Phil Hay says whether leaked Leeds Adidas kit is real for 2020/21 season

Leeds United will team up with Adidas from next season onwards with the German sportswear company manufacturing their kit.

Earlier this month, leaks website FootyHeadlines revealed what the 2020/21 Leeds away kit will look like and it’s fair to say that not a lot of fans were impressed by the design.

The Athletic journalist Phil Hay was asked whether or not the leaked kit was a fake but it seems that there is a lot of truth in the revealed design.

Hay says that the blue striped kit is close to the actual shirt that Leeds will wear on the road next season but the image doesn’t really show off how nice the kit actually is.

“I have. I don’t think it’s a million miles away from what they’re thinking about but I’m not sure the colours in the images did the actual design justice either,” said Hay via a live Q&A session on The Athletic’s website.

We have definitely seen better fan-made concept kits for next season than what the FootyHeadlines page has leaked.

However we are going to trust Hay when he says that the kit isn’t as bad as what the image shows. Maybe it’s just a guess at what the kit will look like based on the knowledge that the kit will be dark blue and light blue stripes.

One of the worst parts about the leaked kit is the collar. It looks horrible and not like something Adidas would manufacture for a team that is going to be one of their biggest money-makers next season if they win promotion to the Premier League.

Everyone is going to want the kit that Leeds wore in their first season back in the top-flight so this is a big deal for the club and for Adidas.
