Forest Green Rovers has appointed the Danish sportswear brand Hummel as the club’s official kit supplier for the 2018-2020 seasons.

But fans will have to wait until Saturday's match against Bristol Rovers to get a look at the new kit due to logistical issues with Hummel, which mean that Rovers won't be wearing the new kit in tonight's match.

Tom Sinclair, sport market manager UK & Ireland for Hummel, said:

“We are extremely pleased to be partnering with Forest Green Rovers for the 2018/20 seasons and beyond.

“As a company with similar values we greatly admire the work you are doing and look forward to doing some great projects as we begin our journey together. 

“This season we have partnered with the club to co-design and develop for you two stunning bespoke Home and Away kits.

“It had been planned to launch the new home kit in time for your game against Leeds tonight but unfortunately due to logistical issues this has not been possible, rest assured we are working hard to resolve these issues and we look forward to launching both kits in the very near future. 

“Both home and away kits will be available to pre order from next week and the club shop will take delivery of both home and away kits in all sizes prior to the start of the season on the 4th of August.

“We apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused to fans eager to get their hands on the new kits.”
