The latest 2018/19 Manchester United home jersey from adidas marks 140 years since the club was founded, with a train track graphic referencing United’s original name; Newton Heath (Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway) Cricket and Football Club.
In 1892, the club entered the English First Division – the highest league in the country at the time, before changing its name to the now world-renowned Manchester United in 1902, and moving to the iconic stadium of Old Trafford in 1910.
The latest 2018/19 Manchester United home jersey is constructed in a rich structured engineered shell fabric which is brought to life in a black to red fading on the shirt, and is accompanied by black shorts and red and black socks.
“The new shirt for Manchester United mixes the heritage and history of the club’s illustrious past, with modern technology and design innovation from adidas.
“When designing the kit, we wanted to tell the story of the first incarnation of the United kit, 140 years ago. Originally, the team wore dark shorts, and we’ve reinterpreted this story in a bold and contemporary way, connecting the past to the future, and combining the very best in performance with street wearability.”
