Whilst the usual time for club’s to announce a new kit is towards the end of the season of over the summer, Leeds United made the strange decision to announce their new third kit yesterday ahead of their trip to West Brom, and so far the fans have been gushing over the design.

The new design has The Whites playing in a bright yellow shirt that has vertical stripes made up of the words ‘Marching on Together’ a feature that has gone down extremely well with the majority of the fans. To complete the kit, the club has gone for blue shorts and yellow socks, although the socks have got blue and white hoops at the top around the knee, and the fans can’t wait to get their hands on the whole lot.
The new design will be worn for the first time on Saturday in the later Championship kick-off time of 17:30. The game will also be live on Sky Sports meaning the whole world can tune in to see Marcelo Bielsa’s boys as they rock their new kit and try and take the game to an out-of-sorts West Brom. A win will see the Elland Road faithful keep their place at the top of the table and to do it in their new strip is exactly what The Whites want.
