New 09/10 Manchester United Home Shirt

manchester united 1909 fa cup final New 09/10 Manchester United Home ShirtManchester United’s new home shirt for the 2009/2010 season will be red with a large white v-shape sash down the front. Manufactured by Nike, the new shirt is a tribute to the Manchester United side that won its first FA Cup 100 years ago in the 1909 FA Cup Final when they beat Bristol City 1-0.

The shirt worn by United in the 1909 FA Cup Final was white with a large red v-shape sash down the front (pictured), but for the 2009/2010 Manchester United home shirt, the colors will be reversed.

The 1909 shirt worn by Manchester United was the brainchild of legendary United winger Billy Meredith. Before the 1909 FA Cup Final, it was realized that Man United and Bristol City had very similar football kits, so Meredith – who doubled as the club’s kit supplier and ran a sports shop – created the white shirt with red v-shape sash, and the rest is history.

Thanks to Historical Kits for the 1909 FA Cup final football kit design (pictured above). Read the interview with Historical Kits owner Dave Moor.
