By this time of year, we'd normally be in the full flow of summer. But everything in 2020 has been pushed back several months by the coronavirus crisis, which means it is only now, as the 2019/20 campaign finally nears its end, that fans are beginning to cast their eye to new kits for next season.

Here's a rundown of every confirmed and leaked Premier League kit for 2020/21 so far, as well as a handful of others from Europe's biggest clubs.
Home: Arsenal's 2020/21 home kit by adidas is directly inspired by the club's 'Art Deco' era of the 1930s and 1940s and by the tile flooring in Highbury's iconic marble hall. Even the deeper shade of red incorporated throughout the design is synonymous with Gunners history. You can buy the home kit from just £60 on Arsenal Direct.
Away: The 2020/21 Arsenal away kit draws inspiration from the iconic marble halls at the club's former home at Highbury. The club wants to 'unite generations' by celebrating the past with a modern shirt that also points to the future.
Third: The blue and peach colour combination of Arsenal’s new third shirt is intended to replicate the lights and atmosphere at the Emirates Stadium during a night game. The unique shirt pattern was created from a custom set of tie dye prints.
Home: Aston Villa secured their Premier League status for 2020/21 on the final day of the season and will begin the new campaign with Cazoo as a new primary sponsor. The women's team will also be wearing it in the top flight WSL for the first time following promotion.
Away: Both the home and away shirts Villa will be wearing in 2020/21 feature subtle pinstripe designs. The stripes are claret against the black jersey, with the rest of the trim and detail predominantly blue.
Third: Villa pay tribute to the city of Birmingham with their new Kappa third shirt. The repeated camouflage-style pattern is intended to represent the different districts that make the country’s ‘Second City’. It is finished with navy blue and lime trim.
Home: They won't be a Premier League team next season, but Bournemouth are already wearing their 2020/21 home kit following its launch – and it'll be available to buy at the official team shop.
Away: Bournemouth's new away kit for next season is inspired by the sea and the town's location on England's south coast. The graphic incorporated into the blue and turquoise design pays tribute to Bournemouth Pier.
Home: Brighton are moving away from traditional blue and white stripes for the 2020/21 season and have adopted a white pinstriped look that pays homage to the club's 1983 shirt, which was worn in the FA Cup at Wembley. It's available on the club's store here.
Away: Brighton's yellow away jersey is also a throwback to the 1980s glory days. The Seagulls were wearing a kit similar to this one for the 1983 FA Cup semi-final against Sheffield Wednesday, which booked their date in the final at Wembley.
Home: Burnley have launched a new home kit for 2020/21 that commemorates their league title winning side of 1920/21. The design is influenced by the shirt the Clarets wore 100 years ago and the blue is a notable change from usual as it sits lower down the sleeves.
Away: Burnley’s black away kit pays tribute to the old club crest that was replaced in 2009 when the Clarets were first promoted to the Premier League. The former badge forms the graphic pattern set behind the current emblem.
Home: Chelsea say the herringbone-knit pattern featured on their 2020/21 shirt is inspired by fine London tailoring. It features dark blue trim rather than typical white trim, and is the first Chelsea jersey to feature mobile network Three as the primary sponsor. It's available from 9 July on Nike's website.
Away: Chelsea's new away kit comes in a lighter shade of blue, featuring dark blue trim, and continues the tailoring theme that has been adopted for the 2020/21 campaign. But the club also say it has an 'injection of millennial swagger' – and again, it's available on Nike's website.
Third: Chelsea have gone for stripes with their new 2020/21 third shirt, which is said to be inspired by the 1990s Nike Ultramarine Air Max 180 trainers, as well as classic kits from the past. That may be so, but obvious comparisons have been made with Crystal Palace.
Home, Away & Third: Crystal palace have followed the same design for all three of their new kits for 2020/21, with a traditional blue and red home kit supported by a white away strip and matching black third jersey. A single shared design for all three kits is reminiscent of the 2012/13 promotions season.
Home: Everton have both a new kit supplier and primary sponsor for 2020/21 in cult brand Hummel and second hand car seller Cazoo respectively. The shirt even pays tribute to the iconic Z-cars anthem, with an image of the song's soundbar diagonally embossed across it.
Away: Amber is the throwback colour used for Hummel's first Everton away design. It is directly inspired by the away jerseys worn by Toffees sides of the 1960s and 1970s and this year marks the 50th anniversary of Everton's 1969/70 title win.
Third: Everton's new home and away shirts were the fastest selling home and away shirts in the club's history and they will have similarly high hopes for the new green third kit. The shade is called 'seafoam' and is complemented by deep charcoal trim and detail.
Home: The home shirt Fulham will be wearing on their return to the top flight bears a resemblance to the jersey used during the 2009/10 run to the Europa League final, during which the Cottagers beat the likes of Shakhtar Donetsk, Wolfsburg and Juventus.
