Promotion back to the Premier League brought with it a record-breaking kit deal for Leeds United. Back in July 2020 the long running rumour that adidas would become the clubs official kit partner was confirmed. It was announced the German sportswear giants would produce both playing and training kit for all Leeds United teams over the next five years. adidas became Leeds United’s official kit partner for the first time in their history, in what marked a new era in the Premier League, following their Sky Bet Championship winning centenary season. Angus Kinnear said at the time…
We are excited adidas has become our official kit partner. We’re looking forward to our return to the Premier League with anticipation next season and partnering with adidas, who are one of the most recognisable names in sport, represents a new beginning for the club. At Leeds United we continue to grow on and off the pitch and this record-breaking deal is another important step for the club.
But it’s fair to say fans have been left a little underwhelmed by the adidas offerings so far. The home shirts with their blue and yellow trim have been clean but standard off the shelf designs whilst the change kits have been a mixed bag. Last seasons blue and green striped away kit at least harked back to 1994-1995 away shirt but the other change kits have been off the peg options also worn by other teams. Last season third kit will go down as a cult classic but only because of Raphinha’s deeds wearing it. This seasons blue away shirt is a but too Chelsea and the less said about the lilac offering the better. Fans have just been crying out for a yellow away shirt!
But now concept kit site KonceptKitz have produced a yellow Leeds United shirt design, inspired by the 2002-2004 Nike away shirt, that has wowed Leeds United fans. With comments such as "That’s a beaut", "Love love love", "These are incredible! So much better than any of this seasons or last", "Would 100% buy this" and "Ohhhhh this is beautiful" it’s clear the design has hit the right note. Angus Kinnear has previously claimed that yellow shirts don’t sell, but if these comments are anything to go by KonceptKitz’s could be on to a winner here. Now the club and adidas just need convining!
