Football Kits 2009/10: Who makes what

Back in August 2008, Some People Are On The Pitch wrote one of its most popular articles ever. It wasn't a lengthy thesis on the things we hate most about Cristiano Ronaldo, nor was it an online poll asking you for your happiest memories involving Milton Keynes Dons. Somewhat surprisingly, it was an article listing the kit manufacturers of each of the 92 Premier and Football League teams for 2008/09. I know... we we were surprised too.

We can only think that our article was regarded as the perfect reference guide for those of you interested in who makes what where football kits are concerned. That being the case, we thought we'd set up a new page for the 2009/10 season - especially given the fact that many new kits are already being launched for the next campaign.

So here goes with our list of confirmed kit manufacturers for the 2009/10 season. We'll be updating the page whenever we hear of any new strips being launched so don't forget to check back for all the latest news throughout the summer here in the UK.

Boro will be with Addidas next season.

Chris O said...

Really Phil? Wow, I'd quite like to see that.

Mind you, I said the same when I heard Plymouth were switching to Adidas and all they've ended up with is one of their sligtly uninspiring template kits...

Redduffman said...

Adidas recently announced a 97% profit drop. Perhaps they've had to cut the design budget back.

Chris O said...

Maybe, Duffman. That said, I think Adidas always have a new 'template kit' to roll out every season like a lot of other manufacturers like Umbro and Puma.

tiger said...

Hull City are still with Umbro next season. Confirmed by the release of the new trainig range today.

Chris O said...

Thanks a lot for tipping us off about that, Tiger. We've updated our list accordingly! :)
