Football fanatics up and down the UK are now at a loose end following the climax of the domestic season.
In Canada, the FIFA Women’s World Cup is currently in full swing and keeping many armchair fans entertained, however the Premier League still stands head and shoulders above other events within the football calendar – a competition which triggers debate across offices nationwide, divides friends and family, and ignites true passion.
The unveiling of a football team’s new kit for the forthcoming season is a highlight for any football fan, helping to fill the void of the off-season. The summer is also a busy time for football clubs, who will be conducting their transfer business as well as sending out the new strips to excited consumers.
This year, myHermes has teamed up with Everton Football Club to provide their fans with more choice and convenience when ordering their new strips from the official Everton online store. For the first time supporters of the ‘Toffees’ will have the option to pick-up their replica shirts from any of the 4,500 myHermes ParcelShops across the UK.
The number of myHermes ParcelShops is on the rise and currently 70% of the UK population is within one mile of an outlet. Therefore, Everton fans – wherever their location – can now take advantage of this Click & Collect service.
As you can see from the pictures, the new design from Umbro is inspired by iconic Everton shirts of the past, and features an attractive V-neck collar. Club captain Phil Jagielka thinks the new kit will be a hit with the fans.
He said: “Evertonians are a really proud set of fans, so they will be really pleased with this year’s design, which has lots of great features. The myHermes partnership benefits our fans up and down the country.”
We agree with Phil and we’re looking forward to helping those supporters look the part before the big kick-off in August.
