New away kit in demand

Not got the new away kit yet?

Whether young or old, male or female. Get along to the Lakeside and Stadium stores this weekend to check out the 2008/09 sky blue change strip for yourself. The new kit has evoked memories of classic players and teams from over the years and demand has been high since it was launched just last week. Although there is a firm recognition of the West Ham United heroes of the past, the new shirt, shorts and socks have all been created using the latest in sports technology to form a kit that is visually imposing and performance enhancing.

The striking design features the logo of club sponsors XL Holidays, the woven/embroidered club crest and the club's other main colours of claret and white in an innovative style. The new away shirt is made of a mesh body fabric that is lightweight and breathable with a vented underarm panel to allow optimum heat transfer and a back panel featuring a zonal bodymap design. Whether worn by you or the players, the entire kit will provide a fitting look for West Ham United as the club strives for success in 2008/09.

Supporters are also asked to please note that the Stadium store will close at 4pm rather than the usual 5pm time this coming Saturday because of stocktaking. It will open as usual at 9.30am. The Lakeside store will be operating normal hours over the weekend, namely 9am-9pm on Saturday and 11am-5pm on Sunday. Click here for more information about the club stores and how to get there.
