    Manchester United Unveil Third Kit for New Season

    Manchester United have unveiled their third kit for the 2020/2021 season. We think it is beautiful.
    Designed with adidas, the kit presents a visually distinctive design, inspired by striped jerseys from the club’s history.

    “From United’s first striped kit over 100 years ago, to the eye-catching designs of the 1970s and 80s, the latest release aims to provide a fresh update to tradition, while delivering a vibrant new print”, the club said on their website.

    "Love the new United shirt," Beckham posted, along with an image of him smouldering while wearing the jersey.

    To create the monochrome design, Adidas says it took elements from various United kits of the past and deconstructed them, hacking them apart and re-stitching them to create a latter-day Frankenstein's monster of a shirt.

    Is it an abstract zebra print? An attempt to hypnotise the opposition? A jumpsuit from a futuristic space prison? So many questions and so few answers.

    It has to be said that the players seem to like it -- Aaron Wan-Bissaka, for one, looks delighted.

    Bruno Fernandes, meanwhile, has the look of a man who knows that no outfit could diminish his red-hot reputation right now.

    You've got to hand it to United. With their "bus seat" home shirt, their "black olive camo" away jersey and now this, they're certainly not resting on their laurels with their kits for the new season.

    The 2020-21 third strip is said to be imbued with over a century of United DNA, with the club playing in stripes the very first year they moved into Old Trafford, back in 1910.

    They've kept quiet about the fact that those stripes were actually blue and white, perhaps due to the association with a certain neighbouring club who play just across town.

    “The result is surprising, unexpected and demonstrates a continued ambition to push the boundaries of shirt design.

    The release of the new third shirt follows the launches of the new home kit, which celebrates the club’s DNA with an imprint of “MANCHESTER UNITED” running through the shirt, and an away jersey which pays homage to the club’s famous travelling away support.
