2020 vision – Umbro named as official kit supplier
Dundalk Football Club are delighted to announce that Umbro are the club’s new official kit supplier.
The reigning SSE Airtricity League champions have signed a multi-year deal with the iconic football brand, who will supply the club with teamwear and training wear for the senior men’s, academy and girls’ teams from the 2020 season.
Vinny Perth’s squad will head into next year’s campaign as the dominant force in Irish football, seeking a sixth league title in seven years – a period of success that began in the distinctive double-diamond shirts of Umbro, who were Dundalk’s kit supplier from 2007 to 2015.
The 2020 home jersey, which is revealed today, incorporates a clean white, black and red design and a stylised v-cut neckline. The white shirt, engineered using a polyester 1×1 micro rib fabric, features a chest band in black and red and matching details on each sleeve.
Dundalk FC first team players will be modelling the jersey at Oriel Park on Saturday 30 November, part of the big Christmas opening of the Dundalk FC shop, which will have the new Umbro range in stock for all ages ahead of the festive season. Supporters will also be able to purchase all stock online at dundalkfc.com or umbro.ie.
Mike Treacy, chairman of Dundalk FC, said: “We are excited about this new partnership that sees Umbro back as Dundalk Football Club’s official kit supplier. Umbro has a strong football heritage and we are confident that their cutting-edge kit and training wear will help us continue to set the standard for League of Ireland football next season and beyond.”
The Lilywhites will be hoping to kick-off 2020 where they left off in 2019 – a season that saw them win the SSE Airtricity League, EA Sports Cup, President’s Cup and the inaugural Unite the Union Champions Cup earlier this month to round of an incredible season, which also included a club-record 31-game unbeaten domestic run.
The Lilywhites also reached the FAI Cup final and were just a penalty shootout away from an unprecedented clean sweep of all five domestic trophies.
Jonathan Courtenay, managing director of JACC Sports, Irish licensee for Umbro, said: “We are delighted to partner with Dundalk FC again after a few seasons apart. Umbro Ireland is growing rapidly at present, particularly in the League of Ireland, and we view this agreement with the champions of Ireland as a key sponsorship in our brand portfolio.
“We look forward to providing great kits and first class training, travel and bench wear to Dundalk FC’s players and fans, as well as providing a first-class retail and online shopping experience.”
