Last season’s English FA Cup finalists Hull City AFC have launched their 2014/15 home kit from new technical partner Umbro.
Here is a detailed look at The Tigers new kit (available soon at World Soccer Shop, UK Soccer Shop, Subside Sports and Kitbag) for the upcoming season along with a details on its design inspiration courtesy of Umbro.
As Hull City get set for one of the most exciting seasons in their history, we’re excited to be revealing the club’s new 2014/15 home kit. This afternoon, The Tigers will discover who they’ll face in the Europa League in just a couple of weeks, while fans are also looking forward to a fresh Premier League season around the corner, with some exciting new signings in Steve Bruce’s squad.
So, we thought this was an ideal time to take a closer look at the new Hull City home kit . The lightweight shirt is in the club’s instantly recognisable amber and black stripes, with a shaped, dropped hem for improved fit. Eight laser cut ventilation holes on the back of the shirt help to keep players and fans cool.
The shirt also features a ribbed crew neck collar for comfort, while the club crest and Umbro double diamond are embroidered onto the chest. Just below them is the logo of the new club’s new sponsor 12Bet.
Alongside the shirt, the team will wear black shorts with amber detailing. Ventilated stretch insert seams keep the shorts breathable, while a shaped inseam creates a fitted shape.
Maintaining a strong identity throughout the kit, the shorts also feature the Hull City crest and the Umbro logo embroidered onto the fabric.
Completing the kit are smart amber socks with a black trim. Constructed to be comfortable and to enhance performance, the socks also feature a double welt cuff in order to ensure a smart fit.
