It is that time of the year again when we rank the best away kits of the 2022/23 season. Football strips have become an integral part of the culture and fandom of the modern game, and kit manufacturers have upped their game this season with some out-of-the-box designs while also sticking to the traditions and history of the clubs.
Away kits usually allow designers more freedom to express their artistic qualities and veer away from the traditional club colours. The 2022/23 season has given us some of the most iconic jerseys and best-designed football kits in recent memory, and here are our top 10 away kits of this season.

The Liverpool away kit may not be for everyone, but we love it. It’s a bold step to go for a rainbow-style graphic with a dizzying pattern, but the ambition and bravery must be applauded. This strip can double up as a fashion piece and a Liverpool away kit, perfect for the pitch and the dance floor on a night out.
Real Madrid always go funky with their away kits with Adidas, and the 2022/23 lavender kit is amongst the contenders for the best away strip of the season. The purple colourway fits perfectly with the graffiti-style graphic on the shirt, along with the embroidered club badge and Adidas logo.
You can never go wrong with a white and gold kit. The new Bayern Munich away kit for the 2022/23 season is simplicity at its finest, with the gold stripes on a white background. In addition, the entire jersey is made from 100% recycled materials.
Puma haven’t been putting out the best football kits recently, but the 2022/23 RC Lens away kit is a certified hit. The traditional green and black away colours are accentuated by the thick stripes, making it one of the cleanest away jerseys for the new season.
Just like the home strip, the 2022/23 Barcelona away kit takes inspiration from the 1992 Olympics hosted in Barcelona. The golden design pays homage to the 30th anniversary of those games, and the gold detailing and graphics make for one of the most stylish kits of the new season.
The Celtic away jersey for 2022/23 is one of the best-designed football kits of the year. The 2022/23 kit is inspired by the famous away strip from 1992 with the dark green and white pinstripes on a black background. The shield setting of the crest is another nod to the club’s gloried past.
At this point, any top ten list of football kits without Venezia is incomplete. The full-time fashion brand part-time football club have knocked it out of the park with their away strip for the 2022/23 season. The white background with the coloured hoops is an instant classic already.
Rather than have a plain black away kit, Arsenal and Adidas have taken it one step further with this gorgeous away strip for the 2022/23 season. The bronze detailing on the sponsor is the perfect blend to the black background, and the patterns on the main body pay homage to the Arsenal lettering outside the Emirates Stadium. Also, the Arsenal badge is replaced by the Cannon, which should be made permanent on all Arsenal kits in the future.
Manchester United will be losing many games this season under Erik Ten Hag. But if it’s any consolation, they will be in this spectacular kit. This away strip pays homage to their designs from the 1980s, and the red-black-red stripes on the shoulders are just magnificent.
The best away kit of the 2022/23 season has to be York City’s chocolate and cream alternate strip, inspired by the club’s heritage through the 1930s.
