Umbro boosts Premier League presence with Hull deal

Manchester-based sportswear brand Umbro has agreed a four-year partnership to supply kit for English Premier League football team Hull City.

The brand had previously been the official kit supplier to Hull between 2007 and 2010 and will replace adidas when the new agreement takes effect from the beginning of the 2014-2015 season.

The deal includes all training wear for the Hull City’s men’s, women’s and academy teams. Umbro will also sponsor Everton in 2014-2015 and had previously supplied the Manchester City kit prior to their switch to Nike.

Hull was promoted back to the Premier League last season and is currently 14th in the standings with four games left to play this term. The team has also progressed to the FA Cup final, where it will meet Arsenal at Wembley on May 17.

Hull City wore Umbro kits from 2007 to 2010, a period which included their finest hour to date when club legend Dean Windass scored the winning goal to clinch promotion to the top English league for the first time in the Club’s history.
