You know what you're getting with a Bournemouth home kit, and Umbro have produced another striking red and black home strip for the Cherries.

The new design was revealed by the club in a special online video featuring Bournemouth and the surrounding area's coastline scenery.

AFCB is printed in gold on the rear neckline, while the lettering can also be found on the rear of the home kit's socks, which are predominantly black, as are the home shorts.

The Cherries revealed their 2018/19 away kit on June 3. It is a marked departure from the light blue jersey from the previous season, with the Cherries opting for a white jersey, dark blue shorts and socks complete with a flash of coral trim.

Made by Umbro, the shirt "brings a brilliant white engineered matt shine stripe fabric to give a clean crisp visual. "Delivering a lightweight shirt which can withstand the pressures of the modern game, whilst creating a wearable shirt for the fan."


Brighton launched their home and away kits on July 17, with both produced by Nike. There was no major shift in their home offering, with Nike producing a sky blue and white-striped shirt including the American Express logo which has donned their kits for several years.

Nike's red swoosh adorns the shirt, as well as the all-white shorts, while blue socks round off the look.

The away kit is slightly more unusual, with a solid green shirt including a subtle abstract pattern in different shades described as a "camo graphic", and a polo-like front collar.

Again white shorts accompany the shirt, although carrying a black Nike logo, and black socks complete the kit.


Burnley's home kit for 2018/19 carries a striking new sponsor logo, courtesy of betting company Laba360, as well as a nod to the V kit the club ran in the 1970s, and has since become famous among its fans in the form of a hexagonal design across the chest.

A solid blue sleeve with claret trim, is accentuated by a ribbed crew neck and cuff, for increased comfort, and stylised raglan sleeve for improved fit and motion longer.

The Puma shirt, which benefits from moisture wicking technology; keeping high-performance athletes cooler for longer, is complemented by predominantly white shorts and socks.

Cardiff City

Cardiff's new kit has been produced by Adidas, and includes the brand's famous three-stripe piping in white on each shoulder. The new kit is topped off with a Bluebird, the club's nickname, on the back of the home shirt as well as on the club's badge.

The grey away kit - described by the club as "a clear grey and silver strip with blue stripes" - features a classic Adidas pattern on the front, as well as the usual three-stripe piping from the collar in the same colour as the home kit.

The club's Solar Green strip, which served as its away colours for the 2017/18 season, will be registered as a third kit for the 2018/19 campaign.

Chelsea's new kit takes inspiration from the famous and much-loved jerseys of the 1980s and 90s.

Flashes of colour feature on the shirt, with "dazzling horizontal red and white lines vibrantly standing out against the famous Chelsea blue". The jersey is complemented by traditional blue shorts and white socks, which include a horizontal red and blue trim at the knee.

Two subtle inner features give a nod to Chelsea's heritage. High up on the back of the neckline of the shirt sits a small lion, while inside the jersey, the words 'Blue is the Colour' - the opening line from the Chelsea anthem - can be found.

As well as the men's team, both the Chelsea Academy and Ladies teams will wear the new kit throughout the 2018/19 season.

The away kit is all yellow with a blue trim around the collar, a return to the jersey made famous in the 1960s and 1970s.

The away kit - dubbed the 'Palace PUMA Sash' - features an iconic design that was voted one of the best ten kits of all time.

It celebrates the 40th anniversary of one of the most memorable seasons in the club's history when the "Team of the 80s" - the exciting young side managed by Terry Venables - won promotion to the First Division.

The Terriers' third kit - termed a second alternative kit by the club - is an interesting luminous yellow and navy design. The shirt will be accompanied by predominantly navy shorts and luminous yellow socks.

Leicester City

Leicester might have changed from Puma to Adidas, but there is little change with the kit as the new manufacturers stick with the classic blue design.

The most notable addition is the three stripes on the shoulders, while the new kit also features a V-neck collar and gold trim.

The Foxes' away kit takes the street to the stadium with 'cityscape' grey trim alongside the one-tone club crest, orange shoulder stripes and badge of sport.

The same colour tone continues onto the away shorts and socks, which are both predominantly grey with orange trim.

Liverpool have stuck with the retro feel of the current shirt for next season's home kit. However, the Champions League finalists and New Balance have tinkered slightly with the design, adding a polo collar and two buttons to give it what is described as a "lifestyle look"..

The "red pepper" shirt features linear jacquard stripes on the front - inspired by the landmark architecture of the redeveloped Main Stand.

The top is paired with white shorts and midnight navy socks, which were worn by City when they first won the league title in 1936/1937 and also during the 1998/99, which is considered by many to be the turning point in the modern history of the club.

City's dark blue away shirt - manufactured by Nike- features blue and luminous yellow pin stripes and is inspired by the 1998/99 number.

That was famously worn when City beat Gillingham in the Division Two play-off final at Wembley, a result that sparked the club's modern day revival.

Manchester United

The new United home jersey features a train track graphic at the base inspired by the club's original name, Newton Heath Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Football Club.

The club first played games against other railway companies at North Road until 1892, when they entered the English First Division.

United's new third kit for the 2018/19 season is inspired by the 50th anniversary of United's historic first European Cup win. The navy blue jersey takes its cue from the royal blue kit worn by Sir Matt Busby's men in their victory over Benfica at Wembley in May 1968.

It has been created from Parley Ocean Plastic in partnership with Parley for the Oceans to create awareness of the issue of plastic in our oceans.

Richard Arnold, Group Managing Director of Manchester United, said: "Adidas continues to demonstrate how forward thinking they are. We are all acutely aware of the threat of plastic to the environment and we are delighted to be able to raise further awareness with this recycled kit, which I am sure the fans will love."

Southampton's new Under Armour home kit marks a return to their traditional red-and-white striped home kit following a largely white shirt last season.

The Saints are again sponsored by Virgin Media, who also appear on their newly-announced away kit.

That shirt takes inspiration from the past, with the club producing a brand new yellow-and-blue strip, reminiscent of what was worn in Saints' 1976 FA Cup victory.

The striking yellow kit, which is blue across the sleeves and shoulders, is accompanied by blue shorts and blue socks.


It's all change for Tottenham this season as they start life at their new stadium.

But their 2018/19 home kit also remembers White Hart Lane with the coordinates of the centre circle at the club's former home on the inside of the collar.

The white home shirt is combined with navy blue shorts and blue and white socks.

Manufacturers Nike have added the tagline "Built to Rise" with the release of the kits, and the away strip is largely blue, with turquoise sleeves and shorts.

Watford's home kit takes their Hornets nickname to a new level - with black and gold stripes a far cry from their all-yellow number last season.

For the second year in succession, Adidas have produced the Vicarage Road side's kit, which includes a small hornet on the back of the neck to complete the look.

The club's away kit is green with lime trim - and fans who went to all 19 away games last season received a surprise shirt in the post, as well as a letter of thanks from Troy Deeney.
