Huddersfield Town and Umbro revealed their new home kit for the 2021/22 Sky Bet Championship season.
The players, and supporters, will be “wearing history” for the upcoming campaign as the kit pays tribute to Herbert Chapman’s FA Cup winning side of 1922. On 22 April 1922, Town beat Preston North End at Stamford Bridge to win the trophy for the first, and only time, in the Club’s history.
To honour that historic triumph 100 years ago, Town’s 2021/22 kit has been designed by Umbro to put a modern twist on the kit worn by that team.
The resemblance between the two kits is firstly noticeable through the wide stripes and the stylised collar.
One of the biggest introductions to the 2021/22 kit is the inclusion of the tonal Yorkshire rose, placed directly between the Huddersfield Town crest and the tonal Umbro logo. This pays tribute to the Yorkshire rose worn on the shirt in the final.
The FA Cup winners’ names feature on the inner neck of the shirt, so supporters and players are wearing history.
The three stars are also on the back of the shirt that honour Town’s Thrice Champions.
The shirt dons the logo of Town’s Principal Shirt Sponsor, Utilita Energy, on the front, and the SportsBroker logo on the back.
The shorts are white, like the 1922 FA Cup Final ones, and include a tonal Huddersfield Town crest and Umbro logo. They are both tonal as the shorts worn in the final were completely plain.
Finally, the home socks are black for the 2021/22 campaign, with a white cuff at the top that has a blue hoop going through it. Again, this is to mirror the kit worn 100 years ago.
