New Man United Home Shirt

new man united home shirt New Man United Home Shirt

Man United’s new home shirt for the 2009/2010 season will be red with a white ‘V’ on the front, designed and manufactured by Nike.

Pictured above, the shirt is a tribute to the Manchester United shirt worn in the 1909 FA Cup Final which United won. Albeit the shirt design is a reverse of what Man United wore a 100 years ago.

There is a question whether the shirt pictured is a fake or not. The color surrounding the team badge is a darker red than the shirt, so it’s quite possible it could be a bad Photoshop job. Thanks to Football Shirts for the tip.

Regardless, if this is the design of the shirt (or pretty close to it), what are your thoughts about the new Man United home shirt? Click the comments link below and share your thoughts.

  1. garrett says:

    this is extremely ugly, i am a huge Man U supporter and this is ridiculous!

  2. Jasper the Carrot says:

    I Like it. Not so sure what it will look like with the sponsor on it.

  3. Burt Reynolds says:

    Well… I like how Nike doesn’t have their logo splashed all over the place.

  4. Bishopville Red says:

    Seems completely consistent with what I’d heard elsewhere (and as I posted in the other new kit thread).

  5. Jimbo Slice says:

    Looks too much like Robin’s costume from the old Batman comic books. Plus, the “V” shape is a female fertility symbol, not sure the boys at Man U should want to be thought of in this way. At least, most of them.

  6. Joshua Mathews says:

    this is damn ugly man!!!!
    The current one is the best shirt ever!!!!

  7. jony says:

    its a fake

  8. itai maenzanise says:

    this is ugly shirt esp with the V-shape and collar.Man-U can do better than this

  9. Robin says:

    The big V shape is horrible. But at least there will be no AIG logo printed at front.

  10. m34ch says: – how about this one ?

  11. Wembley68 says:

    If this is the new United shirt I will be delighted, definitely the nicest home jersey I’ve seen in many year’s!!

  12. Robbie says:

    Its just awful…
    We’ll have AIG on it until the end of next season so we’re stuck with this abomination for at least a year!! If you look elsewhere at the away kit, (which is just the reverse of this but actually looks good) it has the AIG logo on it..

  13. mike says:

    i dont actually think its that bad i rather like it although like jimbo said v is the female fertility logo soo not very manly lol … BUT and its big but, if and if Saudi Telecom do sponsor us it will be worse than AIG yes they have lots of money but the official brand is BIG and UGLY … but could be worse in my opinion just roll with it guys

  14. David says:

    The best since 1968. Far better than the rubbish they wear at the moment.

  15. James says:

    I have been supporting Man Utd for about 6 year and this is the worst shirt
    i’ve seen them wear!
    Why can’t it be something like the away shirt?
    Atleast something new anyway

  16. rajun69 says:

    This design sucks!!! Immaterial who the sponsor is.

    Viva Man U. Man U forever.

  17. gaz218 says:

    all i have to say is, i dont like the collar and the flappy lapels just piss me off, when has a team won anything when they had lapels on their collar??

    • josh glen says:

      wtt u chatin u m8 a collar dunt make sum 1 winn stuff it dunt makee a difference at the end of the day it dunt matter wat u wear its how u play

  18. Spoondogg says:

    I love it apart from the stupid V that’s been slapped on it, infact i’d slap the designer 4 doin so. Wot a plank……. Love the fact that its old skool tho….. 7/10 from me…..

  19. Tito says:

    I think it’s a nice looking shirt. What will the men’s team be wearing?

  20. SEAN says:


  21. Ste says:

    What does it matter? This isn’t a fashion show, it’s football. Too many people care about what they’re going to look like in the replica – be more bothered about wearing the badge. If they’re commemorating our history then great. At the end of the day, they can go out in sheepskin jackets as long as they bring the trophies home.

  22. mag says:

    man u might play good football,
    but at least the new shirt thay will wear next
    season will make them look crap!
    which is is good!

  23. mamu says:

    this new united jersey is sucked!

  24. Jake says:

    Simple, Classic and Different.. I like it… are people forget some of the dreadful Umbro kits we had to suffer with i still think bring back the adidas years but i’m sure this kit will grow on everyone.. i seem to remember everyone orgionally hating the line on the back of the current shirt but everyone has seem to changed their mind on that…!!

  25. Jono says:

    i am a dedicated united fan and this shirt is shit talking about the 70s or wat i hope that itll be better than it will be expected it to be.

    Although i will still by the new shirt wat ever it looks like cause i am a true fan and wats the sponsor goin to be?


  26. Seve says:

    It’s a copy of the shirt when United won their first trophy 100 years ago, its for a charity game.

  27. Seve says:

    Sorry I posted this on the wrong artical.

  28. zack says:

    i’m not intrested wif the line on the center shirt..

