History

Umbro was established as a sportswear company in a workshop in Wimslow, Greater Manchester by Harold and Wallace Humphreys in 1924. Originally using the name Humphreys Brothers, they took the 'UM' from Humphreys and the 'BRO' from Brothers to create the new company name. Particularly known for supplying football kits (such as for the England team) they also made specialist kit for other sports including tennis, athletics and basketball. They introduced the first replica football kits in 1959 and started making football boots in 1985.
