The Red Devils lineup is complete for the coming campaign, as adidas unveil the Manchester United third shirt for the 20/21 season. Sitting alongside the already released home and away shirts, this third option is loud, brash, and sure to divide opinion, with the German brand saving the majority of its risk-taking design for this final flourish. It’s brave, it’s bold, and it doesn’t just stop at the shirt, either, travelling down through the shorts and socks – although this is for fans only, with the team playing in plain white shorts and white socks.
United have a history with striped shirts, having played in a striped shirt over 100 years ago. Since then they've had eye-catching designs in the 1970s and 80s, and this new shirt aims to provide a fresh update to tradition, while delivering a vibrant new print. Stripes go back to the team’s first year at its home in Old Trafford, when the team wore a classic blue and white striped shirt as the alternative kit. The collar on this new jersey features a ‘110 years of stripes’ sign off, signifying the history of the club’s jerseys.
