Leeds United fans have been reacting to the news that the club will wear a special centenary kit for their game against Birmingham City on October 19.
This was confirmed by Phil Hay during his Q&A session with The Athletic.
Leeds’ two kit announcements this season haven’t gone down too well with fanbase thus far.
There were many complaints that the centenary home kit was uninspiring and bland, while the away kit was blasted due to the colour scheme of dark grey and pink.
We’ve previously seen other teams produce interesting new kits to commemorate special occasions and club anniversaries.
Fulham recently released a new special strip commemorating 140 years since their club was founded, and Man City brought out a retro-style shirt to celebrate their 125th birthday.
United supporters are hoping that their club take some inspiration from the Premier League champions by designing the new kit to resemble one of their previous classic strips.
Replica kit of revie years under bielsa ????

Be a classic shirt hopefully. Similar to what City did in the community shield

While fans were hoping for a classic strip, one fan was hoping that the club don’t revert back to the blue and white stripes they used in the early 1920s and 1930s due to the connections those colours have with their Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield Town and Sheffield Wednesday.
Hopefully not blue and white stripes ????

Excitement has overcome one member of the fanbase who has stated he doesn’t care what the new strip looks like as he would be buying it anyway.
I don’t care what it looks like im buying it!
