Umbro Launch Blackburn Rovers 18/19 Home Kit

Tweaking colours for 18/19, Umbro have launched the new Blackburn Rovers home kit by referring to traditional 'Cambridge' blue colours. Heading for a return to the Championship this season, it's with a look back their looking forward.

A kit that looks to mix style as well as substance, it sees the original ‘Cambridge’ blue colours, which were worn when Rovers became founder members of the Football League in the 1880s, return to the pitch. 

The lighter blue design last appeared on Rovers’ home shirts during the 2014-15 Championship season and famously featured in the 1991-92 campaign, when Kenny Dalglish’s side triumphed at Wembley to secure promotion to the newly-formed Premier League.

This season’s kit, which features new principal sponsor 10Bet on the front, marks a return to the club’s roots, but with a fresh, modern perspective. The classy and clean design, which is sure to prove popular with supporters of all ages, is also embedded in Umbro’s brand values of heritage, tradition and tailoring which is evident in the sleeves of the shirt as well as shorts.

A strong finish, it will go on sale today ahead of Blackburn's pre-season friendly against Liverpool, tomorrow.
