Leeds will launch the new away kit for the season tomorrow morning ahead of the Oxford game on Saturday. Last seasons blue with yellow trim will now become the third kit, and all the talk of the new kit seems to be around the rumour that it’s black.

Black certainly isn’t the colour commonly known as Leeds United. Historically and traditionally we wear white, yellow and blue with occasional one-offs. Blue and green stripes, black with yellow pin-stripes and more recently a full gold away kit. The black and yellow pin-stripe may well not be too far from the new away kit if the rumours are true about the new one. A yellow would probably be a surprise given we used the yellow one last season on a few occasions. With the blue still being used that rules that out as well, leaving little options in terms of sticking with the traditional colours.

The new home kit has gone down extremely well and the anticipation for the new away kit is, as always very high. Since Kappa have taken over from Macron the kits have almost been faultless, the un-sponsored white and yellows and the last season the blue specifically have gone down very well. Although there is absolutely no confirmation the kit is black it has been talked about for some time. The staff in the store don’t even know to avoid leaks so the club, as seems to be the case at the moment are doing things very well behind the scenes.

About Author

Born in Gibraltar, raised in Scotland from a very young age. Been a huge fan of Leeds United since I could walk and talk, thanks to my Dad, the English half of me. After a few years in Australia I moved to Leeds, the trips from Scotland down to the city a few times a season didn't cut it. Love the city. Love the people, and the 12 hour round trip to Elland Road is about a 20 minute round trip. Love writing about the club, the more I write the more I feel comfortable doing it. As long as it's enjoyable I'll continue to do so, keep looking to step it up and progress as well. Leeds United is more than just a football team for me, as is it with so many others.
