Middlesbrough have released their new home shirt for the 2021/22 season – and fans have been quick to react on social media.

Wednesday, 9th June 2021, 12:34 pm

Shirts are available to pre-order via the club’s website and are priced at £50 in adult sizes (S - 4XL) and £42 for children’s sizes (0-6mths - 13/14yrs).

The shirt has been designed by hummel and has been inspired by Teesside’s iconic Transporter Bridge.

@MatthewBye13: Love the Transporter Bridge print! Promotion winning kit?

@BrowneSauce12: Well this is massively underwhelming

@benhollifield8: Very big fan of this can’t lie

@_mstephenson88: I’m not sure about that

@Crouch59: Nice until 32 RED was slapped on it and somebody had a child draw the Transporter Bridge on

@StockportZidane: I’m edging towards liking it a lot actually, it’ll grow on me

@Doy9509: Shocked at how many hate this! I think it’s unreal hoping it’s red shorts and socks

@AndyKenyon6: I like it, instantly recognisable as Boro and with the Transporter Bridge print, it gives it a local connection

@Smoggyjonny: £42 for a kids shirt is ridiculous

@smoggyontour86: I like it, it’s different, design is nice. Love the band. Sponsor doesn’t look too bad on it either.

@ConnerKacperski: Not too big on this if I'm honest. Hope the away kit is something special.

@Stonehouse88: It'll have to grow on me, but red shorts and sock

@DailyBoro: Worst kit I’ve ever seen in my life. Went way too far with that Transporter pattern didn’t know we had five bridges
