UMBRO and West Ham United have unveiled their Commemorative 125th Anniversary Away kit, which the Hammers will wear in the 2020/21 season.
Alongside the Home kit, the Away kit is inspired by the Club’s golden period of the 1960s, during which the east Londoners won the FA Cup and European Cup Winners’ Cup and provided three members of England’s 1966 FIFA World Cup-winning team glory, the 125th Anniversary Away kit is a modern twist on the strip worn by all-time greats Bobby Moore, Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters.
The iconic Vista Blue shirt with two Claret bands became a timeless classic, and its popularity has seen it recreated on a number of occasions since, most notably in the inaugural Premier League season in 1993/94, and the 2011/12 campaign, which climaxed in Play-Off final glory at Wembley.
With those successes in mind, and following consultation with supporters, the result is a 2020/21 Away kit that looks and feels authentic in any era.
The 2020/21 Away shirt features a traditional Vista Blue body and two wide Claret bands, complete with Claret collar and cuffs, a stylized rib neckline and the 125th anniversary two-colour crest.
The Away shorts are in Vista Blue, and feature the two-colour crest, while the Away socks are Vista Blue, with a Claret cuff fold over and ‘WHU’ embroidered on the back.
