Saturday, 11 July 2020
Watford FC faced Newcastle United in the English Premier League this afternoon. Watford won the match with 2-1 - but it were the kits that people most talked about.

Kit Clash in Watford vs VfL Newcastle Premier League Match

As home team, Watford FC used their standard Adidas 2019-2020 half-and-half black / yellow home kit, combined with black shorts and yellow socks. Newcastle, meanwhile, opted for their orange third kit.

In fact, Newcastle United does not have a kit in the 2019-2020 season that is well suited for a match against yellow / black Watford. Their black / white home kit clashes even more, and their dark green away kit is also no optimal choice. The only way to avoid this bad color match-up would have been a special-edition jersey, similar as Burnley revealed earlier this week.

In the end, it was possible to distinguish both teams but still a unfavorable choice of kit.
