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.
