- Initial four year partnership announced
- Comments from Commercial Director Sean Jarvis
Huddersfield Town and Umbro will join forces again next season as the world-famous footballing brand teams up with The Terriers ahead of the 2018/19 campaign as the Club’s main kit supplier.
The Terriers, who wore Umbro kit as recently as the 2011/12 & 2012/13 seasons when the team was promoted from League 1 into the Championship, will once again wear the distinctive double-diamond logo.
Umbro will supply bespoke kit, replica and training wear for an initial four-year period, beginning with the 2018/19 campaign.
The Manchester-based firm currently supplies kit and training wear to more than 150 professional teams around the world, including fellow Premier League sides AFC Bournemouth, Everton and West Ham United.
Speaking about the deal, GLD Group General Manager Michail Scholz said: “We’re delighted that Huddersfield Town will be wearing the famous double-diamond again from the start of next season.
“They’re an exciting club and there has been recent history between our brand and the Club, during some successful years, and we hope that we can again create more memories for the fans on and off the field.
“I’m sure the passionate fans will love the bespoke kits we’ve created in partnership with the Club, and we’re all looking forward to seeing them being worn by fans and players in the coming months.”
“This is an exciting and important deal,” explained Huddersfield Town’s Commercial Director, Sean Jarvis.
“Umbro is known for producing high-quality kits for both international and domestic sides, and our supporters can look forward to unique designs which have been created specifically with them in mind.
“I am delighted that we will be working together over the next four years as I believe Umbro are the perfect fit to support our growth as a Club.
“The partnership has already developed and grown through a design process which has seen us finalise what we feel will be very popular home and alternative kits, accompanied by a high-quality range of training and leisurewear. We know that the quality and look of the kits are important to our fans and that has been at the forefront of our decision making.”
Huddersfield Town’s partnership with Umbro begins at the start of the 2018/19 season, with the Club’s new kits being unveiled in the coming months.
