While the Scottish Championship drew the light with Steven Gerrard’s Rangers exploits, Hibernian FC finished in third place and is already kicking off next season by presenting their new home shirt.
After four seasons in collaboration with Macron, the Edinburgh club will now be equipped by Joma from the start of the school year. Founded in 1875 by Irish Catholic immigrants, the Scottish club has a great history on which the Spanish equipment manufacturer relied to make the tunic that will be worn by the Hibees at Easter Road.
For its first season in partnership with Hibernian FC, the Spanish brand has fully entered the lineage of the club’s historic jerseys while respecting the latter’s DNA. We thus find the famous green jersey with its white sleeves which was democratized at the end of the 1930s. However, Joma shows his creativity by implanting a map of Edinburgh, the city where the club is located. The Joma logo is revealed in white on the chest and in green on the sleeves. The historical tribute paid by the Spanish equipment supplier does not stop only with the colors since the logo of the club used in the 1950s is presented on the back of the neck.
In the club’s press release, the management showed all their enthusiasm for their collaboration with the Spanish brand. “Our partnership with Joma gave us a greater level of creativity, which was not possible with previous partners. They understand our brand aspirations and, by working closely with their design team, we were able to create something completely unique for our supporters and the City ”, said Peter Burt, Creative Director of Hibernian.
