According to a press release from United kit provider Nike:
This season Manchester United will play in a new home kit inspired by the traditional red, white and black club colours infused with a distinctive pattern iconic in club history.
The body of the shirt is traditional red with a white crafted crew neck collar and central black stripe to replicate the design of the club’s iconic bar scarf, which has previously appeared on the shirts of legendary United sides of the past, including the 1977 and 1985 FA Cup winners, and on the back of the 2008 Champions League and Barclays Premier League winners.
The retro bar scarf is an instantly recognisable Manchester United pattern, held aloft by fans and players in times of both celebration and remembrance.
Inside the front of the shirt, on the back of the club crest, is the phrase ‘Relentless’, which perfectly captures United’s pursuit of success and drive to consistently win the greatest trophies in club football.
On the back of the shirt below the neck is a small devil from the club crest, while inside the neck reads ‘Manchester United.’
While the history and tradition of the club is present in the shirt design, the new home kit is made from Nike’s ground-breaking recycled polyester — which for the first time includes both the shirt and shorts.
Each complete kit is made up of up to thirteen reclaimed plastic water bottles. This new manufacturing process reduces energy consumption by up to 30% compared to manufacturing traditional polyester and saves nearly 100 million plastic water bottles from being dumped at landfill sites.
The home shorts this season are entirely white except for a small woven tab on the hem, which also features the black and white stripe from the United bar scarf.
And the new home socks are black with a small white devil from the club crest on the calf and a red, white and black striped band at the top.
