Cambridge United shirt named as one of the top kits in the world
Cambridge United’s home shirt for the 2020/21 season has been named as one of the top 100 kits in the world.
A panel of bloggers that featured Ellis Platten, Gavin Hope, John Devlin, Kit Crimes, Museum of Jerseys, Pedro Almeida, Phil Delves, The Kitsman and FOOTY.COM placed the shirt, designed by the U’s Gareth Daniels and hummel, at number 88.
Championing the kit was Ben Hyde, of FOOTY.COM, who said: “To the surprise of absolutely nobody, hummel has got things spot on once again for Cambridge United.
“Last year I fell in love with their incredible away shirt, but this time it’s all about this terrific home design. I’ve got nothing against Oxford United, but it’s fair to say Cambridge have won The Shirt Race this season.
“Alongside hummel’s trademark chevrons, the stripes simply look fantastic. Having the club’s motto ‘United in Endeavour’ included again is a really nice touch, but this time their lovely shirts are being matched by some cracking performances out on the pitch.”
The list is part of a new campaign launched by football gear comparison website, FOOTY.COM. Since the beginning of October, the site has been counting down the top 100 football shirts of 2020/21.
United are away to Scunthorpe United today (October 17).
