This seasons blue away kit has caught the imagination of the Leeds United fans in huge numbers. The home kit isn’t bad either and last season we were praised for both home and away kits, Kappa doing a very popular job for the football club. Is it time to bring the half and half kit from 1997, a kit that has a history going all the way back to the early years of Leeds United.
People outside of football can play down the importance of kits all they want but those who are inside the football bubble know how important kits are to fans. Every single year the same debates begin, the leaked shirts begin to circle, normally fake as the excitement builds ahead of the official announcement. Leeds have caught on in recent years, turning the videos into a full on evening at the pavilion for a limited number of season ticket holders. The money raised by decent kits is also huge for clubs, and Leeds have done very well since leaving Macron and joining up with Kappa.
One of the most popular Leeds kits was the half and half kit that was released in 1997 and was worn for a couple of seasons. Puma were the kit makers and although such a simple idea it hasn’t been used much over the years at the club. Back in the early years it was common, and it seemed to catch the imagination of fans in the late 1990’s. Should kappa take a trip down memory lane and look to release the kit with their twist? It would be nice for the fans to have some involvement in the kits at some stage.
