Double diamond returns with nod to former Town shirts
The Club can today reveal the Umbro home and away kits to be worn by Town for the 2022/23 season.
Both kits are available for pre-order here.
Fans got a first peek at the new shirts in a video shared on the Club’s official social media channels, with British heavyweight boxer and passionate Blues fan Fabio Wardley donning both strips.
The 27-year-old explained how the new kits give a nod to the Club’s iconic history, while also looking ahead to an exciting future at Portman Road.
The blue home jersey features a distorted linear graphic, inspired by the architectural lines and structure of the Cobbold Stand at Portman Road. Knitted white pique shorts and blue socks with white part hoop complete the kit that the Blues will don for the new campaign.
The away jersey pays homage to two iconic Town strips – the 1992/93 third kit and the 1993/94 away kit. Both were supplied by Umbro and worn by Town in the Premier League. The red and black shirt features a graphic front, back body stripe and raglan sleeves.
Town Women, who currently compete in the FAWNL Southern Premier Division, will also be wearing Umbro’s new design as they vie for promotion in 2022/23.
Using extensive experience, advanced technology, and a pioneering approach, Umbro has created a kit that gives Town players the chance to perform at their best on the pitch, while also ensuring fans can enjoy wearing a replica as they support the Blues from the stands.
“It has been great working in partnership with Umbro to deliver two fully bespoke and unique kits,” Paul Macro, Head of Retail Operations at Town, told the Club website.
“Every design or detail that features in the home or away kit has a story behind it. We’re so pleased to finally show them to supporters.
“As well as the home and away product that is currently on pre-order, we’ll also be offering home mini kits from three-six months upwards, away mini kits from two-three years upwards and we will be trialling ladies fit shirts in both the home and away designs. These should all be available on the general sale dates.”
Jonathan McCourt, Head of Sports Marketing at UK Football Umbro, added: “We’re proud to share Ipswich Town’s home and away kits for the new season.
“This season’s home kit has a modern feel while still capturing the essence of Ipswich Town Football Club. The away jersey has the hallmarks of the club’s famous kits from both 1992/93 and 1993/94.
“It’s been great to rejoin forces with a club that we share so much history with. We cannot wait to see players and fans alike donning the famous double-diamond once again.”
The new home and away kits are now available for pre-order here.
