These are the new Boro kits 2018/19, Middlesbrough’s new home and away shirts for the upcoming Championship season. Made by Hummel, who inked a five year deal with the club to replace Adidas, the new Boro uniforms officially went on sale earlier today (June 15, 2018).
Boro’s new home kit is a tribute to their 1986 strip- a crucial one in the club’s history. Both the home and the darker change strip have 32Red as sponsor- the first of a three year deal, with Ramsdens moving to the back. Boro are one of five Championship clubs (and counting!) to have 32Red as their primary shirt sponsor for the 2018/19 season.
The lyrics of the song Infant Hercules, penned by Joe Hammill appears inside the collar of the new home shirt. Boro finished 5th in the 17/18 league season but lost their playoff semifinal to Villa.
