The strip was released "in recognition of the vital role Foundation of Hearts pledgers continue to play" with the tagline 'Pledge for Life' on the back of the black top.

A spokesperson for the club said: "We knew at the design stage that this would prove to be a popular kit with supporters and we are delighted with the overwhelmingly positive response which has seen it become our fastest selling non-home jersey.

“All three of our 2019/20 Umbro kits have been well received and we look forward to seeing Hearts fans and players wearing them with pride this season.”
