Adelaide United unveiled the official 09/10 kits made by Reebok at Montefiore Hill.
Adelaide captain Travis Dodd sported a smarter updated version of the Reds home strip while the nation's under 20 footballer of the year Daniel Mullen was content in the new "All Blacks" alternate strip.
A club major sponsor was the notable absentee on United's new jersey campaign after the Football Federation Australia was handed "Big Brother" club rights after building tycoon Nick Bianco opted out of the franchise in May.
Dodd said he preferred the traditional Reds kit as opposed to Mullen who favoured "nightclub" black.
"It's nice it's something a bit different, to be honest Id rather it (black) than the Reds strip," Mullen said.
But Mullen reconsidered the favouritism when quizzed on whether black was the right option during the A-League's height of summer campaign.
Adelaide's squad will test the resolve of the new Reds strip next Friday night during the friendly clash against Perth Glory at Hindmarsh Stadium.
