Ahead of the 2022/23 season, adidas Football and Manchester United have revealed the club’s retro-inspired home shirt. The focal point of the shirt is the return of the collar, a recurring motif throughout the club’s history that is used for the first time since adidas and Manchester United relaunched their partnership in 2015.
The white collar contrasts against the classic red of the shirt, as well as featuring a red geometric pattern that references previous kits. The design of the shirt is finished with a subtle tonal pinstripe pattern, as well as black detailing including the adidas Three Stripes.
Unveiling the kit, adidas Design Director Inigo Turner said:
“The polo collar is synonymous with Manchester United. Turned up or folded down, it has played a starring role in many of the club’s biggest moments. With such a rich history, we wanted to pay homage to some of the club’s most legendary kits and players, whilst capturing the essence of home brought into the present day with a new perspective on the strong visual identity and patterns that run through the DNA of the club”
The 2022/23 home jersey will make its on pitch debut in Manchester United’s friendly against Liverpool on July 12. The kit is available now from the adidas web store and the Manchester United web store.
