World Cup Kits: New Umbro England Away Kit Revealed In Full, With Help From Kasabian (With Photos & Video)

By Ollie Irish

Umbro launched its new England Away Kit (which you can WIN if you enter our awesome competition) during a Kasabian gig in Paris. Not your average kit launch, but then Umbro is fast gaining a reputation for thinking outside the box:

And here are some official pics of the new kit:

First thoughts? I’m a fan – it’s clean, simple and the white cuffs are a nice touch; in fact, I prefer it to the current home kit. Some of you may find it too basic, but I think it’s reet classy, and as with most new Umbro kits, it looks built to last.

    Really like it. I think more teams should go back to basics in regards to kit design, just because you can make a kit a plethora of colour, doesn’t mean you should.

    The shirt’s fine, it looks a little cheap in these photos but actually it’s quite a nice looking material.

    If only they’d used the shirt crest on the shorts, the red one ruins the kit for me.

    And the keeper kit is awful – really awful.

  3. Meji says:

    You gotta be joking me. The guy makes the shirt look horrible because of his embarrassing physique.

  4. Meji says:

    The kit is nice but have an actual athlete debut it rather than some shit band.

    The very definition of “meh”

    Anybody else find this part a little strange:

    “Umbro launched its new England Away Kit during a Kasabian gig in Paris.”

    Now unless there is also a Paris in England (and there could be, I’m no geographer) why the heck would they release the new England kit somewhere other than in England?

  7. Chringle says:

    @Adam: It’s a little strange considering that I understood the kit would be released ‘on field’ when England play Egypt on March 3rd.

  8. [...] took the unusual step of unveiling their new away shirt at a Kasabian gig in Paris, with frontman Tom Meighan sporting the little red number as he walked out for the encore, prompting a chorus of boos from the French [...]

    adam: it was released in paris because it’s the away kit… umbro’s attempt at clever marketing
