Southampton fans react as new home shirt is leaked before announcement

Southampton announced via their official Twitter account last Thursday that their new kit would be revealed on June 16, but images of the home shirt have already leaked and been shown on sale in Australia, and Saints fans have been quick to react to that and the design ahead of the big club announcement on Saturday.

In what has seemed to be a big mix-up between the south coast outfit and kit manufacturer Under Armour, the red-and-white striped strip has already been sold in Brisbane, as well as in Asia.

The design is certainly very different to the 2017/18 effort, with the narrow stripes replacing the large white column with red sides that made up the one that was worn as Mark Hughes’ men narrowly avoided relegation to the Championship.

Southampton supporters, who have delivered their verdict on the club’s potential double transfer swoop, were quick to have their say on the appearance of the home shirt and the fact that is already on sale in other countries days before its official release via social media, and while one described the kit as an “absolute horror show”, another described the whole situation as “embarrassing”.

Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
