Hibernian FC, along with newly appointed technical partner Joma, are excited to present the new official home kit for the 2021/22 season.
The traditional green body and white sleeves remain with the creative sublimation of the street map of Edinburgh showcasing the clubs strong links across the City. The club crest proudly sits in it’s rightful place of Leith within the City map.
Joma has created a shirt preserving the identity of Hibernian using green as the main feature. It is designed with a regular fitting providing comfort adjustment to the body to prevent pulling and provides freedom of movement.
The green color grades into darker green at the bottom in a way to extend the Hibernian feeling further out of the city, into the wider communities of Edinburgh.
Hibernian FC Creative Manager Peter Burt said, “Our partnership with Joma has allowed us a greater level of creativity which hasn’t been possible with previous kit partners. They understand our brand aspirations and working closely with their design team we were able to create something completely unique to our supporters, and the City.”
Interim Chief Executive, Greg McEwan added, “As a club we have set some ambitious targets, but realistic at the same time, and with this new kit you can tell we are passionate about our position within the City of Edinburgh and how we plan to grow our brand within the City, the wider country and beyond. This kit is really focused on our fans. It is their City and from this design it is very much green and white.”
Joma products are recognised for their quality and technological features. The brand’s quality standards have been applied to the garments for Hibernian.
The shirts are manufactured using polyester, characterised by its quality and elasticity, in addition to being highly resistant and easy care. This fabric has excellent breathability, due to the application of a next-gen finish, giving the garment’s outer layer enhanced perspiration wicking capacity for speedy evaporation, thus keeping the body dry.
In those areas where the player requires greater perspiration support, polyester is replaced by a MESH fabric, a mesh section allowing air to enter the garment and come into contact with the skin, drying it and retaining a constant body temperature. Antibacterial treatment has also been included.
