This is the new Hibs home top 2014/15, Hibernian FC’s new principal uniform for the upcoming season. Hibs were relegated from the SPL last season and will be competing in the Scottish Championship this season. The new Hibernian home kit has been made by Nike and was officially unveiled on July 3, 2014.
The kit, according to Hibs, is a tribute to Gordon Smith, Bobby Johnstone, Lawrie Reilly, Eddie Turnbull and Willie Ormond, members of the “Famous Five” of Hibernian. It is the “modern equivalent” of the kit worn by the club during 1923-29, the period in which each member of the Famous Five were born.
The new Hibs home strip is sponsored by Marathonbet, who recently inked a two year deal to replace Crabbie’s as the main sponsor
The kit is here seen modelled by the grandsons of members of the famous five, with the words “their memory marches on” on the left shoulder.
