And with the growing interest in sports fashion year on year, football fans are starting to have more and more opinions about the jerseys their team wears with each passing season.

2022/23 kit releases

It’s a phenomenon we’re well and truly guilty of buying into and we can no longer watch a new kit hit our Twitter feeds without stopping, taking a closer look and wondering if we like it or not.

It’s no wonder, then, that we’re fans of the voting system at Football Kit Archive where fans can clearly express their feelings on historical, current and leaked kits by giving it a rating between one and five stars.

This, in turn, will be aggregated with the votes of other supporters to give an overall score out of five which can be used to compare how much certain kits are loved or disliked against each other.

Fans vote on the worst Premier League kits

Now you probably understand where we’re coming from because you’re no doubt as intrigued as we are to know which Premier League 2022/23 kits are most loved and reviled by those who will wear them on the terraces.

Or not, as might be the case for this particular article, as we’re going to bring you the 10 Premier League kits that have been leaked or released for the 2022/23 season with the lowest fan scores of all.

From loud goalie jerseys to sinister alternate jerseys, people have spoken and the 10 designs they consider the worst of the bunch go as follows:

Which kit do you like the least?

If anyone taking their time evaluating football shirts is anything to go by, kit makers can probably expect lower than usual sales when it comes to these unloved releases.

It’s certainly interesting that so many goalkeeper kits have been rejected, but it’s clear that draping your number one in bright, bashful colors doesn’t sit well with the fans as it does with the referees.

And even we’re starting to come to the idea that the Spurs away shirt might not be quite cracked for having initially been courted by the purple, green and black combination.

Nonetheless, there are still a few shirts to hit the clothes rails ahead of the big kick-off in early August with Fulham, for example, having bucked the trend by not releasing a single kit so far.

But you can rest assured that whenever these final designs are unveiled for the world to see, fans will be voting with their feet on whether it gets them to run for the hills or run for the bank.
