MOT View: Leeds kit reveal surely close after fan-spot outside Elland Road

Leeds United are making their fans wait at the moment. For news on Marcelo Bielsa, for news on new signings and for an official sighting of the new Adidas kit.

The hold-up was said to be the front-of-shirt sponsor and it’s still not been confirmed who is going to replace 32Red.

However, things are moving and it looks like a kit reveal is close, if not imminent.

The rumours on Twitter started when a Leeds fan who describes himself as a “filmmaker” posted the following tweet.

He followed up with a photo of a camera crew outside Elland Road – something that was posted by other Leeds fans.

A more reliable source, Leeds Live journalist Beren Cross, said that he’d also heard that the kit reveal was getting filmed at Elland Road. He confirmed the new kit reveal was “not far away’.

This isn’t exactly a major revelation. The Leeds players are back in training next week and many other Premier League clubs have already revealed their 20/21 kits.

But it is exciting. This is a big deal for Leeds fans – the first season back in the top-flight after 16 years out, coupled with a major new deal with Adidas.

The kits have been leaked and we’ve been told that they’re pretty accurate. MOT Leeds News columnist Paul Robinson has given them a big thumbs up.

However, there’s a big difference between leaked kits in amateur photographs and the official reveal with proper hi-res images and video.

It does sound like the kit reveal is close. And we’ve also found out through Phil Hay that a new Marcelo Bielsa contract should be signed and sealed by next Wednesday, too.

Add in a major player signing and we’ll be pretty happy.
