Leeds United fans react to launch of away kit; hit or travesty?

The launch of any new kit is one of those times that supporters of a club get all giddy and start reaching for their wallets in drooling anticipation. Today is no different for Leeds United fans.

This morning, at 9:30, Leeds fans sat waiting for the club to launch next season’s away kit. The preceding days have seen Twitter awash with Leeds fans producing ‘mock-up’ kits and expressing their preference as to what kits they wished to see.

The preference, among many, was for a little number in black.

What they got was this.

It is just what many had been wanting, a little black number. Whereas the home kit is white with gold trim, this away kit is a much more simplistic, some might say less garish black-and-silver combination.

Obviously it didn’t take Leeds United fans long to air their opinions on the new kit, and Twitter was quickly flooded with Whites fans saying what they thought.

Leeds United fans comment on release of new kit

Many fans are very accepting of the new kit, and a return to black that hasn’t been seen since the days of sponsorship by Enterprise Insurance.

Not all fans are taken by it; to be honest some are not taken at all by the choice of black as the main colour.

As is usual with Leeds fans, there’s what Nicholas Parsons would say was ‘a difference of opinion here’. Whilst many are open and accepting of the new shirt in black, an equally vociferous number of Leeds United fans seemingly see it as something of a travesty.
