West Ham United have chosen to unveil their new commemorative 125th anniversary home kit for the 2020/21 season on Monday morning.
Inspired by the club’s greatest period, which saw the foundation of the world-famous Academy of Football, FA Cup and European Cup Winners’ Cup triumphs and three Hammers lead England to FIFA World Cup glory, the 125th Anniversary Home kit is a modern classic with a nod to our glorious past.
The kit, which features the Club’s iconic Claret and Blue shirt, complemented by traditional white shorts and socks, was designed and finalised following consultation with supporters, resulting in a striking strip that looks as good at home as it does on the pitch.
Introducing our Commemorative 125th Anniversary Home Kit… #125Together

West Ham United’s 2020/21 Umbro Home kit is available to pre-order from the Official Online Store today – the Club’s 125th birthday – with free UK delivery.
The kit will be available to buy in person from the four Official Club Stores – London Stadium, Lakeside Thurrock, Liberty Romford and Eastgate Basildon – from Wednesday 15 July.
Club captain and lifelong Hammer Mark Noble is a big fan of the new kit, saying: “As a boy, my Dad would tell me all about Bobby Moore, Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters, about the Academy of Football and how we were one of the most entertaining teams in the world.
“This kit instantly reminds me of those the legends wore when they won the FA Cup and the European Cup Winners’ Cup.
“While we all want to experience more success in the future, West Ham United is a club that will always remember its past and pay respects to its heritage, and this kit does that perfectly.”
The Home shirt features a traditional Claret body and Vista Blue sleeves, complete with Vista Blue collar and Claret tipping to the cuffs, a stylized rib neckline and the 125th anniversary two-colour crest.
The Home shorts are white, with Vista Blue and New Claret contrast tipping on the side panels, and the two-colour crest, while the Home socks are also white, with contrasting double hoops in Claret and Vista Blue and ‘WHU’ embroidered on the back.
Season Ticket Holders can also enjoy a 10% discount off the new kit, by simply logging in to the online store using their West Ham account.

Can’t lie that looks dank

Still missing the Boleyn Castle from the crest. Another of the Club’s more disappointing decisions.
