    Sorry for bumping this back up. Does anyone know when to expect the 2nd release of the retro kit? Assuming it’ll be after the actual 24/25 shirts have launched

    They'll probably just announce it the day before it goes on sale

    We always seem to be one of the last clubs to announce kits, other teams do it early to get money in. There's literally no benefit to waiting, other than perhaps the idea of building suspense. Which to me is stupid because you can build suspense lat any point.

    My reply was about the retro shirt but I completely agree with you about the new kit ,
    why don't we get it out earlier ? Surely we can do that now as Acun owns Kappa Turkey
    and we don't have to wait for Umbro to get round to us near the bottom of their list

    It’s always the first week of July for us to release a kit when other clubs do it in late May or throughout June. There’s no benefit for waiting so long. The Matchwinner shirt proves people will buy shirts this early.

    It's a relatively recent thing too. I remember one season when I was a kid we played the last game of a season in the new kit for the following season. In recent years we've done the opposite - worn the old kit in a pre-season friendly because the new one wasn't ready yet. Strange that this process has seemingly become so much less efficient.

    Yeah Liverpool always play their last Premier League game of the season in next season’s kit. A few clubs do. It’s not super common but I just feel clubs release their kits much earlier than us and I don’t know why the club waits so long.

    Does it make any difference though? People will buy the kits whenever it's released- it's not really a competitive market, City fans won't buy another team's shirt just because ours isn't yet released.

    of course it makes a difference, especially in a tournament year
    some people might purchase england kits with the hype, and deciding they cant budget for a city kit too

    theres a reason many clubs show their new kit at the end of the season though

    So they could afford it if it's released earlier? Not really making sense there.
    If the budget is so tight it's probably not a good financial decision to buy a replica shirt.

    Could get City home and away for the same price

    Long time since kits lasted a few seasons. I remember this style kit seemed to last for ages Screenshot_20240613-211754~2.png

    That was the the last full season at Boothferry Park wasn't it? Then we kept it for the half Boothferry, half KC season and the Div 3 promotion season. Can't see us ever wearing the same home shirt in three different seasons ever again.

    Do we think it’ll be stripes again this season or full amber?

    I prefer plain amber personally but think jumping between the 2 is a good idea

    If we hadn’t played in stripes originally we would not have our nickname. I would have stripes all the time , personally.

    If I was going to have Amber, I would prefer her to be attractive sooner than plain.

    I'm on about what I prefer ( not that I'd buy nowadays ) and plain amber is my preference but I ain't bothered either way
