Hull FC have revealed an all-black jersey for the 2019 Super League season.
Next year marks the 120th anniversary of the purchase of the Airlie Birds’ spiritual home the Boulevard, with the new ‘principal’ playing shirt designed around the strip used when the club first moved to the iconic old ground.
Hull FC are known throughout the rugby league world for those famous Black and White irregular hoops, but other designs such as ‘V’s and even All-Black strips, whilst less commonly known, have historically been used.
The 2019 strip is nothing new. As well as the traditional Airlie Birds tag, Hull once upon a time were known as the Hull All Blacks, and later on as the Cream, which is where the fanzine name Up the Cream originates from.
Just like 2018 Hull will have the option of black or white playing shorts, although the latter, from memory at least, where only used three times this season, pre-season against Catalans, against Wigan in Wollongong, and in the Cup against Featherstone.
Hull FC’s 2019 playing shirt is already on sale, and is available to purchase from the club stores and online here.
As well as a new playing kit the club also revealed a stylish looking training range, the first for 2019.
Most of the garments are in traditional Black and White, whilst some items feature a bit of gold on them.
The training range goes on sale on Monday 15th October but all products are available for pre-order now.
