Top-tier English soccer side Huddersfield Town have announced a four-year partnership with Umbro.

The British sportswear manufacturer will serve as the Premier League outfit’s kit supplier from the 2018/19 season until 2021/22.

The deal will also see Umbro provide Huddersfield with replica and training wear.

The company replaces German sportswear brand Puma, which has supplied Huddersfield’s kit since 2013.

Umbro previously provided the Yorkshire club’s kit for the 2011/12 and 2012/13 seasons. The firm also supplies apparel to Premier League sides AFC Bournemouth, Everton, and West Ham United.

Sean Jarvis, commercial director of Huddersfield, said: “The partnership has already developed and grown through a design process which has seen us finalise what we feel will be very popular home and alternative kits, accompanied by a high-quality range of training and leisurewear. We know that the quality and look of the kits are important to our fans and that has been at the forefront of our decision making.”

Huddersfield are currently 16th in the Premier League after winning eight of their 33 games so far this season. The Terriers drew 1-1 away against Brighton and Hove Albion on 7th April, and host Watford on Saturday.
