Like in 2018-19, Puma is the brand with the most teams seen - it kept the same 5: Olympique de Marseille, Amiens, Nîmes, Stade Rennais and Girondins de Bordeaux. Nike retain the second place despite losing to Monaco, as the other two they had (PSG and Montpellier) were joined by two of the promoted teams: Stade Brestois and FC Metz.

The podium is completed by three brands - Adidas (Lyon and Strasbourg), Kappa (Angers and Monaco) and New Balance (LOSC Lille and FC Nantes); the remaining five teams' jerseys are made by fve brands - Le Coq Sportif (Saint-Étienne), Umbro (Stade de Reims), Lotto (Dijon FCO) and Joma (Toulouse).

In total, there have been just two kit maker switches.
