Everton unveiled their new Umbro 2014/15 home jersey on Wednesday. The royal blue jersey home jersey along with a yellow goalkeeper jersey are the first to be released since the Liverpool based club signed a 5-year deal with Umbro in February.
The jersey pays tribute to the club and the brand. The royal jersey, white shorts, and navy socks is inspired by the look from 1924 when the team wore them on the way to winning the Barcelona Cup in Spain. 1924 is the year Umbro was founded.
“Umbro has created a unique technical kit which I’m sure both players and fans will be proud to wear,” Everton manager Roberto Martinez said. “It has been inspired by our Club’s glorious past, however its quality and design are very much for the modern-day era and I remain confident it will help us to perform to our full potential on the pitch in the Premier League and in Europe.”
The royal blue jersey has a navy stub collar. The navy is continued on the top with navy stitch detailing along the shoulders and down the sides of the jersey. Subtle thin navy hoops are in the weave of the body of the jersey which gives it a very finished look.
The Everton team badge is over the left chest while the Umbro logo is located over the right chest. ‘Umbro’ is also on the sleeves of the jersey. The team sponsor Chang logo is on the center chest.
Tim Howard will wear a 2-tone yellow goalkeeper jersey between the pipes. The diagonal split features a slightly darker yellow over the team badge while a lighter yellow on the lower portion of the jersey. It has a crew color but keeps the navy detailing along the shoulders and down the side of the jersey and inseam of the long sleeves of the jersey.
The release was paired with a campaign celebrating the ‘Fabric of Everton’. The club is highlighting all the people who have touched the club and how they are part of what makes the club so special. Fans can share how long they have been a part of the club ‘Fabric since’ by using #efcFABRIC.
