Man Utd 2019/20 Kit: Manchester United have released their home kit for the upcoming season.
The new Manchester United jersey has been released officially by the club and the jersey will be available from today (May 16, 2019). The Red Devils are spending their fifth year with Adidas, having signed a ten-year contract with the firm in 2014.
The unique thing is to boast about the 1999 treble season, which they won under their historic manager. Sir Alex Ferguson’s side lifted the Premier League, FA Cup, and Champions League – which remains an undisputable foot by any other English side till date.
The new kit pays reverence to that particular season, and it is the sole reason why the club has decided to stick with retro for this season, celebrating the 20-year anniversary since the famous treble win.
The iconic treble was clinched when Manchester United came back from 1-0 down to win the game 2-1, courtesy to injury time strikes from Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The new shirt acknowledges the minutes in which those historic goals were scored with 90+1 and 90+3 printed on the sleeves.
The dates of the FA Cup final win over Newcastle United and decisive Premier League match against Tottenham Hotspur are also displayed, along the bottom of the shirt.
Meanwhile, the goalkeeping shirt is inspired by the top worn by legendary number 1, Peter Schmeichel, during the 1998/99 season. It has a tiger pattern featuring a dark purple two-tone design.
In order to recognise the immense contributions, the commemorative crest has been added to the kit which makes it even more special to celebrate that euphoric moment.
The new home kit will be worn for the first time on the pitch in the Treble Reunion match at Old Trafford on Sunday 26 May. The first team will then wear it in Perth on Wednesday 17 July, during the second game of Tour 2019 against Leeds United.
