adidas today revealed the new Manchester United Football Club away kit for the 2015/16 season. The away shirt will be debuted in the Barclays Premier League’s first ever Friday night fixture on August 14th against Aston Villa.
The kit takes inspiration from classic away shirts from the club’s illustrious history, including shirts worn by the legendary Busby teams of the 1960s. The new shirt features a classic v neck cut collar and three stripe design down the shoulder, as well as a graphic design on the hem of the shirt taken from the 1990 shirt famously worn by Ryan Giggs in his debut season.
Taking design inspiration from iconic three-stripe United kits from the 1980s, adidas have revisited the archive by bringing both classic red and white kits back once more, taking familiar style features that were loved by the fans and combined them with the latest performance technologies to produce innovative, modern classics.
The new shirts will be launched as part of adidas’ “Break Expectations” campaign, released to demonstrate the start of a new era for the soccer club as they return to the UEFA Champions League and start the 2015/16 season.
