Manchester United has unveiled its third shirt for the 2014/15 season.
United will debut the new shirt in its International Champions Cup game against Inter Milan in Maryland tonight at FedEx Field.
Designed by Nike, Manchester United’s third shirt is unique, to say at least. The shirt features two different tones of blue, which in inspired by the club’s tradition of wearing blue kits throughout the 1980s, as well as the iconic strip worn by Sir Matt Busby’s men during the 1968 European Cup final triumph over Benfica at Wembley.
The shirt, shorts and socks are all vibrant blue on the front with a darker tone of the same color on the back. These two tones are divided by a red stripe on both sides of the kit.
The half and half appearance is a traditional soccer design, but this is the first season it has ever been used on the front and back. The shirt also boasts a classic design with a sophisticated polo neck collar and three buttons in the darker tone of blue.
