The Michigan Club is proud to debut its new 2011 Jersey.  The team worked at several options before deciding to work with English company Kukri on the strip.  Kukri worked in conjunction with several senior Michigan players on the design.

The horizontal stripes emphasize the tradition of the club, now in its 52nd year, while the UM color scheme highlight the tight relationship with the school; most players are either alumni or grad students at the U.  While the fit, collar, and fabric of the jersey reflect the technological advances made in the last several years, the jersey remains a tribute to history.

While Michigan has used solid color or non-traditional patterns on their shirt since the 1980s, long ago the standard was the "hoop" design.

Special thanks to sponsors HyperFit USA and Frech Family Hops.

The team will debut the new look this weekend against middle-of-the-table Battle Creek Griffons in Battle Creek.
