Heart of Midlothian unveiled the Foundation Tribute Jersey; the brand new official 15/16 Puma third kit, which proudly bears the names of thousands of Foundation of Hearts pledgers.

The jersey, launched in association with the Foundation of Hearts, features the names of every pledger who reached the required FoH fan reward threshold in February.

Chairwoman Ann Budge said “Everyone here at the club, who has been involved in producing this amazing shirt, is thrilled with the final product. This has been another real team effort between the club and FOH and we were delighted to work together to produce something which truly recognises the contribution made by the pledgers. This is a real win, win, win!”

Foundation of Hearts chairman Brian Cormack said: “This is an immensely proud and emotional moment for everyone associated with the Foundation of Hearts, and we are absolutely delighted to see this project come to fruition.

“This shirt does not just feature a list of fans’ names; it pays fitting tribute to the 8,000 and more supporters who have together saved this great club.”

The complicated production process of this unique jersey meant the manual checking of over 8,000 names on fabric and on computer screens many times and it is perhaps inevitable there may be a slight hiccup somewhere on the shirt. However, we believe the upside of such a tribute will outweigh any such hiccups as the shirt looks fantastic. Those whose names fall behind the club crest or puma logo will find that their names are repeated on another part of the jersey.

All the featured names were supplied to the manufacturer by the Foundation of Hearts. Any queries or concerns regarding any names should be directed to the Foundation of Hearts.

Both FC Sevilla and VfB Stuttgart did exactly the same a few years ago.

Tranmere Rovers have done something similar on a couple of occasions. First one was a XARA shirt featuring the names of all the season ticket holders, and the second one was a Vandanel shirt featuring the names of people who paid a tenner for the privilege. Like I did!

Is it good luck or bad to be the person whose name is coming out the arse end of the puma?<br /><br />Neat shirt though.
