Kit Manufacturer

Macron became Oxford United's new kit supplier, with a 4-year deal announced with the Italian sportswear giant.

EFL Branding

The EFL introduced a new charity partner.

The British Red Cross logo features a (thankfully) simplified version of the shirt numbers and player names.

The EFL sleeve patches featured a 3D embossed effect, presumably to make them harder to counterfeit. In addition, the right-sleeve gambling patch was refreshed with a new message, whilst the anti-discrimination message changed to "Together".

Away Kit & Variation

Pleasingly, the all-white away kit featured navy and yellow trim, which meant that all kits could easily mix/match.

Whilst a relatively simple design, the shirt had a timeless quality, with shadow pinstripes and a contrasting v-neck, remansisant of the mid 1980s.

Third Kit

The third shirt took an unusual twist, with the shirt being a traditional polo shirt. The official explanation was it's a 'fans shirt' which can be worn both at the match, or out with friends.

As such, the sponsors have been thanked for "foregoing" their inclusion. However, I wonder if this is more likely due to the pique polo shirt fabric being unable to take the ink.

The shirt included the 'dreaming spires' of Oxford subtly embossed on the shirttail.

Goalkeeper Kits

The keeper kits were straight from the Macron catalogue and lacked any real interest. However, there was a subtle maze effect pattern on the shirt front panel.

Remembrance Weekend

A simpler style of poppy was introduced, compared to the poppies previously worn by Oxford United.

The team wore yellow socks for this home fixture as Port Vale travelled with their blue away strip.

The FA Cup sleeve patches reverted to the design which first featured in 2020, except they now have the same 3D embossed styling as the EFL competition patches.

Manor Flooring was the left-sleeve sponsor for the first two rounds.

For the FA Cup third round, Oxford United were drawn against Premier League leaders Arsenal, with the game televised live on ITV1.

The team unexpectedly wore yellow socks for this home fixture. I can only assume it was to ensure greater visibility for the players against tricky world-class opponents.

This high-profile fixture attracted further sponsorship interest, with Crep Protect returning to Oxford United as the match sleeve sponsor.
