Since 1904 West Ham United have had their home ground at Boleyn Ground, better known as Upton Park. However when the final whistle goes, in the final game of next season, it will be the last time they perform at the iconic stadium. Umbro now pay homage to their old home-ground with West Ham’s new home-shirt, which is inspired greatly by the shirt the first time they played at the stadium.
West Ham United is a very proud club. Everyone connected with the club, be it players, or fans, love the club with all their heart. That is why Umbro felt it only right to pay tribute to the clubs roots and the place they have played their football for more than 100 years.
You can pre-order the new West Ham United home-shirt right here – just 75 euro.
Apart from the fact that the new home-shirt is almost a true copy of the shirt from 1904, Umbro have added a discrete tribute to the old home ground with the print “Boleyn Ground 1904-2016”. It has been placed under both the clubs logo and in the neck. Now it’s just up to Air Force Andy and the other lads to do the stadium and fans proud.
Umbro have done what they can to pay homage to West Ham United and their 111 year old stadium, Boleyn Ground. I feel the shirt is a great way to honour their history. If you agree, then you can already pre-order the shirt now.
