Oxford United Shirt 1998


Primary Colours and Away Variation

New home kits were introduced for the 1998-99 season, with New Balance as the kit supplier. The trend for generous sized shirts continued, with the new home shirts also featuring very generous fits and baggy sleeves.

The club crest was similar in design to the previous season, but now included the wording “OXFORD United FC”.

At the tail-end of the season the clubs dire financial position was given some hope with the arrival of new chairman Firoz Kassam.

As the season progressed, match shirts required replacing. The replacement shirts featured sewn block style numbers. These shirts featured alongside the older printed numbered shirts in the same matches.

Change Colours

The white change strip remained unchanged in its design, except that it now featured New Balance logos on all of the garments. (This was also the case for the goalkeeper kits).  To me, this suggests that the ‘own brand’ kit used over the previous two seasons were probably manufactured anomalously by New Balance.
