The double-diamond returns
The Club can confirm that it has entered an initial four-year partnership which will see Umbro become Town’s main kit supplier.
Umbro had provided kits for the Blues previously, most recently from 1989 to 1995, a period where the Club secured promotion to the inaugural Premier League.
Town will don the distinctive double-diamond again beginning in the 2022/23 campaign, while Umbro will also supply the Blues with replica and training wear.
Umbro will also be the main kit supplier for Town Women.
Fabio Wardley, a British heavyweight boxer and passionate fan of the Blues, helped launch the partnership in a video shared on the Club’s and Umbro’s social channels. The boxer explained how the partnership reflects on the illustrious history of Town, while looking ahead towards an exciting future.
Paul Macro, Head of Retail Operations at the Club, said: “We are delighted to partner with Umbro for the upcoming season and beyond.
“Umbro has excellent credentials having created high-quality kits for clubs all around the world. We are looking forward to showing our fans the eye-catching, bespoke design Umbro has produced for the club.
“We have high ambitions as a club, and we know that Umbro will be the perfect partner to support us in pursuit of our goals.”
Jonathan McCourt, Head of Sports Marketing – UK Football, Umbro, commented: “We’re so excited that Ipswich Town will be wearing the famous double-diamond once again.
“There is so much shared history between Umbro and Ipswich. We are hoping that many more happy memories will be created as we join forces once again.
“We’re looking forward to sharing the club’s home and away kits with fans in due course, and we can’t wait to see them donning the jerseys in a packed-out Portman Road next season.”
