The new, bespoke design gives a nod to the infamous ‘tiger skin’ shirts worn between 1992 and 1995 on the front body, in a move away from the predominantly striped jerseys that have been seen in recent years. Also featured is the Club’s new crest, which has been introduced following a supporter-led redesign process, while the back of the shirt hosts a ‘Tigers’ sign-off just below the round collar.
The new shirt will be accompanied by black shorts with amber contrast side panels, while amber socks with ‘Tigers’ lettering on the back complete the strip.
Speaking about the new home kit, Natasha Chapman, Brand Manager for Hull City, said: “We’re sure this new shirt will prove popular with supporters as we go for something a little different to previous years. We would like to thank Umbro for their support in delivering a unique design that references one of the most recognisable Hull City strips of all-time.”
Jonathan McCourt, UK Marketing Manager for Umbro, added: “This is a really exciting launch for the Club, as well as Umbro, as we go with a really bold graphic design across the front chest, and one that will hit a chord with the fan base as we give a nod back to the 90s. We hope the kit can create lasting memories on and off the field.”
The new kit will be on sale online and in Tiger Leisure stores from 9am on Saturday 29th June, with adult, junior, infant and baby sizes available.
Meanwhile, the Tigers’ new away kit for the 2019/20 season is expected to be revealed next month.
