West Ham United captain Mark Noble was thrilled to unveil the new 2016/17 Umbro Home Kit at the new Stadium and hopes it will attract attention from people across the world.
The iconic strip was officially unveiled at an exclusive event for 500 lucky fans at the Club’s new ‘Home of Heroes’ on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and featured first-team stars, a football freestyler, rapper and DJ, celebrity hosts and stunning interactive video and musical presentations.
Summer signings Sofiane Feghouli, Havard Nordtveit, Gokhan Tore, Ashley Fletcher, Antonio Martinez and Domingos Quina were joined by Noble, Aaron Cresswell, Winston Reid, Michail Antonio and Raphael Spiegel alongside YouTube sensation Spencer Owen officially unveiling the 2016/17 Home Kit to fans across the world.
Noble cannot wait to wear it for the first time and hopes to achieve even more success when the Hammers play their first Premier League game at the new Stadium against Bournemouth on August 21.
Noble said: “The new home kit is lovely. We have obviously seen it behind-the-scenes and we have been happy with it for a long time. It looks great.
“It is a fitting kit to see us move into the new Stadium.
“I enjoyed the show and it was a bit different to what we are normally used to when we unveil the new kit.
“But we are moving into a fantastic new Stadium and it warrants it to get the kit out, not just to West Ham fans, but people across the world as the Club is moving forward in massive strides and we need to get the kit out there.”
