For 2023/24, Umbro decided to focus on the width as the distinctive element for this season’s vertically striped Bournemouth home shirt. The colours were as expected, but the kit maker gave more width to the black ones, and added offset pinstripe borders to the red counterparts. The sleeve cuffs and henley collar both exhibited solid black fill. Signing off the shirt was the lettering ‘AFCB’ in white. The said Bournemouth kit was part of the club’s 100th anniversary in the Football League.
