’ wording sign off.
The kit is constructed with great fit and bold styling at the heart of the design. Elongated articulated panels provide freedom of movement, with stylised hem and Club specific stitching details completing the look.
The white shorts are tailored for maximum comfort and movement, featuring contrasted knitted diamonds to match the sleeves of the jersey.
Double welt socks in white feature an amber band and adorned with the double diamond to complete a kit that matches the modern-day footballers’ high levels of performance on the pitch.
The new Away Kit is on sale from Tuesday 1st August for adults, juniors and infants and will be available to buy in store at Tiger Leisure and online at tigerleisure.com.
