As we enter April, Premier League clubs will soon start to reveal their new kits for next season.
Gone are the days that kits would only be changed every two years to give supporters value for their money.
Also, gone are the days that you have to wait for the team to officially unveil the new kits before you see them.

That’s because, thanks to social media, you can easily discover leaked images of your favourite side’s new kit on social media well before the club wants you to.
And this morning, an Arsenal kit has been doing the rounds on Twitter that could prove to be their 2016/17 strip.

It can’t be confirmed that Arsene Wenger’s players will definitely be sporting this jersey next campaign - and Gooners will be praying that the leak is just a fake.
Well, these Arsenal fans in particular who took to Twitter to express their disgust at it.
Here is an image of the leaked kit.
And here are their furious reactions.
As you can see in the picture, the colour blue features heavily - something Arsenal fans aren’t too pleased with. If this kit turns out to be genuine, it will be the first time since the 1889/99 season that the club have worn blue shorts - that was before the club moved from Woolwich to Highbury in 1913.
Whatever the kit Arsenal players will be wearing next season, it’s unlikely it will feature a golden Premier League badge on their arm to represent that they’re champions.
The Gunners trail league leaders Leicester by 11 points - although they do have a game in hand - with just seven matches remaining. Wenger’s side still face tough trips to West Ham and Manchester City as they bid to win their first Premier League trophy since 2004.
Wenger still believes
Despite being behind both Leicester and north London rivals Tottenham, Wenger still believes his side can be crowned champions come May.
“Yes of course they can be caught,” he said in a press conference, per The Mirror.
“Why not? As long as it’s mathematically possible, there’s a strong possibility.”
Wenger continued: “You look at the difficulty of the Premier League and they have been very consistent but every game is very, very tight. That can go the other way.
“Honestly, we know that we need nearly the perfect run and we know as well that we don’t look only in front of us, we look behind us as well.
“We are chased by a group of teams who can make it very difficult for us so we have just to focus on our performance and hope we finish in a very strong way,” he added.
Wenger knows the Premier League is the only way to salvage the club’s season after they were humbled in the FA Cup at home to Watford and thrashed by Barcelona in the Champions League.