Away: Away from home, Fulham will wear an entirely yellow strip for the first time since 2008/09, an historic campaign which saw them finish as high as seventh in the Premier League table. It features a faded white hexagon graphic across the shoulders.
Home: Leeds have marked their return to the Premier League next season after 16 years out of the top flight by announcing a lucrative new kit deal with adidas. The world famous German brand has replaced Kappa as the club's kit supplier of five years.
Away: Leeds’ new away shirt evokes memories of the mid-1990s, with inspiration coming from the jersey worn by the likes of Tony Yeboah, Gary McAllister and Gary Speed between 1994 and 1996. Yeboah scored a famous hat-trick in Monaco wearing the original.
Home: Leicester's new 2020/21 home shirt has a distinct 1990s throwback feel to it, reminiscent of the some of the earliest jerseys the Foxes wore in the Premier League. In league games, 'Thailand Smiles With You' will adorn the front, supporting Thai tourism in the COVID-19 recovery. All variants of the kit are available on the club's shop here.
Away & Third: Leicester simultaneously launched their new white away kit and maroon third kit. The white jersey features the usual King Power branding on the front, but the maroon features the club’s new ‘Thailand Smiles With You’ initiative instead.
Home: The new Liverpool home shirt, the first made by Nike following the switch from New Balance, takes things back to the 1990s. The green trim on the V-neck and sleeve cuffs is similar to that which featured on a home kit worn from 1993 to 1995 – and it's available to pre-order on the club's store here.
Away: The away kit Liverpool will be wearing for 2020/21 is teal with black trim. The striking swirling graphic has been been inspired by the iconic Shankly Gates at Anfield, while the textured print design is a nod to the flyposters of the city's musical heritage.
Third: Liverpool's black and anthracite checkerboard third shirt, which is complemented by crimson trim on the V-neck and side panels, is inspired by European nights at Anfield and the chequered flags and banners that adorn the Kop for each game.
Home: A mosaic design makes up the new 2020/21 Manchester City home shirt, with mosaics a distinct part of the modern Manchester art scene. City have had blue home shorts in the past, but they will stay white next season and be worn with traditional sky blue socks.
Away: City's away kit for 2020/21 is all about that design graphic, which is a nod to the buildings and architecture of the Castlefield area of Manchester. The club crest has been re-imagined in copper gold.
Third: City’s 2020/21 third kit, which features a bespoke paisley pattern and is inspired by Manchester’s cultural heritage of music and fashion, a nod to the ‘Mods’ of the 1960s and 1990s ‘Britpop’. Behind the all-over paisley, the jersey is ‘whisper white’ and is worn with navy blue shorts.
Home: Manchester United's new home shirt is not a dissimilar look to the club's 2016/17 blue away strip. The patterning breaks up the base colour for a much more bold and interesting design than simply plain red. You can – and should – buy it now on the club's store.
Away: United's new patterned away shirt for 2020/21 comes in an earthy shade of dark green. The club used transport as a theme for the launch, evoking the feeling of fans travelling to away games with friends, which obviously hasn't been possible because of the pandemic crisi.
Third: United wanted to completely re-imagine the classic striped look, while also drawing inspiration from white away strips with subtle or minimal black stripes worn in the 1970s and 1980s. That has come together to create this ‘disruptive’ design.
Home: Newcastle have moved away from the very thick stripe used in the 2019/20 design, with the 2020/21 Magpies shirt to feature much thinner black and white stripes. There isn't much flair to the design, although it is an unmistakably classic look – and one which you can get now on the club's store.
Away: Newcastle will be using yellow as an away colour for the first time since 2013/14, featuring a patterned design and dark blue stripe across the top of the shoulders. The shade of yellow itself is described as ‘fizzy’, while the shirt features a button neck.
Third: Newcastle's third shirt comes int 'violet prism' with 'fizzy yellow' branding. The design draws inspiration from the Tyne Bridge, with the graphic pattern a nod to the steelwork of the iconic structure that spans the city’s famous river.
Home: This is the primary kit Sheffield United will be wearing in 2020/21 as they look to consolidate on an impressive first season back in the Premier League. The stripes include a pixelated gradient of red, while the shape of the black V-neck gives it a throwback 1990s look.
Away: The Blades have launched a ink away shirt for the new season. The design features a subtle pattern and the tagline reads: 'Ready for the Future. Bold in Our Belief. Dynamic in Our Game. Centred in Our City'.
Home: Southampton have once more moved away from red and white stripes for 2020/21 and have adopted a sash design once more. Celebrating 135 years of the club's history, the design is a nod to the original jerseys worn when the Saints were founded back in 1885 – and is available for pre-order on the club's store here.
