Kit Manufacturer

Recommended Posts

Am I right in believing that we are in the final year of the deal with Umbro? any whispers of another deal or a new manufacturer? I would like a new brand to be honest to freshen it up a bit, I have always thought an Adidas Rovers shirt would look mint!

Yeah Adidas would be smart. Looking forward to a more traditional Rovers shirt next season. Not against Sky blue in principle as a one off but I do miss the proper blue. 

Fed up with us wearing the away shirt when it isn't necessary.

Not bought a shirt for several years because Venkys have, with few exceptions, seen us have the worst ones in memory.

Not hopeful.

In the name of God a darker shade of Blue....PLEASE!

I'll have my work cut out if that happens. 🙄 Keep the Cambridge Citeh blue! 😁

There’s been some shockers but I loved the ‘relegation kit’ a great blue with red detail and available sponsorless

Whilst I don’t buy kits really now I always wanted an Adidas Rovers kit

The Adidas stripes wouldn’t work with our kit really would they?

Unless they avoid the halves issue altogether with a block shoulders.

Suppose they’d have to be red? Might look good!

Some genius do a mock up!

Looks smart and could work. As @S8 & Blue says Red stripes could look decent.

Red in the badge , no need for any red on the kit imo. Save the red for the away kit

I always looked for their results as a kid because the subbetteo packet with blue and white players always said Blackburn Rovers/Grasshoppers Zurich on the front.

Sorry to burst everybody's bubble but the Umbro kit deal was signed for the 16/17 season to last for 5 seasons. 2 more seasons of Umbro it is then.....

That's a blow, the current kit is the worst ever. Nothing would induce me to wear one.

I'm not against the shade of blue per se, as we have a tradition to have worn it in the past as an occasional colour. However, what absolutely ruins it is the vomit - inducing 10Bet sponsor that can only be described as a giant black toilet seat stuck on to the famous blue and white halves. We're stuck with 10Bet for another 2 seasons also.

Like Tyrone I don’t like the current kit. I don’t like the washed out citeh blue.

But the logo looks awful. If sponsors are insisting on a black logo (which ruins the look of the shirt) it won’t inspire fans.

However, the Bet UK that sponsor Swansea would have made such a difference.

A shirt that the sponsor works with the shirt.

Still can't get used to all our players having  number 10... 🙈😂 

But a suçcessful campaign for 10Bet i guess in that we talk about it and other fans take the piss (meaning they talk it too...)
