Adidas To Use Same Kit Design For Up To 50 Teams All Over Again
Adidas has released kit designs for 2019/2020 - and despite being heavily criticised for using the same kit for over 50 sponsored sides this season - its design team is back with another template, which will be duplicated across the world.
The Tiro 19 template will roll-out next year and could see major clubs such as Manchester United, Real Madrid and Juventus all sport the same design.
This season, at least 50 top-level Adidas kitted sides have worn the Adidas Condivo; a template that was rolled-out across club and international teams.
It received a bad reception, with many fans claiming the mega German sportswear brand has been lazy with its design offerings.
Teams such as Leicester City, Feyenoord and Benfica will all sport a 'new' kit next year which has been based on Bayern, United and Juventus third kits for this season.
At full-kit price that leaves you short of change from £100, fans have every right to feel conned by Adidas' newest official teamwear offerings.
One keen-eyed supporter took to Twitter to express their
disappointment in the Three Stripe brand.

Another fan longed for an Adidas jersey of old.
And then - of course - there's others, which brings us into
the realms football fashion nostalgia.
