It is the first kit produced by manufacturers Umbro following two years of Puma shirts.

The maroon home top is described as a “modern reinterpretation of the jersey Umbro designed for the club in 1977” in a Hearts statement. It features a classic white collar design.

Writing on the reverse neck of the shirt reads “This is our story, this is our song” in reference to the iconic line from The Hearts Song.

The kit will go on sale at the Hearts Clubstore at 5pm tonight. Captain Christophe Berra will present the new strip to fans, while other first-team stars will be in attendance.

The club are inviting supporters to attend an event prior to the launch. From 3.30pm at the Heart of Midlothian, beside St Giles Cathedral in Edinburgh’s Old Town, fans will get the opportunity to try and win a free home top by performing their best goal celebration, which will be judged by members of the Hearts squad.
