Man Utd’s 2020-21 home kit

Manchester United revealed their new home kit for 2020-21 on August 4.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made “DNA” a buzzword at Old Trafford and the Red Devils’ latest design from Adidas seeks to buy into that by “using the threads of the club crest itself to produce a subtly patterned base fabric”.

United have produced a “nuanced design through an innovative ‘space dye’ technique that allows separate yarns to be dyed individually, and at different lengths, to give a finish with depth, and with full details only viewable by the wearer”.

The Premier League heavyweights have also produced shirts specifically designed for children as they look to acknowledge and embrace the next generation of a loyal fan base.

Solskjaer’s side will wear their new kit for the first time when facing LASK in the second leg of a Europa League last-16 showdown on August 5.

Man Utd’s 2020-21 away kit & release date

Leaks have suggested that the Manchester club’s away kit will be a dark black – or green – colour, with a subtle pattern all over.

They have drawn speculation that the ridge-like pattern on the kit is a subtle nod to the cover of the iconic ‘Unknown Pleasures’ album artwork by Manchester Joy Division.

Of course, it’s all conjecture at this point, but the away kit could be a tribute to the pulsating waves on the album cover as it is one of the most recognisable pieces of artwork in music history.

The away kit is expected be released at some point in August.

Man Utd’s 2020-21 third kit & release date

Details on Man Utd’s third kit are scarce but if online leaks are to be believed, it will sport a standout design of jagged black stripes across a white background.

Man Utd’s third kit is set to be released in August.
