Hammers buy British

Filed: Friday, 20th October 2006

West Ham's kit will be manufactured by British firm Umbro from next season.

The tie-up was announced in London this morning as the Hammers come to the end of their three-year deal with Reebok.

It will be the first time that West Ham have worn an Umbro kit - although the Cheadle-based firm did produce a kit for the club in the late 60s which was never worn.

Umbro have been making football kits since the mid-1920s, and their 'double diamond' logo is a brand now recognised worldwide.

As well as producing West Ham's new kit they also provide clothing for the English and Irish national teams, as well as a number of leading European clubs.
