95: The influence of Umbro in football at 23a Princess Street, Manchester 8 — 14 April 2019 Entrance is free

MUNDIAL Magazine and Classic Football Shirts have come together to present ‘95’ — an exhibition celebrating the influence of Umbro in football on the brand’s 95th anniversary, set in Manchester, their hometown.

MUNDIAL and CFS tell the story of Umbro’s influence in football

Umbro is regarded as one of contemporary sportswear’s most authentic brands and a quintessential name in British sport. From its beginnings as the Humphreys Brothers working from the upstairs of their mum’s pub to outfitting every single team in the 1966 World Cup, the Double Diamond brand was at the forefront of the teamwear and football apparel industry almost from the get-go.

The exhibition will illuminate the stories behind beautiful archival pieces

In ‘95’, MUNDIAL and CFS tell the story from humble beginnings to World Cup glory, from its place as the Choice Of Champions to the production of some of European football’s most iconic kits at the end of the century and critically acclaimed contemporary offerings for teams around the globe.

95: The influence of Umbro in football

The exhibition will illuminate the stories behind beautiful archival pieces alongside displays of original shirts as well as the story of the brand itself, from its inception to its bright present.

95: The influence of Umbro in football at 23a Princess Street, Manchester 8 — 14 April 2019 Entrance is free
