Other than transfers, the biggest storyline throughout the off-season is the release of the new kits for the new campaign. Clubs continue to innovate and push the boundaries when it comes to their strips in recent years, but it’s fair to say not every team gets it right every time.
Here are the best and worst football kits released so far for the new season.
The most impressive strip of the new season so far is York City’s chocolate and cream alternate strip, inspired by the club’s heritage through the 1930s.
Arsenal and Adidas are a match made in heaven when it comes to fashion, and the German manufacturers have knocked it out of the park once again with their home strip for 2022/23.
The Barcelona 2022/23 home kit has divided opinion online, but the new Spotify logo mixed with the gold detailing and dark blue sleeves make this one an instant hit in our books.
While the Ajax kit isn’t as eye-catching as their 2021/22 counterparts, it is still a classic rendition from Adidas with the red and white stripes.
Sometimes keeping it simple is the best thing you can do, and there isn’t a lot to complain about with Tottenham’s clean white kit for the new season.
PSG usually never miss when it comes to their fashion choices, but Nike is way off the mark with what they have come up with for the French champions’ home strip. The splash of red and white in the middle looks like a KFC bucket has been patched onto the centre of the kit.
Clubs must never mess with something traditional, and Juventus have not done themselves any favours with the zig-zag pattern on their black stripes for the 2022/23 home shirt.
Leicester City have gone with a gold crest and collared strip for the 2022/23 season. We’re just not sure how well that works.
Manchester City have gone for the Colin Bell-inspired round neck and central logo and crest for their 2022/23 home strip. It’s fair to say Puma have made a brave choice with this one.
