New Blackburn 07/08 Umbro Shirts?

The rumours just won’t go away, will Blackburn be wearing Umbro shirts next season instead of Lonsdale, no official announcement as yet. Supposedly it will be an Umbro shirt, as Lonsdale manufacturer badges wont be on any football shirts in 2007/08. It has been suggested that an Umbro price list has gone out to sportswear stores in the North West and Blackburn Rovers were on that list.

What is confirmed are the designs for Blackburn’s shirts next season, after successfully trialling allowing fans to vote on the next season’s kit at the end of the 2006/07, the club allowed fans to choose again this year. They had a selection of three to choose from, all the home shirts were the traditional blue & white halves, whilst the away kit could have been orange, black & blue or red & black halves.

The result of the text vote of fans, saw option 1 as the winer for the home shirt and option 3 for the away shirt, many Blackburn fans have been craving a black & red halved away shirt for years now and the finally have their wish. The shirts are expected to differ slightly from those pictured above as these are just computer representations. The collar could change as could the position of the manufacturer’s logo and potentially the makers name?

  3. Benni McCarthy

    The new strips look great, pleased to see that the londale brand has been dropped, umbro is a more respectable kit supplier for the club. Me and Maceo Rigters will enjoy a great season in them next term, scoring loads of goals for the fans. And to the reports of me leaving….Rubbish. I love Ewood Park and Mark Hughes!

  18. Anthony

    rovers maybe wearing these kits next year but they certainly wont be lonsdale it will be umbro definatley.

  19. Hatstand66

    It would be no surprise to see Umbro shirts as Mike Ashley who owns the Lonsdale brand also has a £9 million stake in Umbro and a deal to sell them in his shops Sports World



  21. Sargie

    The sooner the cheap tacky Lonsdale tat is disposed of the better. It’s about time Rovers got a proper kit manufacturer like Umbro. Get rid of all the silly designs, keep it simple and traditional. A new sponsor wouldn’t go amiss either.

  22. Brandon

    mingin we will be in the championship so better sell mccarhty now to man u

  23. Seb

    very very nice colours. shame its Lonsdale as i feel we could do with a bigger brand to emphaise the club.

  24. Dan

  25. RoversFanUsa
