The end of Tottenham Hotspur’s season is fast approaching and that’s when attention turns to the transfer window and also for many fans the new kits the players will be wearing.
Tottenham signed a 15-year kit deal with Nike in 2018 and the American sportswear giants’ various shirts for the North London club over recent seasons have already prompted a series of contrasting opinions from fans. supporters. Leaked designs and images of what Son Heung-min & Co will be wearing in the 2022/23 season are already making the rounds, so hard is it to keep things a secret in the world of football shirts. As Spurs travel to South Korea, Scotland and Israel for pre-season games in July, they will be looking to reveal at least some of their shirts before heading out across the world.
Here’s what we know so far about Nike’s three new Tottenham kits for the 2022/23 season as well as training kit and pre-match tops.

While the home kit will of course remain white, next season’s Nike iteration will bring back a splash of yellow to the kit. The official name for the bright high-vis color is ‘Volt’ and it is expected to appear in some form on home and away shirts as well as training apparel for next season.
On the home shirt, the Volt appears on the collar and sleeve cuffs and makes the kit stand out a bit more than it has this season, while still being simple enough to be the classic Spurs home shirt. The last time Spurs had a touch of yellow on the home shirt was the 2020/21 edition and before that in 2016/17 and 2014/15 on two of the club’s Under Armor kits and then last time before that it was in 2009/10. when the Puma home kit introduced yellow into the club’s home kit for the first time in the modern era.
The AIA sponsor logo remains in their red branding and will of course spark the annual debate among Spurs fans who don’t want that color on their shirt. The Cinch shirt sleeve logo remains in its currently rich blue color.
With the Premier League season starting a week earlier this time due to the World Cup and that pre-season tour of South Korea in early July, the new shirt is set to release at the same time as the 2021 version/ 22, which was released on May 24. There is also a very bright yellow goalkeeper shirt that has done the rounds with black sponsor logos on it for Hugo Lloris to wear.
Below is a gallery of leaked images of the new away home kit, first seen on Footy Headlines, as well as images of the away, third kits, training wear and away shirts. -match.
Normally it’s the third kit that ends up dividing opinion among Tottenham fans, but this year it could end up being the most debated away kit.
There seem to be two slightly different versions of this shirt doing the trick. The original ‘leaked’ design pattern has been around for a long time with Ofoball showing it off last year as a bluish purple top with that bright Volt (bright yellow) collar and navy colored sleeves, shorts and socks dark. The AIA and Cinch logos appear in white in the templates.
Bleacher Report teased on their Instagram account a few weeks ago what the new away kit might look like and rather than just a Volt collar, the yellow is expanded into a pointed expanse of color that divides the bluish purple chest and the dark navy blue sleeves. Their version also has the Cinch logo on the sleeve in yellow as you can see below.
Last season, the away kit was released a month after the home kit, on July 22, but with the financial aspects of summer touring, the gap between release dates is likely to be closed.
The third kit is often a bolder look and this week we got our first look at what next season’s alternative offering from Tottenham and Nike could be.
twitter user Marc Baxter posted an image which he said shows the third kit lying next to the new home shirt. If this is indeed the new third shirt, it’s a turquoise number with a black collar and cuffs and the AIA and Cinch logos in white.
The third shirt normally comes out once the season has started, often in August, although last season it only arrived in September.
Here’s the photo Mark posted to Twitter this week of the two shirts side by side.
Training and pre-match kits
Getir-branded training gear for next season has also started to appear with Ofoball ‘leaking’ professional-looking images of a kid wearing what should be a black training kit, which we’ve included in the gallery above.
Another practice kit is expected to be bright yellow, using that Volt color in full rather than just splashes, with a version of Ofoball’s featured in the gallery.
There is also a stylish pre-match shirt that players will wear as they warm up on the pitch before their matches, which is navy blue and has Volt logos and a design that incorporates Spurs graphics and the word Many times. You can also see an image of Footy Headlines in the gallery above.
There have also been talks and leaks of potential Champions League white kit designs for training and pre-match wear should Tottenham manage to qualify for Europe’s elite club competition.
