Manchester United’s kit for the 2021-22 season has been unveiled.
Recent editions made by Adidas have been very similar, with the 2018-19 and 2019-20 home kits being notable exceptions, while the away kits have seen some more variation, with silver, pink, blue and gold designs.
There will be one big alteration in 2021-22, with TeamViewer replacing Chevrolet as the club’s chief jersey sponsor, so there will be a fundamental change to the feel of United’s kits.
The Manchester United home kit for 2021-22 was officially launched on July 15.
It has a retro look, with a white crew-neck collar and white cuff bands on the sleeves, in a design that has been inspired by the kits of the Sir Matt Busby era of the 1960s – the 1968 European Cup winners’ vintage in particular.
The iconic adidas three stripes will feature across the shoulders. Photos of the kit were first leaked in April.
The leaked photos of the Manchester United away kit show a design which evidently takes inspiration from the 1990-91 Red Devils away jersey, which, interestingly, was also made by adidas.
Blue and white with red insignia and adidas stripes, it appears to be a modern take on the jersey worn in the early days of Sir Alex Ferguson’s tenure which featured geometric patterns.
