Inspired by the Hammers’ 1980 FA Cup-winning team, the strips are a modern twist on the iconic colours worn by Billy Bonds, Trevor Brooking and co on the road to Wembley, climaxing in an unforgettable win over Arsenal, 40 years ago. With a retro feel, but designed to appeal to all generations, the home shirt features a claret V-neck and sky blue chest, including a tonal stripe design, sky blue sleeves and claret cuffs and the Umbro diamond motif design on each shoulder.
The West Ham United crest is in full colour with an embroidered frame, while the FA Cup winners are honoured further with a 1980 crest graphic on the back of the neck. The home kit is completed by claret shorts featuring a full-colour crest and claret shorts.
