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.

Made by Kappa, the new Villa third shirt was officially unveiled earlier this week, and will make its on-field debut next month when the Midlands outfit take on reigning league champions Manchester City.

This is the new Betis home kit 2019/20, Real Betis’ new primary uniform for the upcoming La Liga season. Made by Kappa, the new Betis 19/20 kit was officially unveiled on 22 May, 2019.
Betis finished 10th in La Liga in 2018/19 and their manager Quique Setien achieved the rare feat of beating both Real Madrid and Barcelona away in the league in the same season. He also managed a Europa league win over Milan at the San Siro. However he was sacked following their final day win over Zinedine Zidane’s side at the Bernabeu.
The new home shirt, like Milan’s recently released one, is also a narrow striped design. Continue reading
These are the new Angers kits 19/20, Angers SCO’s new home and away uniforms for the upcoming Ligue 1 season. The new Angers SCO 2019/20 shirts, made by Italian manufacturer Kappa, were officially unveiled on 2 May, 2019, just weeks after the two partners had announced a contract extension till 2023.
These are also the 100th anniversary kits for Angers (100 ans below the club crest).
