Umbro gives in to West Ham fan pressure

Umbro_imageWest Ham’s technical kit partner Umbro has given in to fan pressure to publish a high definition version of their advert which featured in the last Hammers programme at the Boleyn Ground which contains the names of over 26,000 season ticket holders.

West Ham fan, Mark Walker started an online petition to pressure Umbro to publish a large version of the image and in return the kit maker challenged him to “Get 1,000 signatures and we will talk”

WallTen days ago Mark reached that magic number and the petition number now stands at 1,076. Umbro have been quiet on the matter so far but today publicly tweeted Mark from their official twitter account to say We’re working on finding the best way to upload the file, will be available soon”

Claret and Hugh has offered to host the image on this site for season ticket holders to download and find their own name in the clever advert.

West Ham has done something very similar at the Olympic Stadium by including the names of all 52,000 founding season ticket holders in very small writing on a claret wall with a pair of Sky blue Hammers and the words Built together Founders 2016.
