Badges & Logos

The league provided another new design of competition sleeve patch.

Oxford based internet web agency Domino Systems were to feature as shirt sponsor, but for just one season only.

Home Kit & Away Variation

Long
sleeves

New balance produced an unusual and unpopular design for Oxford United’s last season at their famous old Manor Ground.

The shirts were a metallic brass colour with tiny blue specs throughout, giving a rather dirty and muddy green appearance, particularly under floodlights. The concept of these shirts looked very similar to an ASICS design worn by Sunderland during 97-98.

Away Kit

Long
sleeves

The navy change strip design remained largely unchanged. The shirts now featured the new sponsor and competition arm patches, whilst the socks gained navy trim.

Not all change shirts were new, some were 1999 shirts re-hashed with a rectangular Domino patch crudely applied over the embossed Unipart logo. (See Right). This demonstrates how dire the clubs finances were at that time.

The Domino logo on these shirts was also in an incorrect ‘condensed’ version of the typeface.
