Top 10 - Best 20-21 Second Division Kits

Following up our series of 2020-21 football kit rankings, we had the idea to have a look at second divisions in particular.



While our Top 10 20-21 kits article focused mostly on jerseys released in the 'Top 5 Leagues', for this 2nd division ranking we scouted the 2nd tiers of England, France, Germany, Italy and Spain.

Top 10 - Best Kits of 20-21

Honorable mentions


10 Reggiana Away




The Reggiana 20-21 away kit introduces a clean and classic design that combines the club colors with the Italian flag.

9 Millwall Third




Although there was a bit of controversy about the design possibly being copied from a 2019 concept, the Millwall 20-21 third kit is absolutely outstanding and boasts one of most unique designs we've seen this season.

8 Karlsruhe Home




Macron is quite likely the most diverse brand out there right now, giving much more focus to the different partner teams than an overall brand aesthetic. This season's KSC home shirt is another fine example for that.

Classy Karlsruhe 20-21 Home & Away Kit Released

7 Bristol City Home




Hummel's new Bristol home kit is as classy as it gets, with the subtle jacquard striping on the front and the smart piping on the collar and cuffs just offering enough interest to not make it overly simple.

Bristol City 20-21 Home Kit Released

6 Würzburg Away




The Würzburg 20-21 away kit might not be the most eye-catching design, but the details are definitely there. Jako is a brand that's flying a bit under the radar anyway in my opinion, and they've produced a number of remarkable designs - it probably doesn't help their case that they are not really active outside of Germany.

5 Rayo Vallecano Home




Produced last minute after Kelme canceled their agreement with the club due to Covid, the Umbro Rayo Vallecano 20-21 home kit is definitely a stunner. Its clean aesthetic gets amplified by the accentuated collar and cuffs, the latter featuring a smart Double Diamond pattern.

Umbro Rayo Vallecano 20-21 Home, Away & Third Kits Released - No More Kelme

The fact that is was created at very short notice might not be visible in the design, but it's still not available to buy at this day.

4 Venezia Away




It's almost impossible to go wrong with Venezia's awesome color scheme of orange, black and green, and the 2020-21 kit is no exception here.

Nike Venezia FC 20-21 Home & Away Kits Released

3 Norwich City Third




An equally bold and fresh look, the Norwich 20-21 third kit just had to make this list.

2 Nottingham Forest Third




We've seen a lot of patterned jerseys recently and in the 20-21 season in particular, but the Nottingham Forest 20-21 third kit manages to stand out with its unique leaf design - and the colorway is not too shabby, either.

1 Osnabrück Home




Among a collection of pattern-based shirt designs this year from Puma, this one stands out in particular to me. This is even though this pattern was reserved for "lower tier" teams sponsored by the brand and not used by the likes of Manchester City or AC Milan. It looks especially stunning in this purple and white combination donned by Bundesliga 2 outfit Osnabrück.