  29. KAY says:

    the shirt design doesn’t make sense for me coz i’m always with man united forever n ever..

  30. Joshua Mathews says:

    The current one is the best i ve seen in a long time…. apart from the classic vodafone one. This one is just sheer ugly and a fake ( atleast i hope so :D)

  31. todd lincon says:

    If most of you who have left comments were ‘real’ ManUnited fans,you would know that calling the team ‘Man U’ is an insult to the club,as it is used in songs by rival fans about Munic…read the history and stop using it!!!
    Personally,i love the new shirt!

  32. shaft fc says:

    I think the shirt’s legit. The darker color looks like the trim around the crest. You can see the embroidery better in the link on comment #10.

  33. I think the one with red v shape on top and the A.I.G under it pretty nice.

  34. wilson says:

    very ugly, wouldnt buy it and im a huge united fan, and the leaked pictures of the away kit, with its lace up collar are absoluty disgusting, it’s honestly repulsive, i hope they are fake kits and the real ones look nothing like them!!

  35. Brendan says:

    Love it, Think its absolutely brilliant and hope its true. Nice to see something different, also would look better with no sponser (but i know it wouldn’t be worth the lost revenue!)

  36. Manc says:

    this shirt is horrid, far do’s theyare tying to copy the shirt from when we won our first trophy, but thatwas then and this is now, if we win all four trophies do we not want a different kit to remember it by, i personally likedthe style we had back with the total 90 design

  37. Jayy says:

    liverpools new away kit is absolutely lush though !! <3

  38. shamsul johnny says:

    ..grown up guys!! spot on with one of the comment, this ain’t fashion show!! I’ve support UTD for the last 19 years & remember when neil webb & robbo put on the ugly adidas shirt, I’ve bet not all of ya’ here know who’s Webb are aren’t you??? pathetic, don’t support UTD just because their winning & nice jersey with great players, support the club as the whole not their success, all new supporters might just lucky coz you started supported UTD when they are winning, I’ve supported when we’re not winning anything, so whatever the kit is, just show ur support & buy it., i even have the retro 86 jersey in by shelves & also the 93/94 yellow green with lace, its not about the colour, shame on any of you if support UTD because their jersey & success not because of their history.

  39. mezza says:

    I’ve been hoping and hoping that the new united shirt will be out before my dad’s 70th birthday on 9th june. he has been a supporter of manchester united for millions of years and i would love to give him the new shirt in time for his big day. I think the new shirt looks fab, however, i think it would look even fabber without the lapels. I know though that my dad would love it whatever it looked like.
    Even on my wedding day, at the altar, he said to the priest performing the ceremoney, “Manchester United Forever. “That’s what i call a true fan!

  40. mutd hughesy says:

    don’t worry, This is a complete fake

    man u!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  41. ryan says:

    i think its prity nice it not as bad as you all think and i am a big manchester united fan and they going 2 win final

  42. john says:

    no way thats the new man u kit.. if it was it would have been posted on

  43. sam says:

    i think it’s fake. this is the Real one i think

  44. Dyl Shortall says:

    this jersey is so unbelievably bad it has a big v on it which looks like dem shitty Vs dey put on fake jerseys in pro evo!!!nike betta get der act 2gether nd bring out a modern jersey not some jersey to tribute d past look to d future!!we’re gonna win more trophies nd im sure d players wudnt be caught dead in dem jerseys ha!!!cmon united!!

  45. Jorgen29 says:

    Hmm I kinda like it but they should sel these jerzey’s to us fans, not playin with it on the pitch…

    I wounder if there trouses end down there ankels lik a 100 years ago

    Greetz #1 ManUtd fan

  46. Mason says:

  47. bob says:

    I like it I think its cool

    Go on you reds

    Im so lonley

  48. Makhlouf says:

    I really like it if they only take off the V and put the something else .

  49. Thomas Salt says:

    it’s ok its not good but it is not s**t it half and half

  50. Akin says:

    Oh my god, look at that thing! I’m a United supporter and any decent United supporter who sees this and says it’s good is actually insane. You wanna be caught wearing THAT in public?

    Now I know Ronaldo is really going to leave.

  51. danial says:

    i think the shirt is cool. i will surely buy it. classic.too preety

  52. Zissu says:

    i thought the “V” was thicker and Black and the Man U logo on it… And where is the the “AIG” logo in the centre (or whatever the sponsor next season)? I think the 2007-2009 jersey was much better, but i don’t really mind this… And by the way PLEASE keep the 3rd BLUE KIT it has so much history behind it!! And also, PLEASE go back to the AWAY BLACK KIT!! It looks sooo cool!:D:)


  53. bob marley says:

    rubbish shirt

  54. joanne says:

    it looks crap, i will not wear or buy it!!!!

  55. charlene says:

    i think it s sick i wudnt buy it at all

  56. Andley says:

    Star Trek anyone ??? GLORY GLORY!!!!!

