Leeds United officially unveiled their new home kit this year at the various official stores around Leeds.
The flagship store at Elland Road was officially opened by Andrea Radrizzani. After going through some renovations, it looks even better than it did before insside, and some of the players modeled the new kit outside.

They also modeled the new kit inside the store as well, with Ronaldo Vieira, Luke Ayling, Chelsea loanee Jamal Blackman, Kemar Roofe, and Gjanni Alioski all showing off the new threads inside the store.

This year’s kit release wasn’t as exciting as last year’s kit release, due to the fact that the kit design was leaked online earlier this week. Even the kit numbers have been already been released.
Also, last year’s kit release party featured a new signing, as Vurnon Anita was revealed to the public at the event. Many fans were expecting one of Barry Douglas or Matej Vydra to be unveiled wearing the new kit at Elland Road, but that didn’t appear to be in the cards.
As for the kit itself, after one season with gold lettering, sanity appears to have returned to Leeds United, as the lettering is once again in blue. The old badge is still on the new kits, with a planned “new badge” set to be introduced next season. The look is clean and uncluttered, something that past kits have lacked. It’s about what most Leeds fans would have liked to see on the new home kit, as Leeds is once again in all-white with blue and yellow being the only other “traditional” colours to be used on a Leeds kit.
The only real “objection” people seem to have is with the socks, with a block “LEEDS” written on it, but if the biggest problem people have with a kit has to do with the writing on the socks, you’ve got a pretty decent kit all around.
So do you like the new kit? Plan on stopping by before the first home game to buy one? Let us know in the comments.
