Kit Manufacturer

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

Football Conference Branding

The Conference League saw no changes to their branding.

Home Kit & Away Variation

With Base
Layer

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

With Base
Layer

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 black turnovers, however, these were replaced with plain variants for the second half of the season.

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

HOME Goalkeeper Kits

The keeper shirts featured a template that had been used a throughout the premier league the previous season. They featured an odd thick piping band on the collar which rather clumsily swapped position in the centre, before crossing the chest.

The royal blue jersey was considered to be the number one choice.

AWAY Goalkeeper Kits

A sky blue shirt was first used for a handful of games, which made the odd reappearance through the season, such as when playing away at York against their blue/red halved shirts.

Exact details of this sky shirt have been hard to research, with only a few grainy photos, and no other examples of this template found on the web. Can anybody help provide greater detail?

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.
