AFC Bournemouth have released their new 2020/21 home kit ahead of the re-start of the 2019/20 Premier League campaign.

The original sponsorship with Mansion Group was due to expire at the end of June rather than the conclusion of the current season, which has been suspended for the past three months due to the global Coronavirus pandemic. M88 had recently had their UK licence was revoked by the Gambling Commission.

The new training kit was the first to be released via social media. Using a yellow and blue theme from kit makers Umbro.

AFC Bournemouth had been linked with a potential NHS “Thank you” message on shirts, according to the Daily Mail, however, AFC Bournemouth have instead announced a new short-term shirt sponsor package with stadium sponsors Vitality.

Due to this Vitality will appear on the new shirts for the remaining 9 games of the current season, which is set to kick off this week against Crystal Palace live on the BBC, which historically will be the first Premier League game to be shown on terrestrial television.

As the current sponsorship deal is a short term the new home kit is yet to go on sale.

AFC Bournemouth commercial director Rob Mitchell told

β€œVitality has been a great supporter of the club over the past five years and I am delighted that we have been able to build upon this at such an important and exciting time of the season.

β€œVitality is a brand which has a focus on health and wellbeing with a headquarters in the heart of our town.

β€œSo, for a club which prides itself on community and healthy lifestyles, this is a perfect partnership and one that we love being a part of.”

The new shirt is a modern twist on the traditional red and black stripes, described as “a bold gradient stripe jacquard on the front, back and cuff”.
