Leeds: Phil Hay reveals kit problems ahead of new season

Leeds: Phil Hay reveals kit problems ahead of new season -Leeds United News

Leeds United have been affected by an issue surrounding the arrival of their new kit this summer, reliable journalist Phil Hay has reported.

The Lowdown: New season edging closer

The Whites are now less than two weeks away from beginning their 2022/23 Premier League season, following a productive summer in the transfer market.

Leeds open their top-flight campaign at home to Wolves on August 6 as Jesse Marsch’s side look to steer well clear of relegation this time around.

Off the pitch at Elland Road, however, a separate issue is causing potential problems for the Whites’ behind-the-scenes staff.

The Latest: Hay reveals kit issue

Taking to Twitter in sharing a report for The Athletic, Hay explained how Leeds’ new Adidas kit for 2022/23 is set to arrive late, due to issues in the Far East, among other factors.

The reporter outlined:

“Leeds United are one of numerous clubs affected by the late arrival of new kit this summer. Covid shutdowns in the Far East, manufacturers prioritising other products, distribution pressures.”

The Verdict: Potential financial blow

The longer this problem goes on, the more that Leeds are missing out in a financial sense, with plenty of supporters around the world no doubt keen to purchase the new strip.

It means that none of that money is coming in currently and the new season is almost upon us, so some behind the scenes at the club will no doubt be frustrated. Indeed, Hay mentioned in his report that the delay is likely to cost the Whites ‘a sizeable sum of money’.

Kurzawa at Leeds?

Yes, just what we need!

Yes, just what we need!

No, look elsewhere!

No, look elsewhere!

It is also arguably an unwanted distraction for the team as they don a temporary kit for the time being, and the hope is that it doesn’t affect their focus ahead of the Wolves match… not that it should.
