English Premier League side West Ham United Football Club unveiled their 2019/20 Umbro home and away kits on Thursday.
The new Hammers jerseys celebrate the fortieth anniversary of the club’s 1980 FA Cup title by taking their design inspirations from West Ham’s 1979/80 jerseys.
According to West Ham United:
Inspired by the Hammers’ historic 1980 FA Cup-winning team, the West Ham 2019/20 Umbro kits are a modern twist on the iconic colours worn by Billy Bonds, Trevor Brooking and co on the road to Wembley, climaxing in an unforgettable win over Arsenal, 40 years ago.
With a retro feel, but designed to appeal to all generations, the home shirt features a claret V-neck and sky blue chest, including a tonal stripe design, sky blue sleeves and claret cuffs and the Umbro diamond motif design on each shoulder.
The West Ham United crest is in full colour with an embroidered frame, while the FA Cup winners are honoured further with a 1980 crest graphic on the back of the neck.
The home kit is completed by claret shorts featuring a full colour crest and claret shorts.
The all-white West Ham 19/20 Umbro away kit will bring memories of that sunny afternoon at Wembley flooding back.
The shirt is white with a claret and blue striped V-neck and cuffs, with the 1980 crest graphic on the back of the neck, with the look being completed by classic white shorts and socks.
