New Home Kit Launched
Thursday, 3rd Jun 2021 12:19
Town have launched the new home kit for the 2021/22 season which features black pin stripes on the shirt and a return to white shorts.
The adidas-produced shirt has the three stripes on the shoulder but not down the sleeve and a round neck. There is also a return to the modern badge after the pre-1995 version was used in 2020/21, the 40th anniversary of the UEFA Cup win.
The shirt also bears Ed Sheeran’s sponsorship logo relating to his upcoming tour on the front and as in 2021/21, a thank-you to the NHS on the back.
Supporters will again be given the opportunity to add that to their replica shirts for £3.50, £8,000 having been raised for the Colchester & Ipswich Hospitals Charity in 2020/21.
NHS staff from Ipswich Hospital joined Town first-team players and members of the ITFC Women’s team for the launch photoshoot.
“Once again we thank Ipswich Town and their fans for their ongoing support. The monies raised by fans so far have been used to purchase comfortable seating for a brand new staff rest space away from the wards which we are delighted to be opening in June,” Nick Hulme, chief executive of East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust, which runs Ipswich and Colchester hospitals, told the club site.
“The opportunity for healthcare workers to be involved in the official photoshoot was very well received and we know the club will be supported by many of our colleagues when the new season kicks off in August.”
Town wore blue shorts in 2020/21, also in tribute to the strip worn in the UEFA Cup final in 1981, but the new kit reverts to the more traditional white shorts.
The shirt is now available for pre-order in Planet Blue and online at www.itfcshop.com and will be dispatched from the end of June.
Those who pre-order will be notified when their order has been dispatched or is ready to collect if they have chosen to click and collect from Planet Blue.
Supporters wishing to use their remaining season ticket refund vouchers (from 2019/20 season) can pre-order the shirt in store at Planet Blue.

The Professional Footballers Who Never Play Football by Broganonthewing
There have been many changes to the English game in the last 40 years. The majority of these changes, if not all of them have all been influenced or dictated by money, both the making and saving of it.
Catch-19 by LegendRay
How many others on the site remember April 15 1961, the day, as TWTD recalls, when Town last beat Lincoln away in the league?
Cook is No Gamechanger by BossMan
I was 12 when we won the FA Cup so saw early success in my early years as a Town fan. How spoilt I was to see Beattie, Wark, Muhren Thijssen et al.
Building a High Performance Team at ITFC by Jaime_Clapham
Change is hard. Building a team is hard. Just reflect on what it’s like within the organisations that you work in, or when you are kicking off a new project. A football club and team are no different.
Marathon Blues by wadey
As some of you may be aware, we lost our little boy Tyler on 1st April 2012, aged just 15 months old. There was no cause declared and he just passed away in his sleep. Since then, I’ve tried to raise as much money for charity in memory of him.
