Manchester United’s new home kit for the 2021/22 season was seen in stores before its official launch.
The new kit will have a new main sponsor after the club’s partnership with Chevrolet ended after a seven-year partnership at the end of the season. The new sponsor Team Viewer will debut on the kit for the first season of a five-year contract.
After a design was released online a few months ago, it seems to have been confirmed that it is true with new images showing the red band on sale in stores, images appearing through Footy Headlines.
The kit has a simple red design, with a white finish and color, and the club’s traditions obviously played into the minds of adidas designers, as the words “Youth, courage, success” are inscribed on the inside of the collar.
The official release date of the kit is currently unknown, although with United’s first pre-season friendly set for July 18 against Wayne Rooney’s Derby County, it is believed that the band will be officially revealed before then.
In the first competitive match of the season, United will also wear the kit, while they will take on Leeds United at Old Trafford on August 14, at the start of the Premier League lunch.
