Swansea City have signed a new 3-year deal with kit manufacturers Umbro.

Moving on from Macro, Umbro will now provide Swansea City’s playing and training kits for the next 3 seasons.

The Swans join the likes of the England national team, Blackburn, Wigan, West Ham, Birmingham Hull, Nottm Forest, WBA, Southampton, Everton, Rangers and Sunderland who all get their kits provided by Umbro.

Vice Chairman Leigh Dineen was delighted with the news and told the Official Site:

‘We are delighted to team up with UMBRO.

As a club we have worked extremely hard to attract a brand partner that matches the huge ambition of this football club.

‘Having clinched promotion to the Championship, UMBRO will help the club progress to a new level – on and off the field.

‘As our support has continued to grow substantially over the last few seasons, the demand to satisfy our fans’ merchandising needs has also increased dramatically.

‘This deal will help take us to a new level and I’m sure the fans will be delighted with the quality and range of merchandise for the coming season.”



The club’s Business and Merchandise Manager, Andrea Morris added:

‘The deal is an exclusive agreement which means that only the club shop, Debenhams and our website will stock the club’s official UMBRO merchandise.

‘Since our move to the Liberty Stadium we’ve had three fantastic seasons. Our growth in merchandise sales has helped the club operate on a sound financial footing which, in turn, has gone a long way to establishing a promotion-winning team on the pitch.

‘I’m sure the fans will not only give our new kits the big thumbs up, but also our exciting new range of leisurewear.

‘We all look forward to a long and successful partnership with Umbro.’



The new kit design for the next season will be kept a secret up until it’s unveiled sometime in June.
