Umbro was founded in 1924 in Winslow, Cheshire, England by brothers Harold and Wallace Humphreys. The company sells soccer (also known as football in some parts of the world) clothing and footwear. Although the company was owned and operated out of England for many years, it was sold in 2012 to New York based American company Iconix Group.
The company supplies many teams around the world with soccer uniforms and gear. They also offer “official” soccer team clothing and shoes to the public. Umbro is the official soccer supplier for most teams in Africa, the Americas, and Europe. The company also supplies uniforms and gear for handball, volleyball, and curling.
Umbro currently has 1,700 employees and has moved headquarters to New York City, New York as of 2013.
