Pre-orders came flying in for Boro’s new home shirt this week, and the quickest off the mark was surprised with the news he’d be receiving his shirt for free.

Following a few teaser images earlier in the week, our 2021/22 hummel home shirt was unveiled on Wednesday, complete with iconic white band and unique Transporter Bridge detailing.

Boro fans were straight out of the blocks to place their pre-orders, but none quicker than Mark Fleming - who had purchased by 12.01pm and later received a phone call from our retail team to let him know the good news.

“The shirt is for my 15-year-old son, Zachary” Mark explains.

“We’re based in the Midlands, so it’s nice for him to have the shirt. There are quite a few Championship teams around here so we go to the away games when we can, as well as the Riverside when we’re back up north.

“I’m from Boro originally, and the Transporter Bridge is just synonymous with home. I was always planning to buy the shirt, but as soon as I saw those first pictures on Monday, I was ready to sit and wait for it.”

Shirts are still available to pre-order online only from MFC Official Direct. Supporters can select worldwide delivery or click & collect at the checkout.

The shirt will be officially on sale from 9am on Saturday 12 June, online and from our stadium store at the Riverside Stadium - which will be open from 9am - 6pm on Saturday, and 10am - 4pm on Sunday. 

COVID-19 safety measures are in place and masks must be worn by visitors unless medically exempt. Fitting rooms remain closed at this time. Our 28-day returns policy can be found here.

Please be advised that shirt printing is not currently available.
