Inspired by the Club’s golden period in the 1960s, Umbro launch the West Ham 20/21 commemorative 125th anniversary away shirt, which features a modern twist on the strip worn by all-time greats Bobby Moore, Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters.

Alongside the recently released home shirt, the West Ham 20/21 away shirt from Umbro is inspired by the Club’s golden period of the 1960s, during which time the east Londoners won the FA Cup and European Cup Winners’ Cup and provided three members of England’s 1966 FIFA World Cup-winning team glory. It features a design that pays homage to the kit worn by club greats from that era, tweaking it for modern day performance.

The iconic Vista Blue shirt with two Claret bands became a timeless classic, and its popularity has seen it recreated on a number of occasions since, most notably in club’s inaugural Premier League season in 1993/94, and the 2011/12 campaign, which climaxed in Play-Off final glory at Wembley. With those successes in mind, and following consultation with supporters, the result is a 2020/21 Away shirt that looks and feels authentic in any era. It features a traditional Vista Blue body and the two wide Claret bands, complete with Claret collar and cuffs, a stylised rib neckline and the 125th anniversary two-colour crest.

Club captain and lifelong Hammer Mark Noble said: “I loved the new Home kit and I love the new Away kit as well! As a fan, there is a lot of nostalgia with this kit, making me think of those old photos I saw from the sixties, when some of the Club’s greatest players wore a kit that looked just like this.

I can also remember wearing a similar shirt during our promotion-winning season, when we won a record 14 away games, so hopefully this new shirt will inspire us to do well on the road next season!

As I’ve always said, West Ham is a Club that has a proud history and, as we celebrate our 125th birthday, this Away shirt definitely marks that history in a nice way.
