To celebrate the arrival of new striker Conor Sammon, the club today unveiled its new bespoke Puma 2016/17 home shirt. The jersey, which will be launched at the end of the month once again sports the name of Save the Children and the club is proud to continue to support and raise awareness of the charity’s work across Edinburgh.
Conor commented: “I am immensely proud to be wearing the iconic maroon jersey. It represents an amazing history and I’m sure the fans will love it as much as I do. I am looking forward wearing it in front of full houses at Tynecastle throughout the season.”
Neil Mathers, Head of Save the Children in Scotland also commented:
“We’re greatly looking forward to a new season of partnership with the club - it’s so exciting to see a stadium of players and fans with our logo on the front of their shirts.
Working with Hearts has enhanced the work we do in Edinburgh and has made it possible to work with children and families in some of the most disadvantaged parts of the city. We’re also working closely with Big Hearts and will benefit from their remarkable fans’ volunteer programme.
Hearts fans have been exceptionally generous in giving their time and support; we are hugely proud to be part of this amazing family.
The new shirt looks magnificent and we look forward to seeing the team run out in it this season and to supporting the launch at the beginning of July.”
The new jersey is scheduled to go on sale in early July with pre-orders being taken from Monday 20th June. To thank the fans for the unprecedented levels of support being enjoyed by the club, prices for all replica kit will be frozen for the season ahead.
