Wigan Athletic today announced that UMBRO will be the exclusive supplier of the Latics’ playing and training kit for the forthcoming 2007/2008 season.

Wigan Athletic Chairman Dave Whelan told the official site

‘I am delighted to welcome UMBRO to Wigan Athletic as our new Technical partner.

We have worked very hard to find the right brand to match our ambition as a football club and believe that UMBRO will provide the perfect solution for all of our technical requirements.

‘The deal is an exclusive agreement which means that only JJB Retail stores and wiganathletic.tv will stock the Club’s official UMBRO merchandise’.

Season Ticket Holders will get a sneak preview of the new kit as it will be partially unveiled in the new season ticket campaign during May with the official release date scheduled for later in the summer.

UMBRO’s Director of Football, Simon Marsh said ‘It is with great pleasure that we have now added Wigan Athletic to our International portfolio of contracted teams.

‘They are also one of the few clubs who we have never had the privilege of working alongside in the past’

‘It was evident from the outset that both parties had a desire to work together and I’m therefore delighted that this was achieved.

UMBRO hope this will be a platform for the Club to go on to achieve greater success both on and off the field of play.’

Lets hope that Latics, for once get the top out in time for the summer hol’s and why all the secrecy?
