adidas has officially revealed Manchester United’s third kit for the 2016/2017 season and it’s inspired by the Mancunian club’s working-class origins as Newton Heath LYR F.C. The white and black strip takes its primary inspiration from the city of Manchester’s coat of arms, which features the worker bee — a symbol of determination and work ethic. This insignia has been integrated into the design of a Badge of Honor and a honeycomb pattern along the sleeves, while the ship from the Newtorn Heath F.C. crest has been incorporated into the United badge as well.
The kit will make its on-pitch debut in the Premier League side’s first away match against Bournemouth on August 14. It remains to be seen whether French star Paul Pogba will be dabbing in this kit come match day, but let us know of your transfer speculations in the comment section.
