Another club is joining the Umbro family - but they're a bit different to the rest.
We've agreed a deal with Hashtag United, the innovative amateur team established by Spencer Owen - best known to his millions of YouTube fans as Spencer FC.
We've already been supplying kits to the team, but soon, we'll be unveiling bespoke 2017 kits that have been designed in conjunction with the club.
Established in 2016 by Spencer, Hashtag United have attracted worldwide attention for their innovative approach to the game. The team are made up of amateur players who, rather than playing in a conventional league, are in their own unique divisional structure where they play against a range of opposition teams including Premier League club staff teams, national FA staff and celebrity teams.
Points gained in these games count towards a target set at the start of the ‘season’ which will see the team gaining promotion or relegation, with rewards or punishments awarded accordingly. This unique approach, coupled with the professional level in which the Hashtag United games are filmed and broadcast on YouTube, has built up a huge audience for the club.
Alongside their on-field squad, Hashtag also a professional eSports team, with three pro FIFA players in their ranks who will compete whilst wearing the new Umbro-designed kits.
Those new kits will be revealed soon, but for now you can catch up on the progress of Hashtag as they take on foreign opposition for the first time in their latest episode. And don't forget to # it!