Away: Southampton have got a navy blue design to wear on the road in 2020/21. It retains the historic inspiration that will be a theme for all Saints kits next season as the colour is a nod to that which was the primary home shorts and socks from 1891 until 1950.
Third: The 2020/21 third shirt – available to pre-order here – follows the same design as the home version, but in reverse colours. This is actually a more accurate representation of the 1885 shirt, which was white with a red sash. It is also similar to the 2010/11 home kit, which was another tribute to the early days.
Goalkeeper: Southampton goalkeepers will primarily wear yellow next season. Like the others, it features a tag on the bottom of the back which reads 'We March On' and, like the others, is available from the club store here. On the inside of the jersey, that same tag also reads '135' to commemorate the anniversary.
Home: Nike dropped the new Tottenham home shirt at the end of July. A graphic pattern will break up the usual plain white, while yellow returns as a trim colour for the first time in several years, featured in the V-neck – and it's all available on Nike's website.
Away: The Spurs away kit for next season is predominantly dark green, featuring pale yellow 'volt' logos. The rest of the trim will be black, but there is also going to be an element of 'lava' pink trim to it as well. It is also made with 100% recycled polyester fabric.
Third: Yellow has been a Spurs colour in the past and will return as the 2020/21 third strip, featuring both yellow shorts and yellow socks in addition to the shirt. The club crest and Nike logo are positioned centrally.
Home: It's a different take on traditional stripes for West Brom next season, with the Baggies declaring the 2020/21 home shirt 'new stripes for the Premier League'. It draws inspiration from the club's 'barcode' shirt worn back in the 1992/93 season.
Away: The 'new stripes' theme also features in the Baggies' 2020/21 away strip. The yellow and green is a traditional colour combination for the club, but the 'barcode' look gives fresh energy to it.
Third: The 'barcode' look is completed for the Baggies with a red and yellow third kit. Upon its release, West Brom reported that the home and away shirts have been selling at a record pace so far. The set of three has been dubbed 'The Greatest Trilogy' by the club.
West Ham United
Home: West Ham launched their 2020/21 shirt on the club's 125th anniversary, with a special badge marking the landmark. The actual design, meanwhile, pays tribute to the golden era of the 1960s when Bobby Moore, Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters were wearing claret and blue – and is available on the club's store immediately.
Away: The away kit is also directly inspired by West Ham's golden era of the 1960s, with the claret bands a distinct and classic Hammers look. It is not the first time it has been recreated, with versions also worn in the 1993/94 and 2011/12 seasons.
Third: West Ham’s all-black third kit with gold trim completes the 125th anniversary collection. The club badge with the crossed hammers is re-imagined in the same black and gold look and is generally said to be a celebration of the club.
Home: Wolves have brought black sleeves back for the 2020/21 season for only the third time in their history. Black sleeves previously appeared on Wolves jerseys in 2014/15 and from 1996 to 1998. The club are also returning to traditional gold socks after wearing black in 2019/20.
Away: White and blue have both been popular away colours for Wolves in the past, the latter particularly during the mid-1990s, and the club has now combined the two in a striking throwback look. The patterned shirt will be worn with white shorts and white socks.
Third: Wolves have unveiled a maroon third shirt with green trim. It will be worn with maroon shorts and green socks and gives off an unmistakable Portuguese vibe, which is perhaps fitting given the number of Portuguese players in the squad.
Home: England's new home shirt that will be worn throughout the 202/21 UEFA Nations League and at Euro 2020 next summer has throwback connotations of the shirt worn at Euro '96. The central Three Lions crest is a significant part of that.
Away: England have made a rare break from the traditional red away jersey and opted for blue instead. The graphic pattern is in keeping with the current trends, while the polo-style collar gives the shirt a different kind of look.
The Rest of Europe
Home: Gold has returned as a prominent trim colour to Barcelona's 2020/21 home shirt. The thicker neckline brings back memories of the 2010/11 season when Barça could lay genuine claim to being the greatest team of all time. It is specifically inspired by the club's 1920s golden era.
Away: Barcelona are bringing black back as an away colour for the first time since 2011/12. The gold trim complements the black base well, with the club crest, Nike swoosh and Rakuten branding also featuring in the same gold for a subtly classy look.
Third: Barcelona’s Mediterranean coastal landscape was the inspiration for the club’s bold third shirt for 2020/21. The pink hue of the morning sun and the greenish-blue of the sea are reflected in the chosen colour scheme.
Home: Real Madrid have incorporated pink trim into their 2020/21 shirt, which follows others in the new season’s adidas range with its distinctive 1990s-inspired look. This will also be the first jersey worn by the club’s new women’s team that has been launched this summer.
Away: Real had a vivid pink change strip in 2014/15 and a coral third kit last season. On both occasions the trim colour was white, but 2020/21's pink kit will feature navy blue trim instead. The design itself is actually very plain and simple, leaving the colour to do the work.
