New home kit revealed

The new West Ham United home kit has been revealed today and is available to pre-order instore and online.

Officially launched on Wednesday 30 July, the brand new Umbro strip is available exclusively via the club from the Lakeside Shopping Centre and Boleyn Ground stores. To help fans young and old and of all sizes get their hands on the kit that will be worn by Alan Curbishley's men throughout the 2008/09 season, the Stadium store will open early at 8.30am on the launch day and also on Thursday 31 July.

Alternatively it can also be pre-ordered online via the Megastore, available alongside a whole host of new Umbro ranges. The striking claret and blue kit which has been made using Umbro's new Trilogy fabric, a thermodynamic performance-enhancing material designed to control vapour, moisture and heat. The new kit has a unique contrast v neckline featuring a white mock collar, solid sky sleeves and tonal striped jacquard throughout the main body.

The perfect complement to the already-released sky blue away kit released last month, the new home strip is expected to be equally popular for fans wanting to follow their favourites in style next season. The club shops and Megastore also have all the latest lines from the new Umbro training wear available - the very same athlete-inspired range that is being worn by Alan Curbishley's men during the pre-season tour of North America this summer.
