After an away jersey that came out of left field, West Ham United assured fans Wednesday that the club will be staying close to its roots for home games next season.
West Ham and Umbro revealed the new home kit for the 2017-2018 season, featuring the classic claret and blue design as well as a chevron stripe angled down the chest of the jersey.

“Everyone knows that West Ham United is claret and blue, it’s who we are. This season’s kit is a really nice take on that theme and I think the Claret and Blue Army will really like it,” club captain Mark Noble said in a statement. “It’s the material that is the most important for us players and when we tried it on at the photoshoot the boys were all really impressed with how it felt, and we are really looking forward to playing in it next season.”
In late May West Ham released its away jersey for the upcoming season, a sharp black design with a striking sky blue outline on the collar as well as crest.
