West Ham United have unveiled their new away kit for the 2020-21 season as the Premier League club celebrates its 125-year anniversary.
Last month, the east London club released their retro home jersey for the upcoming campaign, with the design inspired by the likes of Bobby Moore, Martin Peters and Geoff Hurst, with the kit mirroring what the trio of legends sported during the club’s glory years.
They won the FA Cup and European Cup Winners’ Cup during that decade, and the West Ham legends also helped steer England to World Cup glory in 1966.

As part of the club’s 125th anniversary, the kit is a throwback to the clubs 1960s golden era
And the new away kit appears to be a nod to the club’s golden era of the 1960s, with the strip emblazoned with two horizontal claret lines across the chest, with the rest of the jersey in a sky blue.
The club also had a similar design in 1997, with Dagenham Motors sponsoring the club that season.
Umbro has put together the new concept, which is completed with a unique anniversary two-colour crest. The designs were finalised after discussions with supporters.

England star Declan Rice and club captain Mark Noble are just two of the players who have been pictured modelling the new strip.
West Ham supporters will be hoping they’ll be seeing their side don the new strip in the Premier League next season.
David Moyes’ side have spent the restart fighting the drop, and a point against Watford tonight will secure their top flight future for another season.
The club have endured a steady decline in fortunes, and their perilous position in the top flight is a stark contrast to the lifelong memories created during their years of success.