  57. Ijat-Paksu Lrg29 says:

    i think it same as bordeaux.

  58. da best says:

    itzs alrite but i thinks it look like the NRL team in australia called St George Dragons

    it would be mad with a black away kit

  59. mufctreble99 says:

    The new shirt looks awful !!! Come on Nike get a grip Utd should have a kit WORTHY of CHAMPIONS.

  60. Cj says:

    looks legit, as for the darker red for the badge, take a close look at this years badge its almost the same…

  61. DMG says:

    oh no… my worst nightmare has come true… i thot we were past the days of sickening strips. why wud we want to remember the days wen ppl had no idea of wat was decent to wear. jst imagine ronny and wazza in one of those. i agree, they’d luk like a couple extras from a early star trek film. i thot we were moving on since the last three years have been decent. oh well, if we can win the league thrice in a row one jersey’s as gud as the other.

  62. ANTOC says:

  67. paul says:

    im a united fan but that shirt is s**t get a grip nike :@

  68. juice says:

    looks horrible… woulda been pretty shweet in the 80′s… Deserve MUCH better.

  69. gary says:

    dead cool man

  70. gary says:

    it looks great

  71. paul deakin says:

    what an awful shirt i . At least no one would nick it off the washing wonder ronaldo has left if this is what the team have to wear.

  72. man united says:

    Wow what a Gangster shirt im would sure like to buy this watch imm gnna be the first!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  73. robbo says:

    the shirt is like the old days looks really good just like newton heath shirt like good olds just like champions

  74. Ben says:

    I would buy any home United shirt regardless of what it looks like. I have seen a similar one to this but with a black V and AIG on the front and I think it is more likely to be that one.
    Come on, just get behind the team rather than moaning about the kit

  75. Rob says:

    that shirt looks hideous , shocking design .

  76. milard dangelo says:

    its ok i guess ive seen better. i tink dey should start using adidas its well better than nike. it looks kind of plain but i like the collar and the v on the shirt and i think the white goalkeeper shirt looks horrible.

  77. ive seen better. i tink they should srart using adidas though its well better than nike. i like the collar but i hate the white goalkeeper shirt it looks horrible

  78. its ok. i like the collar but i think they should start using adidas. the v is cool but i hate the new goalkeeper shirt compared to last seasons.

  79. Knowledge Chikuse says:

    this is the worst kit i have EVER seen!! this must be a fake. i will never be caught wearing this piece of crap.

  80. Prash says:

    This cannot be the Man.utd shirt no ways looks like a crappy shirt !!! No sponsor !!!!!AIG is bankrupt !!!!!! U can do better NIKE!!!!!

  81. matt says:

    it is all right but i liked the old one

  82. Godson says:

    Think it’s kul but our sponsors should be saudi telecom or AIG or NIKE whch one of for d kit is cute!!

  83. utd says:

    it’s nice but man utd team will look like a cheerleaders team on da field…haha..
    glory… utd…

  84. samabadanyonce says:

    Hahahahahaha Now i understand why ronaldo had to live this Club. The New Jersey is Rubbish

  85. Gary says:

    This is NOT the new united kit. The new one has a black v-stripe and is made from a similar material to the current kit. This looks like something someone from the far east has made who has no real connection to the club or NIKE.

  86. Domo says:

    thought all u were man u fans?
    it dusnt matter how it looks!
    if u were true fans u wud wear it because u love man u!
    and wudnt mind if it looks shit or not!
    well i guess we know now who are the real manchester united fans!

  87. LUGEMWA ROGERS says:

    The T.shirt would have been good with out that V . I would propose that they design it with WHITE stripes on the arms (sleeves) man u oyeeeeeeeeee…..

  88. danny says:

    im a big man u fan and iv got to say its the worst shirt they have made. im hoping its not the reall 1 and its a fake couse i wont b buying it

  89. Chaos says:

    Oh My God what where they thinking when they designed this Sh#t. I am a huge manutd supported and Damn this is ugly. It’s like those 1970′s shirts you know way back in the day. Please let me design something if this is the final piece. I am going to be mocked by friends and family who support other teams. How could NIKE DO THIS TOP US.

  90. alex harper says:

    shockin kit!!!!! stay with this one

  91. beth says:

    i dont like this new shirt i think the other one is better its just not a nice style

  92. Luisa says:

    OMG! How ugly can this get?! The current one looks so much better!

  93. evra says:


  94. Dannyd says:

    I Hate This Shirt I Think It’s Something The Girls Team Would Wear UGLYY!

  95. John says:

    The V Stripe Look Plastic And The Collar Its Just Ergg

  96. Connor says:

    This was just a proto type if you search enough online you’ll find 2 or 3 more tho i notice by collor nike has used alot of this top in this years kit (2010/11)
