Following their promotion from the Championship at the end of last season, West Bromwich Albion have revealed their new Umbro home and away kits for the 2010/11 Barclays Premier League season. According to the Baggies’ website:
Both shirts sport the logo of new principal club sponsor HomeServe, highlighting the home emergency repair expert’s new phone number: 0800 247 999.
The away kit will be worn for the first time by Roberto Di Matteo’s men in Saturday’s pre-season friendly at Kidderminster (ko 12.30pm).
Both shirts are made from woven fabric and the new blue-and-white striped home shirt features ‘zig zag’ detailing and a classic-style collar to give a modern touch to the Baggies’ traditional design.
The shirt will be worn with white shorts and socks and donned for the first time by the players against VVV Venlo in Holland on Saturday week.
The new away kit is all black, with the crew neck shirt featuring a subtle shadow stripe and a monochrome version of the club crest.
