Have a closer look at Town's new home kit
- Town's new 2018/19 Umbro home kit revealed!
- The Terrier makes a return to the front of the shirt
- Shirts, shorts & socks on pre-order soon
The kit that Town’s players will wear at home during the 2018/19 Premier League season has been revealed!
The shirts, shorts and socks, modelled above, were first revealed by the Club’s new record signing Terence Kongolo today.
The new shirt, which features the distinct new logo of new shirt sponsor OPE SPORTS and new sleeve sponsor Leisu Sports, is the first kit to be revealed since the Club signed a new partnership with Umbro.
The biggest news from the reveal is that, for the first time in nearly 50 years, the Terrier makes a return to the shirt in its new, contemporary style!
Town first wore the Terrier on its kit for parts of the 1969/70 and 1970/71 campaigns after then-Chairman Frank Drabble introduced the nickname to the Club in his programme notes for a home game against Bolton Wanderers in late September 1969.
The Terrier was then introduced to the players’ shirts, which were previously plain, for a league game at Blackpool on 15 December 1969 and was worn on both the home and away shirts as Town gained promotion back to the top division on English football under Ian Greaves.
Iconic players such as Trevor Cherry, Steve Smith, Les Chapman, Roy Ellam, Geoff Hutt and Frank Worthington adorned ‘The Terrier’ as the team won the Second Division.
Now, with Umbro pushing forward with contemporary designs, player-led performance insight, and compelling club stories, the new Terrier has returned for the second Premier League campaign!
Although the new Terrier will appear on Town’s shirts this season, it has NOT replaced the current Huddersfield Town crest; that is still the official crest of Huddersfield Town and will continue to be used in all other areas.
In 1977, Umbro introduced the iconic running diamond to the field of play. In the following decades the double diamond continued to adapt with the ever-changing face of the game.
For the new season Umbro‘s taping story evolves. Moving from the tradition to the contemporary. A fresh outlook on a Football staple.
Town’s home kit is constructed in lightweight durable fabrics and executed with great fit which can withstand the pressures of the modern game, whilst creating a wearable uniform for the fan. To aid comfort, ergonomic mesh panels have been constructed at the underarm providing maximum breathability.
The Terrier and bold styling are present on the kit; this is always at the heart of Umbro overall strategy, complimenting the team pitch presence.
Umbro has recreated an iconic and classic Huddersfield Town striped home shirt for the for coming season. The crisp lines with white crest, running diamond and branding gives a clean on-pitch visual.
The shorts feature articulated side seams and side panels help to make the 2018/19 season shorts agile, whilst adding performance. The elasticated waistband gives support and security for the whole 90 minutes.
The kit will be available to pre-order soon ahead of going on sale in the Club’s retail outlets and online at htafcmegastore.com on Saturday 7 July 2018.
Please note that the OPE SPORTS logo cannot feature on children’s sized shirts.
