Leeds United know where they belong. After dropping out the Premier League last season, it’s been a summer of change, all with the aims of bouncing straight back to the topflight of English football.

Inspired By History
While Leeds United’s away strip has varied over the years, adidas has put the club’s DNA centre stage this campaign.
adidas has continued the peacock feathering print across the shirt that we saw on the home design, this time making it stand out against the Team Navy Blue colourway, as well as shifting it at an angle.
The origins of this print come the iconic Old Peacock pub that’s sat right next to the infamous cauldron of Elland Road. A place for pre-match build and post-match celebrations, the pub’s significance to matchdays has led to one of the club’s nicknames – The Peacocks.
Digging into the tech, the brand has built the kits from 100% recycled polyester fabric for a super-smooth feel against the skin.
And for when the game intensifies in the final minutes, sweat-wicking AEROREADY technology delivers cool comfort whether you’re on or off the pitch.
The shirt features a crew neckline and short sleeves – both with ribbed detailing on the trims for a soft touch. The shorts have an elasticated waistband and drawcord tie to secure the fit, while the knee-length socks complete the kit.
Signed Off in Style
To complement the bold pattern, adidas has opted for a Mint finish. The 3-Stripes run down the shoulders and the Performance logo and Leeds United crest are embroidered to the chest.
Not stopping there, an early ‘80s peacock badge is printed to the nape.
