2018-19 kits: Every new, official home and away jerseys for Barcelona, Man Utd, Liverpool & more

AC Milan have parted ways with Adidas for 2018-19 and, for the first time ever, Puma are the manufacturers of the club’s new kits.

Naturally, the Serie A giants retain their iconic red and black stripes, but there are some slight alterations in style, with a button-up collar being incorporated.

The ‘Diavolo Rossonero’ (Red and Black Devil) features on the back of the neck as a tribute to the club’s founder Herber Kilbin, who once said his team would be “a team of devils. We’ll be red like the flames that will animate our souls and black like the fear our opponents will feel.”

Ajax’s home kit for the 2018-19 campaign retains the club’s traditional red and white design, with a vertical red stripe flanked by white on either side of the chest and back. 

Adidas’ famous three stripes occupy the shoulders and they are red in colour, while Amsterdam’s iconic trio of St Andrew’s crosses are present on the back of the neck.

Ajax launched their new away kit on their social media channels at the end of April, asking their fans to give it a rating from one to 10.

The reaction was largely positive, with supporters mostly praising the new dark away jersey.

Arsenal’s first home shirt since the departure of Arsene Wenger features red stripes on the white sleeves, as well as a diamond pattern on the front of the strip.

White shorts and socks complete the kit.

The Gunners have gone for a two-tone navy blue and red jersey for their away games next season – quite a change from last season’s lighter effort.

The shorts are a blend of the two colours, while the socks are mostly navy blue with a red stripe on the top.

The Europa League holders’s new kit continues the traditional them of red and whit stripes as the Rojiblancos look for an improved campaign in both La Liga and the Champions League under Diego Simeone.

The new Barcelona strip features the iconic blue and garnet-coloured stripes, with the shirt designed to unite the 10 districts of the city of Barcelona.

Ernesto Valverde’s side displayed the kit for the first time in their Liga finale against Sociedad.

Barcelona’s new away kit for 2018-19 takes its inspiration from that worn by the swashbuckling side of 2005-06 – featuring the likes of Ronaldinho, Deco and Samuel Eto’o – that swept to Liga and Champions League glory that season. 

It is a striking yellow colour and strips of the famous blaugrana can be found on the sleeves.

Bundesliga winners Bayern will again wear their trademark red shirt and shorts, as well as marine blue shorts.

The new shoulder stripes pay homage to the treble winning side of 2012-13, when Jupp Heynckes guided the Bavarians to the domestic double and the Champions League.

The new Borussia Dortmund home kit is predominantly yellow, as you’d expect, with the chest area of the jersey solidly so.

A v-neck collar is incorporated and black adorns the sleeves with a thick yellow stripe breaking through.

Celtic’s new shirt is manufactured by New Balance and features a tartan design in the green sections. “For more than 10 years I have had the honour of pulling on the famous Celtic jersey,” captain Scott Brown said. “I can’t wait to play in this new kit.”

Celtic’s away kit for the 2018-19 season is predominantly white with green featuring on the shoulders, as well as the New Balance and sponsor’s logos.

The club have taken the bold decision to use a different badge on the away kit – a Celtic cross – which is a strong tribute to their connection with Ireland.

However, their Scottish identity also features in a subtle tonal tartan design, which is woven into the white of the shirt.

The 2018-19 season will see Chelsea remain in their famous royal blue, but with flourishes of red and white half-stripes added to the shirt.

The blue shorts and white socks, with a blue and red trim, are inspired by strips from the 1980s and 1990s.

Everton’s new strip is manufactured by Umbro, who collaborated with supporters in the process of selecting the design.

As is customary, the Toffees will wear their famous royal blue with white trim.

The 2018-19 Galatasaray strip returns to the club’s traditional half-and-half design, following a spell with less conventional kits.

It’s much of the same when it come’s to Inter’s new kit, with the black stripes and black sleeves pierced by the royal blue background.

The Milanese symbol il Biscione (a grass snake) is represented in the design with what Nike describes as a “serpent-like pattern rising up the club’s quintessential stripes.”

In keeping with tradition, Inter’s away kit is white, with the club’s iconic nerazzurri colours featuring on the collar.

Like the home kit, a serpent-like design is incorporated as a nod to the Milanese biscione (or vipera), which is a well-known emblem of the city.

Juventus’ new kit for 2018-19, made by Adidas, features thicker vertical stripes than recent seasons but the team’s customary three stars above their crest remain.

Liverpool’s New Balance home kit for the 2018-19 campaign retains the popular pepper red colouring and pays tribute to the victims of the Hillsborough disaster by including the eternal flame on the neck of the shirt.

Jurgen Klopp’s side will wear a deep violet shirt when playing away from Anfield next season, with the kit including homages to the club’s new Main Stand and those that died in the Hillsborough disaster.

The last time the Merseyside outfit wore a similar colour came in 2013-14 when their third kit included purple and they finished second in the Premier League – can they go one better next term?

Manchester City have revealed a kit which commemorates the club’s first ever title triumph in 1937. 

In the club’s iconic blue colour, the new strip has speed blur stripes along the arms and shoulders, along with a button detail on the collar, with navy socks and white shorts completing the kit.

Manchester United’s retro third strip is inspired by the royal blue worn by the club when they won the 1968 European Cup. The kit will be worn for the first time on the club’s pre-season tour of the United States.

Paris Saint-Germain have continued to refresh their traditional design, though hardcore fans will be disappointed to see the complete disappearance of the club’s traditional white band on the front of their kit.

Real Madrid’s iconic white home shirt has been altered slightly for 2018-19, with black replacing the striking turquoise blue on the Adidas shoulder stripes and the sponsor’s logo. As well as that, a buttoned collar has returned.

As the reigning Club World Cup winners, the gold logo denoting their status as global champions remains for a second season in succession.

The design recalls the kit worn by Los Blancos in 2002, when they won La Novena.

Real Madrid’s away kit for 2018-19 is not much of a departure from the previous season’s, but, like the home version, the turquoise colour has been ditched from the design.

The chief colour is metallic black, while the Adidas stripes, which feature on the shoulders, and the collar are a slightly lighter grey. The sponsor and manufacturer’s logos are white, which contrasts boldly against the black.

As with the home kit, the golden Club World Cup symbol features on the chest.

The base of Roma’s 2018-19 home kit is formed by ‘Lorica Hamata’, the chainmail armor worn by soldiers in ancient Rome, as a way of displaying ‘the unbreakable bond between the club, the city and the fans’.

Roma’s away kit for the 2018-19 season is all grey in what Nike says is a tribute to the Capitoline Wolf, which is the iconic ancient symbol of the Italian capital.

“A classy wolf grey kit fits well with the mythology surrounding the city and how the club places great value on this important symbol,” said Nike Football senior design director, Pete Hoppins.

The lupetto – Italian for ‘little wolf’ – also makes an appearance on the back of the jersey after last being incorporated into the design in 2016. 

Valencia revealed their away kit for the new season on the last day of Liga action, sporting their new dark blue and orange threads against Deportivo.
