We are delighted to unveil our new away kit for season 2020-21.
The stylish charcoal and purple offering is available to pre-order now, with deliveries due to be fulfilled in July.
It follows hot on the heels of last month’s reveal of the home kit that our players will wear with pride next term – which quickly became the fastest-selling strip in the history of Hibernian FC and was hailed by Scotland’s Minister for Public Health, Sport and Wellbeing, Joe FitzPatrick.
Both shirts convey our thanks to the frontline heroes of the NHS, who are going above and beyond on a daily basis to nurse the nation through an unprecedented period.
Designed in consultation with NHS Scotland and the Scottish Government – while aimed at appreciating the efforts of the health service throughout the UK – we’ll be working in partnership with NHS Lothian and the Hibernian Community Foundation to deliver a layer of meaningful communications, engagement and community service.
The first league home game played before a crowd will also be ‘Thank You NHS Day’ and we will welcome hundreds of NHS staff along as our guests.
We are planning further fundraising and expect to hand over a six-figure donation by the end of the season, with a minimum of 100 tickets donated to NHS staff and other key workers for all our home matches through our ticket fund. Donations to that can be made here.
As with the home strip, supporters will be asked to pay the sum of £5 to have the ‘Thank You NHS’ transfer applied, with all profits being donated to our local charity, Edinburgh & Lothians Health Foundation.
ELHF supports longer lives, better lived. They work in strategic partnership with NHS Lothian and other partners who share their vision and values to make a difference to people’s health and wellbeing on a local, regional and national level.
Last year they contributed over £5 million in charitable grants to health-improvement projects. As the official charity partner of NHS Lothian, their current focus is on supporting staff and patient wellbeing though their Covid-19 Rapid Response Fund.

We are pleased to report that the Hibernian Clubstore is shipping online orders again.
The Clubstore remains closed in person, as we stick to Government guidelines, but you can get your hands on a range of exclusive Hibees items via www.hiberniandirect.co.uk – including our new home and away kits.
We thank you for your continued patience as the team work their way through a backlog of orders, so please allow extra time for existing orders to move through the postal system.
As ever, if you have any questions relating to an order or the Hibernian Clubstore in general, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Because of the irregular working hours at present, the Clubstore phoneline will not be in operation.
I have pre-ordered my new Hibernian kits. When can I expect them to be delivered?
When we launched the strip, we advised that we hoped to be in a position to be able to deliver – or allow for collection – at some point in July. As soon as we’re in a position to confirm anything more specific, we’ll do so on club channels.
My order confirmation doesn’t say anything about the ‘Thank You NHS’ message.
Supporters can have the ‘Thank You NHS’ transfer applied for an additional £5, with all profits being donated to our local NHS charity, Edinburgh & Lothians Health Foundation. Supporters must tick the box that says ‘Add Printing | NHS Sponsor Logo (+£5)’ that sits directly below where you choose the size of your desired strip.
I’m not sure about the sizing of the new strips.
You’ll find a Size Guide on the Hibernian Direct website, with strips no different in sizing to the current season’s ones.
To help the Hibernian Clubstore team work their way through orders, please ensure your address details are up to date and that you double-check the size of any items ordered, in addition to the ‘Add Printing | NHS Sponsor Logo (+£5)’ box being ticked.
