Hammers announce £20m Umbro deal

umbroannouncement726West Ham and Umbro have finally officially announced their  five-year commercial agreement to become the Club’s official technical partner from next season taking over from Adidas.

The worst kept secret in football was widely reported back in October last year so the announcement comes as no surprise to many fans.

Umbro was sold by Nike in 2012 to the Iconix Brand Group for £140m and in February last year Umbro announced Everton as their first new Premier League club to start from the beginning of the 2014/15 football season.The Everton deal is claimed to be worth £6m per year  or £30m over five years.

West Ham are thought to have stuck a £4m per year deal worth £20m over years which is double that of our current Adidas deal which earned the Hammers £2m per year and £4m over the length of the two year contract.

When added to the £20m deal already agreed with Online betting company Betway who signed a three and a half year sponsorship deal earlier this year it brings an extra £40m of funding in the coming to invest.

  1. Well good news! We’ll remember Sam lying on the bench wearing his Adidas pajamas…lol

  2. I like adidas more but aint too bothered really.I think these will only be sold to true fans though Matte 😀

  3. Same as Matte my favourite shirt is the away white with thin claret line with Dr Martin on it
    Still wearing it all the time,
    Hope the quality is better now owned by Nike it used to be rubbish they could only get the Neville brothers to wear the boots,
    Fila was quality but a good deal at double the price,
    That covers Mrs B and BFS,S wages ( that’s both kit and sponsors)and Carroll,s

    • Yes, in my opinion that shirt is the best… Di canio wore it and BFS was far from us… 😉

  4. I used to have the fila one but not anymore.I lent it to a friend who was going on holiday to thailand.He ran out off cash & sold the bloody thing to a bar owner,b*stard!!haha:D

  5. hahah… I’ve got that and another one I bought on ebay with Ravel’s autograph … Adidas N° 15 framed. lol

  6. Tyson it would make a good away kit when we go to the new stadium,
    Used to a season ticket holder then they were good days,
    Took all my grandsons that year to watch ( I have 6 ) only one is a hammer fan and we beat every team they supported,
    Now that was football

  7. Collectors piece Matte when we are trying to buy him back like Progba after he lights Italy up next year,

  8. I know, I like that shirt… I really hope Ravel will have a brilliant career like Pogba, Man utd had two great talents… I’m happy Ravel played for us, he showed his wonderful talent during the few occasions he had… but BFS was right again, Nolan is better than him… lol

  9. as Allardyce is dyslexic when told of the umbro deal he thought they said sombrero & thought I can hide my fat head while sliding into my chair chewing gum without anyone noticing
