Football kit news from the Scottish Premier League as the new Hibernian ‘Thank You NHS’ Macron home shirt has been revealed.
The 2020-21 Hibs home jersey is green with white sleeves.
Both the crew neck collar and cuffs are coloured dark green as is the trim where the sleeves start.
A white Macron logo is placed on the right breast whilst the Hibernian FC crest is placed on the left breast.
Instead of having a shirt sponsor the club have decided to use the centre of the football shirt to thank the heroic efforts of the NHS staff during the Coronavirus pandemic.
The club have also announced that the first fixture of the 2020-21 season will be ‘Thank You NHS Day’ where they will welcome 100’s of NHS staff to the game.
Ronald Gordon the Hibernian Chairman said, “In sport we celebrate our heroes and our stars. The NHS have shown they are our true heroes and our stars – they have valiantly cared for and nurtured us through the most difficult and challenging health crisis of our lives. Their efforts on behalf of all of us, which still continue today, have been magnificent and Hibernian wants to say thank you and celebrate them in the most meaningful way that we can.
“Additionally, we will be raising money and inviting NHS heroes to our games at Easter Road, and the club and our players will be working with our friends and colleagues at NHS Lothian to deliver a programme of health promotion and community service that will raise awareness and inform our entire community. I’m very proud, because this initiative speaks to the character and purpose of Hibernian Football Club.”
