Umbro has furthered its support of Huddersfield Town today by agreeing to become the official supplier of base layers to the Club.
This deal, which is set to run until the conclusion of the 2012/13 season, will see Town’s players – First Team and Academy alike – wear Umbro base layers in competitive fixtures.
The addition of base layers is an extension of the British sports brand’s support of ‘The Yorkshire Club’; they already supply Town with home and away kits, training and bench wear after agreeing a deal in the summer of 2011.
The Manchester-based football brand is credited with inventing sportswear and sports tailoring and today the company combines its heritage in sports tailoring with modern football culture to create ground-breaking and iconic football apparel, footwear and equipment that blend performance and style.
Base layers are a great example of advances in apparel in modern football. Umbro’s advanced moisture management system draws sweat away from the body and base layers include engineered mesh venting to provide climate control, whilst maintaining flexibility and comfort for outstanding performance.
Huddersfield Town’s Commercial Director Sean Jarvis welcomed the extension to the partnership between the Club and Umbro:
“We have welcomed Umbro into the family of partners to Huddersfield Town and the relationship we have cultivated with them is proof that we made a great decision in choosing them to supply our kit over the next four years.
“Already we have worked together over and above the original partnership, with the two organisations teaming up on social media to give match tickets away. Umbro’s openness to new ideas and bespoke projects was a key factor behind forming our partnership.
“Base layers are one of the real stand-out developments in modern football and we are delighted that Umbro has supported us even further by agreeing to supply them to our elite footballers.
“Hopefully they can help the team on the pitch by giving them that extra percent in their performances."
