New kit launches are always subject to the scrutiny of home and opposing fans, but with the introduction of social media, the platform for banter is incredibly strong. So when Huddersfield introduced their new home strip for the 2019/20 season, it has caused a real stir.

New sponsors, Paddy Power, made light of the fact that they had joined allegiance with the West Yorkshire club on Twitter two days ago, releasing the following clip…

A pretty scathing but comedic look at the new partnership, but no one could have imagined that the new strip would be so outlandish, until their official unveiling today, oh boy has it caused a reaction on Twitter.

So, either the club and the sponsors are going for the biggest wind up in history or this is actually the kit that Huddersfield Town will play in at The John Smiths Stadium next season. I think the feelings are pretty much mutual across the board on this one.

Town were relegated from the Premier League last season following a two year spell in the top flight, so I ask you this… is this new kit a tactical move by the club? Designed to lift the spirits of the supporters through comedy ahead of their new campaign in the Championship, or is this a genuine attempt at a new style amongst football jerseys going forward?

Either way, it has caused waves on social media, bringing many clubs supporters together in perfect, banter harmony.