Third: Real will stick with the pink theme for the third kit as well, serving as trim for an otherwise black and grey design. Intrigue comes from quite a distinctive graphic, which is inspired by the paintings on ceramic tiles that can be seen throughout the city.
Home: Atletico Madrid's trademark stripes look will be given a very traditional makeover for 2020/21. The collar and button are a distinct throwback to the past and it is a noticeably darker shade of blue trim than the club has used in recent times. It's available to buy right now on Nike.com.
Away: Atletico's new away kit complements the home shirt, taking a similar navy blue as seen in the home collar and creating a full strip in the classy colour. The club badge, Nike logo and sponsorship branding all feature in monochrome red.
Home: Gold is the trim colour of choice for Juventus in 2020/21. The home shirt also moves away from having very bold and defined black and white stripes to more of an abstract look that makes seem a bit more raw and artistic.
Away: The away kit Juventus will wear in 2020/21 is much plainer and simpler, although there is a little bit of flair in the sleeve cuffs to add something else to it. The neck follows the same 1990s throwback template as other adidas clubs.
Third: Juventus will have an orange shirt for the first time ever in 2020/21 as a result of the bold and vibrant design that has been released as the club’s third jersey. It is part of the art-inspired design movement this season and the colour is intended to reflect confidence on the pitch.
Home: The new 2020/21 shirt swaps Inter's traditional stripes for wavy zigzags to bring a fresh perspective to a classic look. It is inspired by the city of Milan and design movement that developed and thrived there in the 1980s – and is available on Nike's website now.
Away: Inter's new away shirt for 2020/21 retains the Milan-centric inspiration, with the grid pattern said to represent the 'community of the Milanese people'. Much like the home jersey, it also take notes from Milan's 1980s post-modernist movement.
Third: Is this the ultimate throwback? Inter have brought back the grey and black horizontal stripes for this season's new third kit, which will be worn in European competition. The look was originally made famous in 1997/98 when Ronaldo's Inter wore it en-route to UEFA Cup glory.
Home: Milan's 2020/21 home jersey by Puma adds a modern design twist to the club's classic red and black stripes. The all-over pattern is directly inspired by the city's history and culture and is a nod to the architecture at the iconic Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II.
Third: Milan's new third kit takes its inspiration from the city's globally revered fashion scene. The shirt features a Houndstooth pattern that is synonymous with tailoring. Although it originated in Scotland, it quickly became used regularly in high-end Italian fashion.
Home: Roma have taken inspiration from a shirt worn when the club won the Coppa Italia in 1980. The colour gradient saw it become known as the 'ghiacciolo'...or 'ice lolly' in English. The original was created by Italian designer and Roma fan Piero Gratton, who sadly passed away earlier this year.
Away: Roma have adopted a time-less classic look with an ivory away jersey for 2020/21. It again pays tribute to the late Piero Gratton, whose design of the famous Lupetto version of the club badge adorns the front of this one.
Home: PSG are celebrating their 50th anniversary this year and their new home shirt for next season is directly inspired by an iconic early jersey that was created by French fashion designer and former club president Daniel Hechter. The club's trademark look was first adopted in 1973. You can buy it on Nike's website – with the away kit – right now.
Away: PSG's new away kit is largely just a colour reverse to the 2020/21 home strip. However, the V-neck on the home shirt is replaced by a traditional looking blue collar with buttons that nicely contrasts the white base.
Home: Bayern have brought back a classic and simple design for 2020/21. Fans have fought a campaign for home colours to be red and white only and the club listened, which means navy blue may never be seen on a Bayern home shirt again. Catch it now on adidas' website.
Away: It is a very pale 'dash grey' for Bayern away from home in 2020/21. That base is complemented by orange crests and logos for an altogether simple and easy look that comes from more or less the same playbook as the home jersey.
Third: Bayern's new third shirt moves away from the simpler designs of the home and away kits and introduces a graphic pattern intended to pay tribute to the club's Allianz Arena home. The red diamond Rauten design is found in both the club’s crest and Bavarian flag
Home: Dortmund's electrifying new home shirt for Bundesliga game has caused a stir on social media since its launch. It is also the first to feature new sponsor 1&1 on the front – and is available now from the club's online store.
Away: Dortmund's new black away shirt is unmistakably inspired by the street art that can be seen on the city's streets. The diagonal yellow sash divides the jersey into two halves, with the grey BVB graffiti graphics featuring in the bottom section.
Cup/European: Dortmund's secondary home shirt that will be worn in domestic cup and European competitions retains Evonik as its main sponsor. It features a subtle pixel pattern and draws inspiration from the city itself.
Third/Cup Away: The alternate shirt to the cup/European home shirt follows the same design but is predominantly white. The pixel pattern is grey and yellow and it is being modelled here by summer signing Jude Bellingham, who has joined the club aged 17.
