Leeds United will unveil a one-off kit to celebrate the club’s centenary anniversary in October, according to The Athletic’s Phil Hay.
Our new Kappa home kit was inspired with subtle touches to celebrate 100 years of the club, with a gold crest and platinum trim embroidered onto a white strip for outfield players and a blue and yellow kit for goalkeepers, keeping with our club colours.
The away kit failed to earn the same widespread admiration of the Elland Road faithful, though, as orders for our new home kit saw new record figures achieved. Whereas, the pink and grey away strip worn against Bristol City in the Championship curtain-raiser left many disappointed.
It remains to be seen what design template and colour scheme Kappa opt for when it comes to the one-off centenary kit, which will be worn in the home game against Birmingham City on October 19.
Fans reacting on social media to Hay’s confirmation of the Whites’ plans to issue a one-off strip have been sharing their joy in the announcement, although some voiced concerns over what colours Kappa will use.
Others, meanwhile, have suggested what type of design they would like the Italian sportswear brand to use, with one United supporter suggesting a similar design to the one Kappa used for Ligue 1 side Angers’ centenary anniversary strip.
