THE season has ended for most clubs across Europe.
Just a handful of games remain – although some pretty big ones among those – before we head for a summer break.
And then do it all again next season.
As is the way in modern football, clubs across the world will now change their look, releasing new home, away and third kits as well as a range of other merchandise.
Some have done it already.
On Sunday Juventus also revealed their new home shirt – to much mocking.
But plenty of clubs have left fans waiting.
In fact the likes of Arsenal, Manchester United and Man City have kept supporters holding on, with release dates expected in June and July.
As Classic Football Shirts co-founder Doug Bierton told SunSport in February, clubs will be going retro this year.
He said: “The patterns have been very prominent, influenced by shirts from the 80s and early 90s – which, for me, was the pinnacle of football shirt design.
“Most football fans will agree that was when the best football shirts were produced.
“The fashion of the day is 80s and 90s-inspired – graphic designs are big at the moment and that’s what people are wearing.
“If companies release shirts like that they know they’re going to be big sellers.”
We’ve scoured the deepest, darkest corners of the web and sites such as FootyHeadlines to find all the latest news, leaks and images for kits that are expected to appear next season.
Gooners are massively excited for their kits next season.
Arsenal will switch Puma for Adidas after the Geman sportswear giant agreed a mammoth £300million, five-year deal with the club.
Leaks of the home kit have varied, but the latest versions show Adidas have gone for a safe red and white option with few frills.
It’s the away shirt that has Gooners buzzing.
The return of Adidas is expected to mean the return of the iconic ‘Bruised Banana’ – the yellow and blue kit from the early 90s that Arsenal fans adored.
Different versions have been leaked but no final word has yet been given.
The third kit is expected to be navy.
The Cherries unveiled their new home kit at the start of the month.
Again made by Umbro, there’s not much you can do wrong with black and white stripes.
Next season features much more red, with the sleeves a notable switch from black to red.
There’s also a subtle diagonal graphic on the front.
The away shirt is yet to be released.
The Blues also released a striking new kit a couple of weeks ago, debuting it in the final home game of the season.
The kit is ‘rush blue’and features an all-over graphic print.
Its abstract design is inspired by Stamford Bridge, with steel girders and shapes taken from the Matthew Harding Stand.
Leaked images of an away kit show it to be plain white with small bits of blue and red trim on the sleeves and collar.
Very little info about the third kit is known, although there are rumours it will be black and orange.
Nike are definitely going retro with all their third kits – using an old logo – and some of the kits will feature an ‘NFL-style’ collar.
The Eagles debuted their new home kit in a thrilling 5-3 win against Bournemouth on the final day of the season.
Gold trim has been ditched in favour or a less bold white, while the blue stripes on the kit also have a white stripe through them.
While this season’s kit had fading on the stripes, the blue keeps it’s colour to the bottom.
The away kit has not yet been released.
Next season’s kit will feature much more gold – the three Adidas stripes and the logo will be in gold, rather than white.
Some gold piping on the sleeves has been removed with those now all blue.
The biggest change is a subtle graphic on the kit, which gives it a chequerboard effect up close.
Away and third kits were leaked on social media in April, but it’s not clear which is which and how accurate they are – although it was leaked alongside the new home kit, which turned out correct.
The leaked Leicester kits showed one pink shirt, with black trim, and another black one with white detail.
The Reds could wear their new kit in the Champions League final.
That’s not yet been confirmed, but next year’s home shirt does officially go on sale the day after the big one in Madrid.
The new kit is quite a change from the current one.
The badge and New Balance logo are now gold, while there are thin white stripes running down the front of the shirt.
Bob Paisley’s signature is on the inside neck area – a nod to the legendary manager who would have turned 100 in January.
The pinstripe look is a subtle design to Paisley’s 1982-82 team.
An away kit has also been leaked, featuring a plain white colour scheme with blue detailing and a small red flourish on the sleeves.
The two-time champions have dumped Nike for Puma – DOUBLING the value of their deal.
Nike paid £20m to Man City, while Puma will sponsor the whole of the City Football Group (seven clubs including New York City and Girona) for £50m.
But the German brand are keeping their cards close to their chest, with little information on what a kit may look like.
There will be no radical changes in the colour scheme for the home kit.
Some leaks indicate the away kit will be black and peach, while the third will also have the same peach colour with yellow.
All leaks indicate that Manchester United will heavily lean on their 1998-99 Treble-winning Champions League kit for inspiration.
It’s been 20 years since that famous night in Barcelona, with little else to celebrate after a poor couple of seasons, United will draw on those brilliant memories.
Retail giant Sports Direct accidentally shared an image of the design and while it’s not going to be released until July, it’s all but sure to be this design.
It features the badge in a shield, with black and gold background, while there is a plain red look with black trim.
The badge also has a ‘starball’ background, like found on Champions League branding.
On the hip area is a nod to that famous night, text reads: ‘Treble Winners – BCN_26.05.1999’.
The famous late goals are also referenced on the sleeves.
On one it says ’90+1′ and the other ’90+3′ – the times of Teddy Sheringham’s equaliser and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s late winner.
The away kit is expected to be a subtle grey with hints of black and red, while a leaked image of a third kit shows it to be black and orange.
A subtle white graphic of the Manchester rose is plastered all over the kit.
No real specifics are yet known of what Spurs players are going to wear next season.
The classic white and navy is staying, with the only reliable information to be found stating that the fading look at the bottom of the shirt will be ditched.
The away kit is expected to be navy, with some leaks showing the club badge and Nike logo will be iridescent.
Like with other Nike-made kits, the third will be retro, with a light-blue/teal colour the main scheme.
