Following the fantastic success of the Fun Day on Saturday Oxford United are pleased to announce that the new blue away kit is now available online

Oxford United was formed as amateur club Headington in 1893, adding the suffix United the following year, and competed in local leagues until being elected to the Southern League and becoming professional in 1949.
From 1925 to 2001 Headington United / Oxford United played at the Manor Ground on the London Road in Headington. In 1960, Headington United was renamed Oxford United in order to give it a higher profile. Its history is quite unlike that of any other club in English football.
In the space of less than half a century, it has joined the Football League, climbed from the Fourth Division to the First in 20 years, won the League Cup, then endured an 18-year decline which saw it relegated to the Conference—making it the first team to have won a major trophy to endure this disappointment.
