Hull FC are a proud club with terrific history which was earlier today remembered and embodied in their match day gear for 2023 which called back to their success in 1983.
However, eyes are now on the present and one of Super League’s biggest clubs have been frustrated in recent seasons.
After winning back-to-back Challenge Cups alongside semi-final appearances in Super League, Hull have only made the playoffs once in the five years since.
In an effort to change that and make good on the potential of the club, the Black and Whites have brought in one of Super League’s finest ever coaches in the shape of Tony Smith who has brought success to a number of clubs an reached six Grand Finals with two different teams.
Also arriving at the club is a number of exciting signings like halves Tex Hoy and Jake Trueman as well as Leeds duo Liam Sutcliffe and Brad Dwyer. These men are really starting to usher in a new era at the MKM Stadium but a new era requires a new look and that’s what Hull FC have delivered following in the footsteps of rivals Hull KR and Leeds becoming only the third side to release their 2023 home shirt.
Released under the tag line “history reinvented” the Hull FC jersey echoes the past with a traditional black and white stripped kit.
White is the predominant colour with black hoops which come in threes with two thinner hoops either side of a larger one as this pattern goes down the kit.
The jersey is adorned by a touch of gold around the sleeves and collar.
Like the match day training gear, it echoes the 1983 Championship winning Hull jersey but reinvented for the modern game.
Hull FC fans will hope to see their club reignite the history of the great club in 2023 in the shirt in 2023.
