Badges & Logos

The Football League numbers and lettering have had a refresh, with a stencil effect applied to the EFL font.

The sleeve patches have also been given an update with a new design plus a simplified shape. The EFL’s ‘Not Today or Any Day’ campaign logo features below the League 1 sleeve patch, reinforcing the message that discrimination in any form will not be tolerated across the League.

The Tourism Authority of Thailand are new the shirt sponsors, 'Amazing Thailand' will feature for the next three years.

IFX are the new back-of-shorts sponsors, featuring from match 10 onwards.

Home Kit and Away Variations

No
long
sleeves

Once again, Puma provided Oxford United with a unique crew-neck shirt, featuring subtle patterning within the fabric (it is illustrated, but you'll need to zoom to see).

However, just like previous seasons, the Puma kit follows a very similar template to others seen amongst other EFL clubs. The shirt template has an unusual shoulder panel, which is wider at the back than the front.

The back of the socks have the clubs Minoan Ox on the calf.

The EFL’s ‘Not Today or Any Day’ campaign logo did not feature on the sleeves for the first 3 fixtures.

Away Kit

No
long
sleeves

The "Headington United inspired" away kit is very similar to the one-off strip worn to celebrate the clubs 125th Anniversary in 2018.

However, choosing orange as the away colours seems bizarre, considering Oxford cannot wear yellow or orange against Blackpool, Burton, Hull and Shrewsbury. It's no wonder the club has introduced a third kit!

I guess I shouldn't be too harsh, as the club have little income whilst matches are played behind closed doors, so a commercially successful away kit will bring in much-needed revenue.

The black socks also feature the Minoan Ox.

Third Kit & Variations

The club has opted for a rather bland all-white third strip. There is a small piece of interesting detailing, with Puma's flux pattern on a chest panel.

Personally, I thought the club missed a trick. I was expecting a more colourful white strip with flashes of pink and the sponsor's logo appearing in its bright pink/yellow format. Oh well, there is always next year!

Goalkeeper Kits

Puma's goalkeeper kits are straight off-the-shelf and feature an eye-catching hexagonal design on the front panel. This template seems to be the standard option for all the professional clubs wearing Puma.

Unusually, the keeper shirts are short-sleeved, with Puma producing optional base layers in the same colour.

Remembrance Weekend / FA Cup Shirts

Once again, the remembrance weekend coincided with the FA Cup. The standard poppy motif featured on the player's chest.

The shirts again featured a single Emirates FA Cup competition patch on the right sleeve. This provided teams with the opportunity to secure additional sponsorship on the left sleeve, but without a crowd or TV coverage, no sponsor was found.

The FA Cup had a rebrand for 2020, resulting in a large rectangle sleeve patch.

Papa John's Trophy

Oxford once again enjoyed a prolonged run in the EFL Trophy.

The semi-final game against Tranmere was broadcast live on Sky Sports. The match shirts featured Papa John's competition patches.

The left sleeve saw additional sponsorship from Hertfordshire based EB Charging.
