This is the new Watford home kit 2020/21, Watford’s new home strip for the upcoming Championship season. Made by Kelme, the new kit was officially unveiled on 13 August, 2020 by the Hornets. This is Watford’s first uniform to be made by new technical partners Kelme after choosing to part ways with Adidas, and the Spanish firm have gone for a rather unique look for the Vicarage Road outfit.
The new jersey, at first glance, feels like a lot like a Kaizer Chiefs jersey from South Africa, with the unique front design. The club also unveiled a new goalkeeper jersey that Ben Foster will wear under the sticks in 20/21.
