Fans Influence New Strip Designs
(Written by ShedRule)
Dundee United supporters had a direct influence on the design of the new home and away strips which were launched this week.
Supporters were asked to vote on their favourite design at the end of last year, with the new strips coming out tops in the survey.
The new strips are also produced by "Hummel", with the club`s main sponsor - "Anglian Home Improvements" - across the front.
The strips will be on sale from the 10th of July, but supporters can place advance orders at the club shop on Tannadice street from this week.
The home shirt is mainly Tangerine, with black arrows down the sleeves. The home shorts are black, with tangerine arrows down the sides and the socks are also Tangerine.
The away shirt is white, with black and tangerine arrows down the sleeves. The away shorts and socks are both white.
"All at the club are delighted with the new strips," admitted Dundee United Marketing Director, Stephen Thompson.
"The fact that we consulted our fans shows that we do listen and work with them, while working alongside our kit supplier Hummel."
"Last year was our first full year with Hummel and we were delighted with sales of all our replica kit and leisurewear"
Hummel are currently United`s shirt manufactures, because a Dundee United supporter working for the company set up the deal.
