Leeds United Confirm Their Kit For Wembley Showdown With Southampton
Monday, 20th May 2024 14:30

Saints have not yet announced what kit they will wear for the big game at Wembley on Sunday, but Leeds united have already told their supporters what they will be wearing, read on for more details.

Local Leeds media outlet have confirmed that Leeds will be in their traditional white home kit for the Championship play off final at Wembley on Sunday.

They claim that the EFL bases its play-off final kit decisions on the teams’ finishing positions in the table. As United finished third to Southampton’s fourth, they are seen as the home side and will be in all-white,

However they are less sure what Saints will be wearing, they are correct when they say that Saints changed to their Black kit for the visit to Elland Road earlier this month and indeed when the Yorkshire side visited St Mary's they too changed from their white home kit.

However that does not mean that this will happen for the game at Wembley, clubs these days quite often wear an away strip when there is no need to do so, Saints for example wore their white kit at Hull City when the home side wore Amber & Black with no red at all in their colours.

Part of it is based on selling away kits to fans and to do so they need to be seen regularly and part of it is if shorts or socks may clash.

So Saints may wish to retain the home shirt & shorts worn this season, neither would clash with Leeds all white, for Wembley, but the clash could be the socks.

We of course have played in white socks and this would clash with Leeds's own socks, however it would be fairly easy to change to either wearing the away black socks or indeed wearing red socks., both have been used as home colour socks before.

Ideally for Saints they would display their home kit at Wembley, after all a sea of red & white is better if you can sing come on you Red's.

Surely we should play in our normal home kit and keep our Saints tradition and distinctiveness.

It will be the socks that clash with Leeds. The Hull away game was mentioned as to why we played in white but although the tops were different (Yellow vs Red) the shorts were both black. My expectation is that we will go with the all black kit. At then end of the day I don’t mind as long as we win. After all we were in our changed yellow kit for 1976!

As I said we can play in our home shirts and socks and just change to either black or red socks

Why on earth would Saint play in anything other than their current home kit together with a change of socks ?

Playing in Black when 35 thousand fans are predominantly dressed in red singing “ come on you reds” would be totally stupid.

Has to be home kit with changed socks

I think we should wear the same as we did when we beat them two weeks ago..still fresh in the memory and maybe a small psychological edge as it was so recent.

Saints in black then. No problem with that myself.

Should be Red and White Stripes all the way up Wembley Way.
(Only get to say that every couple of years, nice ring to it, unlike JWW)
Seriously, I will blame the stupid and unnecessary change if we don't.
We always used to wear red socks with the red and white stripes anyway, we should not be conceding anything, particularly tradition heritage and consistency along with our united voices.

Isn't there some bizarre rule that the "home" team choose what to wear but the "away" team cannot wear their home kit even if there is no clash.
