Leeds United are reportedly very close to agreeing a deal with Adidas that will see the German manufacturer become the club’s new kit manufacturer. The Whites’ current deal with Kappa expires at the end of the current 2019/20 season (5 five year signed at the beginning of the 2015/16 one).
When the club was last present in the Premier League (2004), they wore Nike. They narrowly missed out on promotion in the 2018/19 Championship season, leading the table for most of the year before falling away in the final third of the season. As high as first in Week 32, Marcelo Bielsa’s men had to settle for third spot and were eventually knocked out by Frank Lampard’s Derby in the playoffs.
Leeds are currently second in the Championship, which would mean automatic promotion to the Premier League for 2020/21, should they manage to retain their position. The Whites’ fan base, plus potential PL status, would both be attractive to Adidas, who have never previously outfitted the club.
This is the new Preston away shirt 2019/20, Preston North End’s new alternate strip for the upcoming Championship season. Made by Nike, the release of this away kit comes just days after the club officially unveiled their 2019/20 season home uniform.
PNE will wear a red strip for their games away from Deepdale next season. The club have also announced that their predominantly green third kit from the 2018/19 season will be retained for the 19/20 one.
The away jersey, like the home one, is also sponsored by 32Red. Continue reading
This is the new Boro kit 2019/20, Middlesbrough FC’s new home shirt for the upcoming Championship season. Made by Hummel, the new MFC top was officially unveiled on 25 May, 2019 by singer James Arthur at Big Weekend.
The uniform, like Cambridge United’s Hummel kit, uses the Danish firm’s revolutionary ZeroH20 technology. Design wise, it appears to be a throwback to Boro’s shirts of the late 80’s, worn by Bruce Rioch’s side when they won promotion.
32Red remain principal sponsors of this new Middlesbrough 19/20 jersey, with Zoe’s Place appearing on the kids’ jersey. Boro finished 7th in the Championship in 2018/19, missing the playoffs by just a single point. Continue reading
This is the new Preston North End kit 2019/20, PNE’s new home strip for the upcoming EFL Championship season. Made by Nike, the new PNEFC 19/20 top was officially unveiled on 22 May, 2019.
The 19/20 season will be Preston’s fifth straight one in the second tier of English football. After finishing 7th in 2017/18, 18/19 was a bit of a let down for the fans at Deepdale as the club ended up a lowly 14th. They finished with a goal difference of exactly 0- scoring 67 and letting in as many.
The new home jersey retains the club’s white and navy colours and is paired with navy shorts and hooped socks. 32Red are principal shirt sponsors. Continue reading
Championship club Brentford have announced that Umbro will take over as the club’s kit partners beginning the 2019/20 season. The new Bees shirt deal with Umbro is for a period of four years (till 2023) and sees the Double Diamond brand take over from Adidas, who have been producing the club’s uniforms since 2013.
Brentford finished 11th in the Championship in 2018/19, seven points behind Derby, who took the final playoff spot. The Rams were one of three second tier clubs to be outfitted by Umbro in the 18/19 season- the others being Hull and Blackburn.
The 19/20 season will be Brentford’s last at Griffin Park, with the Bees set to move to their new Community Stadium in 2020. Continue reading
