Badges & Logos

This was to be the last season that Buildbase would feature on the Oxford United shirts. Car dealership Hartwell became the back-of-shirt sponsors, whilst JackFM moved down to the rear shorts.

Home Kit & Away Variation

No
long
sleeves

Nike became Oxford’s kit supplier, which initially proved a popular choice for supporters.

There was a limited choice of (yellow) kit designs that the club could choose from Nike’s rather uninspiring catalogue. Whilst premier league clubs enjoyed ‘custom’ kit designs, lower league clubs could only choose from the off-the-shelf designs.

Unusually, there was not an all-yellow away variation.

For the first time, Oxford United only wore short-sleeved shirts, so players began to wear thermal base layers in the colder months. Interestingly, fans could buy long sleeved shirts.

Away Kit & Variations

No
long
sleeves

A very plain round neck shirt was chosen for the away colours, indeed it could be said this design was little more than a t-shirt.

The white shorts had black trim around the back edge of each leg.

For the first half of the season, the white socks had a black top. However, these were replaced with plain white socks for the second half of the season.

Buildbase sister company ‘Plumbase’ name was used on the change shirts.

Goalkeeper Kits

Wembley Shirt

Having narrowly missed out on reaching the play-offs the year before, Oxford United went one better, reaching the Play-Off Final at the new Wembley Stadium.

Oxford United beat York City 3-1 to regain their place back in the football league.

In keeping with Wembley tradition, Oxford United had specially embroidered shirts.
