We’re still a long ways away from the start of regular season football again, but it isn’t too early to take a look at football kits.
Nor is it too early to look at possibly the worst kit out there, courtesy of Barnsley FC:

The rain adds to the aesthetic.
First: Way too much red.
Second, I don’t really know what to make of the stars except that they look terrible. Also they have the Barnsley crest above the Puma logo above the US Mobile logo with the words “US Mobile” below the US Mobile logo.
On either side of the Barnsley crest are two huge stars. And there are two additional stars above those stars.
Third, the gradient. Just awful.
In fairness to Barnsley, their away and third kits aren’t too bad. Dare I say, their third kit is really solid except for the horrible US Mobile logo.

Our away and third kits are now available to pre-order!
But I think for those watching the EFL Champ this year, they’re gonna be seeing their red kit far more times than that third kit.
It’s definitely one way for a League One club stand out.
