For the 2014/15 season, Manchester United will play in a stylish and innovative new third kit, Sport-locker.net can reveal.
Consisting entirely of two tones of blue, the kit is inspired by United’s tradition of blue kits from the 1980s, as well as uniform worn when they became the first English side to win the European Cup in 1968.
The shirt, shorts and socks are all a rich and vibrant blue on the front with a darker tone of the same colour on the entire back. These two tones are divided by a red stripe on both sides of the kit representing United’s famous home colour.
These stripes stretch from the collar, along both shoulders, down each side of the shirt, shorts and right down to the socks.
The half-and-half appearance is a traditional football design, but this is the first season it has ever been used on the front and back.
The shirt boasts a classic design with a sophisticated polo neck collar and three buttons in the darker tone of blue.
Inside the back of the neck is a label with the message, “Youth, Courage, Greatness” to represent the club’s values.
The new third kit will be available to purchase in stores from September 25.
