The new West Ham 2022-23 home kit will be launched tomorrow after a Hammers tease on the club’s official website.
West Ham fans love to see a bit of effort made with their kits whether they respect tradition, go retro or try to be original.
It seems next season’s new West Ham kits will be a mixture of those things.
Rumours have abound for several weeks about West Ham’s new season kits and when they might be launched.
Well we now know that the new West Ham 2022-23 home kit will be launched tomorrow after a Hammers tease on the club’s official website.
An email shot to West Ham fans on Wednesday states: “Your 2022/23 home kit coming tomorrow.
“Made for the massive moments.”
The email contains a link to West Ham’s official club store – which will be taking orders for the new strip from Thursday.
Pictures purporting to be the club’s new home shirt have been on the internet and social media for the last couple of weeks.
The retro shirt will be a new take on the West Ham home shirt of the early 1990s.
When the new away and third strips are revealed remains to be seen.
But it is usually not too far behind the home kit announcement.
West Ham have had a several black kits in recent years and a picture posted in a story from Claret and Hugh shows a black kit with a flourescent peach colour trim.
The site claims the kit could be the new West Ham away kit for the 2022-23 season but could not yet confirm.
The black and peach kit in the image on Claret and Hugh bears a striking resemblance to a concept kit published by Twitter account Concept Kits back in December.
And the insiders made a claim about a potential white and orange third kit too.
“The away is said to be black with a supposed image leaked below which claims to be the away kit but can not yet be verified, a third kit is claimed to be white and orange,” Claret and Hugh state.
West Ham have a history of white kits but none which have had the colour orange in them.
So, if correct, this looks to be a mix of old and original from Umbro.
Hammers fans reacted by claiming the kit ‘looked like a Leeds strip’.
Whether the alleged white and orange third kit looks anything like that remains to be seen.
Supporters will find out soon enough with the kits set to launch on the club shop for pre-order in the near future.