The Hornets had one of the better April Fool’s gags this year when they unveiled a horrible new kit that later turned out to be fake.
That kit featured a barmy yellow, red, black and white diamond design and white shorts.
Later the same day, the club released the proper kit.
Ditching the stripes, Watford have gone for a Balckburn Rovers-inspired half-and-half top in black and yellow, with detail and trim in red.
There are a few concept kits around, but no concrete details on any of the other Premier League teams can be found.
Nothing official from the club just yet but all leaks point to one thing: big change.
It’s not quite as big as President Josep Bartomeu wanted - he wanted to modernise the club badge but the rest of the board were not so happy.
The home kit will feature a chequered design – think Croatia – with a bright trim that is less gold and more yellow.
The new look Barcelona badge was to have slightly different colours, would remove the letters ‘FCB’ and would get rid of black borders.
However, the new look wasn’t well received by the board so it might stay the same at least this season.
The away kit will lean heavily on a favourite from the 1970s.
Made iconic by football legend Johan Cruyyf, the new away kit is expected to be bright yellow with a red and blue sash across the front.
Like other Nike third kits, Barcelona’s will draw heavily on the past with a retro logo and full collar.
The colouring will be the teal, blue and red like the kits worn by Stoichkov and Ronaldo.
Los Blancos and German giants Adidas are closing in on a record-breaking kit deal that would become the richest in sports.
It’s not quite over the line yet but Real, who have worn Adidas since 1998, are set to sign a 10-year, £1BILLION agreement.
All the leaks indicate that Adidas will bring back one of Real Madrid fans’ favourite colour combos – white with gold trim.
A similar colourway was worn in the 2011-12 season, the year they won the title under Jose Mourinho.
Not much is known about the away or third kits.
The away kit is expected to be navy and the third kit a mint green, a lighter shade than the kit worn by Spurs away from home this season.
The famous old club are in the second year of their deal with Puma and the German brand have decided to keep the traditional stripes with some smart, but subtle, changes.
The vertical stripes are expected to be a lot thinner than this season, while the striped look has been extended onto the sleeves – this year the sleeves were a mostly black block.
There is no information on the away or third strips.
The Italian giants, like rivals Juventus, are set to make a massive shift in the traditional vertical stripe design of their kits.
It is rumoured that Inter will go for diagonal stripes next season, on part of the home shirt.
There are conflicting reports about whether that will be across the whole shirt or just in the centre of the kit, where the Pirelli logo sits.
There’s no info on the away kit, but, in line with Nike’s third kit retro trend, the third will draw heavily on the much-loved kit of the late 1990s.
The one when Inter won the Uefa club during Ronaldo’s first season, it is mainly black with dark blue and gold trim.
The Old Lady drew a lot of mocking and criticism on Sunday after they wore their new home kit.
Ditching the traditional stripes, Juve debuted a half-and-half black and white kit.
The big feature came in the form of a thick pink strip down the middle of the shirt – and it’s fair to say it hasn’t gone down very well.
On social media it was described as the ‘worst kit in club history’ by a large number of fans.
Further change saw the club switch away from white socks and shorts to the more traditional black shorts and socks.
The away kit is expected to be white and a subtle shade of red and the third kit will be blue and grey.
Both of those kits will be released in July.
Unlike their rivals, Roma appear to be staying in touch with tradition.
The home colours remain the same, with the main feature set to be a gold zig-zagging line running down the middle of the shirt.
Little is known of the away and third kits, although the second strip will be white and the third strip navy.Bayern Munich
The Bayern marketing department will not be too impressed with Franck Ribery.
The club decided to give away 250 of the new shirts to fans to celebrate the Frenchman’s final match at the club – but he leaked the kit before it should’ve been.
Full details can’t be seen, but the colour very clearly shows a lighter red than in recent seasons.
Other leaks show a horizontal graphic on the front.
The Yellow Submarine wore their new kit over the weekend.
Yellow and black as ever, the main change is an eye-catching pattern on the shoulders.
There is also text on the inside neck area to celebrate the club’s 110-year anniversary in December.
It reads: ‘110 Years. Yesterday. Today. Tomorrow.’
Leaked images of a black shirt with a grey graphic have also circulated.
When Jordan brand took their first steps into football with PSG they were expected to do a line of off-field and leisurewear.
But this season the American firm, a sub-division of Nike, designed PSG’s Champions League kit and next season they will go a step further.
The kit, although not yet official, will feature a similar vertical line down the middle, but next year there will be a big chunk of white added to the red.
The shirt is ready to be released but can not be done so until July 1 as PSG will no longer be sponsored by Fly Emirates.
Accor Live Limitless (ALL) will be the principle sponsor on the new jersey and the deal does not begin for another couple of months.
For the away kit and third kits, Jordan brand will lean heavily on basketball star Michael Jordan’s glittering playing career.
Named ‘Infrared 23’, the colour for the away shirt is basically the same red Jordan played in for the Chicago Bulls.
It will also feature the famous ‘Jumpman’ logo.
The away kit is expected to be black and white.

The Dutch giants crashed out of the Champions League last week but wasted no time in getting their fans excited for next season.
The morning after, the club released their new shirt.
Ajax’s kit is so iconic you can’t really go wrong.
The subtle changes see a thin bit of black trim added to the neck and sleeves – the flag of Amsterdam is black, white and red – while the badge is back to black and white.
In recent years it has been red and white.
The Bhoys launched their new kit at the start of the month.
Celtic’s kit is another iconic design that rarely goes wrong.
The main changes this year are the addition of a traditional collar, away from a round-neck and a bigger block of white on the shoulders.
It almost looks smart enough to wear with jeans.
