CONFIRMED | England announce they’re dumping Canterbury for new kit provider

England Rugby and Umbro have announced a new four-year partnership.

The English sports brand will be the Official Technical Kit Partner from 1 September 2020, when the iconic double-diamond of Umbro will be worn by the England Men’s teams, Red Roses, Sevens and age grade teams.

Umbro will provide the team’s match kit, training wear and off-field kit as well as offering fans a full range of supporter wear including men’s, women’s and children’s ranges from 1 September 2020. Umbro join England Rugby next season with nearly a 100 years of experience in the development of performance products that have been tried and tested at elite level, across sports.

Renowned for its pedigree supporting professional teams, Umbro has a heritage in rugby union; having previously supported each of the home nations, multiple clubs and the only British & Irish Lions team to win a series in New Zealand, in 1971.

The brand’s extensive experience across sports and its pioneering approach to developing kit and rigorous testing has ensured Umbro is ready for rugby.

Umbro managing director Anthony Little said: “The partnership between Umbro and England Rugby from September is a seminal chapter in our history.  The first time the England rugby team runs out onto the pitch, wearing the double-diamond logo, will be a proud moment for us, as an English brand.”
