Leeds have unveiled their new home strip for the 2020/21 Premier League season, their first spell in the top flight of English football for 16 years.
To usher them into a new era in their history, the Whites have struck a deal with adidas to be their official shirt manufacturer, taking over from Kappa, who saw their deal expire at the conclusion of the previous campaign.
Under the guidance of Marcelo Bielsa, Leeds stormed to promotion from the Championship, finishing top of the division to banish their playoff heartache from the previous campaign.
Their new home strip will feature the classic all-white design that has become synonymous with the west Yorkshire club, although adidas’ three stripes will feature across the shoulders in royal blue. So too will the new shirt sponsor, as SBOTOP agreed a multi-year partnership with the Elland Road outfit earlier in the year.
A short statement from adidas read: “A new journey begins. Made from moisture-absorbing fabric to keep you cool when Bielsa Ball is in full flow, an embroidered crest and crew neck-collar look solid on show.
“Three stripes line the shoulders in royal blue, whilst AEROREADY technology helps the players reach their peak and the kit is complete with traditional white shorts and socks.”
Elland Road will host Premier League football for the best part of a decade and a half, having not tasted the top flight since finishing 19th at the end of the 2003/04 season. Since then, the club have fallen as far down as League One, but the arrival of Bielsa has breathed new life into a side who finished ten points clear of nearest challengers West Brom last term.
