Manchester United Home 2016/2017 shirt
Manchester United Home 2016/2017
Adidas and Manchester United have launched the club’s new home kit for the 2016/17 season, taking inspiration from the club’s early years as Newton Heath Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Football Club. In the second year of the partnership with United, Adidas has taken cues from the club’s illustrious history, with a two-tone red-split design evoking the two-tone Newton Heath kit of 1878.
Adidas and Manchester United signed a world-record kit deal in 2014 which came into effect with the start of the current season. After the first Adidas Manchester United home kit boasted a classic design, the new Manchester United 2016-17 home jersey is more adventurous.
MANCHESTER UNITED 16-17 HOME KIT
Inspired by the green and yellow shirts worn by its predecessor club Newton Heath, the Manchester United 2016-17 home jersey sports a half-and-half design in two shades of red. This style is continued onto the sleeves, while the front halves are connected through a hexagon detail, which also appears in other parts of the shirt and the rest of Manchester United’s 16-17 Adidas collection.
Contrary to the current Manchester United home kit, the new 2016-2017 Manchester United jersey comes with a modern collar in the same color as the shirt, while a yellow and red Newton Heath plaque-like graphic is displayed on the inside of the Manchester United 16-17 shirt.
In line with Adidas’ Euro 2016 efforts, the brand’s iconic three stripes are positioned on the side of the Manchester United 16-17 home shirt instead of their more traditional position on the shoulders and sleeves.
As always, the new Manchester United home shirt gets combined with white shorts and black socks, both based on Adidas’ new Euro 2016 kit templates and featuring details in red. Alternatively, black shorts and white socks are available.
