When the season was over Leeds United fans must have breathed a sigh of relief. It was a tough season for them. Injuries, change of manager, and loss of form meant they were in a relegation battle for most of the season.
Thankfully for them, the club secured its survival on the last day. Now that the season is over and they can relax and look forward to another year in the English Premier League.
However, there are other things to look forward to. As the season is coming to a close, jerseys for the next season are either leaked or released. Leeds United fans seem to have gotten a glimpse of their away kit next season.
According to leaks, the jersey will be yellow. Blue stripes will run along its shoulder. Their sponsor SBOTOP will be in the centre of the body. In the top left corner, one can see the Adidas logo, with the club crest on the opposite side. An illustration of the kit on various Leeds United players can be seen below –
Most fans are buzzing at the look and are excited to wear it next season. However, the away jersey is not confirmed yet. In the last few weeks, a lot of fan concepts are spreading. Despite the different designs in these concepts, the yellow and blue pattern is consistent, which is all that matters to the fans.

It reminds them of the good old days. The jersey is a throwback to their glory days in the ’70s under Don Revie and the following period when they were a mainstay in the Premier League. This era is considered to be their golden age where the club won most of its trophies.
When Leeds was promoted in 2009 from the League One to Championship after years of remaining in the third division limbo, they had once again donned a yellow away kit. Again when they released a yellow jersey in 2017, it set them on the path to promotion in 2020.
As long as the colour combination remains the same, it is likely that the away kits will sell out as soon as they release. These colours have usually been associated with the best moments in Leed’s recent and distant past.
Leeds fans will be clearly excited for next season after a difficult one. The new jersey and new reinforcements could be a set-up for a better season under new manager Jesse Marsch.
