Sheffield United New Kit - 2008/09

Sheffield United have revealed details of their new home and away strip for next season.

Although no images of the new shirt have been released, the home shirt will be worn for the first time in Saturday’s game against Bristol City, and the away shirt will be revealed at half-time in the same game by United’s Under-18’s squad. The away shirt was chosen by the first team squad and will be black, and the home shirt was chosen by a fan, Ben Frost.

Ben is apparently a member of United fan forum, and various mock-ups of what the new kits could look like have been posted - along with rumours surrounding the supplier. United have had a long-standing deal with Le Coq Sportif as their kit supplier, but some fans have suggested that Umbro could have taken over the deal - which would undoubtedly lead to a Sunderland-type shirt in the club’s famous red and white stripes.

Forms offering supporters the chance to pre-order the kits will be placed on every seat for Saturday’s game. The away shirt will be available in the Blades Superstore from mid-June, with the home version available from the middle of July.
