Umbro - Sponsorships


Umbro has produced kits for many notable football teams since establishment. Its first kit was produced in 1934, for Manchester City, who won the FA Cup that year.

Umbro is currently the official sports manufacturer of the English FA Cup and official sponsor of the new Wembley Stadium. Umbro will partner The FA in the further development of the National Football Centre (NFC) at Burton-upon-Trent, becoming the title sponsor of the Centre. Umbro is also the exclusive supplier of footballs to The FA. The company has been the title sponsor of The FA Umbro Fives since 2007, The FA's national 5-a-side competition. The FA Umbro Fives national final takes place at Wembley Stadium every year.

Umbro has also manufactured kits for Athletics and rugby league.

Umbro was the majority owner (94%) of United Soccer Leagues, the parent organization for North America's lower division men's soccer (tiers two through four in the American Soccer Pyramid), and the second tier women's league (W-League) and youth league (Super Y-League).

During the 2009 USL First Division season, the Carolina RailHawks, Charleston Battery, Vancouver Whitecaps, Rochester Rhinos, Austin Aztex, and Puerto Rico Islanders all wore Umbro kits.

During the 2012 USLPro season, the Dayton Dutch Lions wore Umbro.
