Hartlepool United have revealed the date their new home kit for the 2018/19 season will go on sale.

Details of the club's new kits - both home and away - have been scarce since the end of last season.

But the wait is almost over as the new BLK design will be available for fans to see on Thursday, July 26.

Pools are set to hold a family open day at the Vic that day with the club are asking fans to turn out in their droves to be part of Pools' new team photo ahead of the 2018/19 season, as well as getting sneak peak at the new kit.

Those in attendance will also have the chance to mingle with players, take part in fun and games set up on the pitch as well as be part of the squad snap.

The new home kit will also go on sale from the club's new shop.

Gates will be open from 3pm when supporters will join us in The Prestige Group Cyril Knowles Stand for the annual team photo.

The club shop will open from 3.30pm. Entry to the event is free.

And the day will be rounded off with a Fans Forum, which will be held at the nearby Corporation Club and will give supporters the chance to hear from chairman Raj Singh, Craig Hignett, Matthew Bates, Mark Maguire and Ian Scobbie. Details of tickets will be released by the club soon.

Chief executive Mark Maguire said: "It’s really important that we bring the club together; players, staff, the board and of course the fans.

"We hope this open day will provide an opportunity for everyone to get together before the serious business starts.

"It is only right that fans get the chance to be part of the team photo – without them there simply wouldn’t be a club and the open day is hopefully a chance for us to show our gratitude.

"As for the fans forum we’ve promised openness and honesty and it’s important we give fans the chance to ask any questions they have face to face. We are committed to regular events like this but hope as many fans as possible can join us as we build up for the season."
