No Joke - Puma Just Has 2 Different Collars For All 2019-20 Kits

The 2019-2020 season has finally started in many of Europe's best leagues. With it, already all kits for the new season have been released. However, after we have seen most of them, we couldn't not notice that some of them are not really unique...

We already took a look at some of the most horrendous stories about the 2019-20 kits, including Adidas using the same design for dozens of teams. Today we want to draw our attention t Puma's kits for the 2019-2020 season...

Adidas (Again!) Gives Endless Number Of Teams Same Kit Design

Puma 2019-20 Kits Either Feature Round or V-Collar

While Puma's 2019-20 kits for teams such as BVB, Milan, Man City, Newcastle and Marseille have been mostly appreciated by fans, an overall look at all of them reveals that all of them have one thing in common. They do not feature interesting templates (sleeve / collar) designs.

In 2016, Nike's kits all feature the same, all-new Aeroswift design without any variations in the template.

Adidas, Puma & Other Brands Copy Nike Kit Templates
