Manchester United has followed the recent launch of its home kit for the new season with the unveiling of its Nike 2010/11 away kit.
According to the Manchester United website:
The new away kit for 2010/11 combines club history with new age technology – as every shirt will be made entirely from recycled polyester, from up to eight plastic water bottles, as part of Nike’s ‘Considered Design’ programme.
The club’s away shirt this season will be white with a black and red trim — with a bold chevron print on the sleeves. Aon, the new shirt sponsor, features on the front of the shirt whilst inside the shirt, on the back of the club crest, is the club’s mantra “Believe”. The message sits right next to the heart while the symbolic Red Devil sits on the sleeve of the shirt and the shorts to add the finishing touches to the kit.
The new away strip has been engineered to give players a greater competitive advantage than ever before, keeping players drier and more comfortable, allowing them to maintain their optimum body temperature and perform at their peak on the pitch.
The Manchester United Nike 2010/11 away jersey will see action for the first time later on today when the club meets a League of Ireleand XI in a pre-season friendly.
