West Ham home kit leaked

It that time of year when images of West Ham’s kits are invariably leaked on the Internet. With the club’s 125th-anniversary celebration planned for 2020 rumours suggest that the home kit will pay homage to West Ham retro kits of the seventies and early eighties.

The latest Internet rumours suggest the home kit will be based on the famous Admiral kit used in various variations between 1976 and 1980. A mock-up shared on social media suggests it will not have a collar and the chevrons will be slightly straighter.

At the beginning of May, West Ham and Umbro confirmed a new long-term agreement extending a five-year agreement worth £20m by a further four years although the new value of the extended contract was not revealed.

West Ham usually reveals their new kits towards the end of May and last year revealed both the Home and Away kits on 25th May, the previous year we had to wait until 21st June to see the new home kit.

The third kit is usually released later, last year it was on 24th July but in previous years it has been as late as 1st September.

  1. If this is really the home kit then I cant wait to get mine.This could be the best hone shirt for a decade or more

  2. So this is not the kit, just a mock up. Fake news !

  3. If its anything like this I love it⚒️⚒️⚒️

  4. Let’s hope this isn’t the kit. it was nice in the day but it looks a bit naff now. Claret with blue sleeves is far classier.

  5. Some things just need to stay in the past. The desire for retrospective kits is becoming quite tiresome, pastiche unoriginal and uninspiring.

  6. Hopefully they have the away kit in the same form, that was my favourite away kit of all time closely followed by the 85/86 one.

  7. this trend of recreating retro kits is getting boring, but I must admit this is pretty decent and probably a fitting tribute for 125 year anniversary. I’d buy it.

  8. Horribly dated. I can’t imagine a top six club wearing something like this.

  9. Decent kit, and to follow on would love to see a return to the Argentina style BAC Windows kit of the 90s return for the away kit, or else the traditional away kit of 2 claret hoops across a light blue background 🙂
