Marking 140 years since the club was born, the new 2018/19 Manchester United Home football shirt by adidas brings a genuine tribute to the origins of the Red Devils. Originally names Newton Heath (Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway) Cricket and Football Club, the new garms from the three stripes feature, well, even more stripes as a homage to this industrial heritage.

Moving on the argument that shirt design is boring, the new Manchester United football kit features a pattern that reflects the train tracks that were the heart of the club way back in 1878. It wasn't until 1902 that the club changed to the worldwide brand that is now Manchester United FC, so this shirt pays tribute to the very early years of one of the games' greatest clubs.


The new Manchester United kit features a twist as the default short pairing is black not white, designed to compliment the railway design. From a distance this gives the kit an all-in-one look as the stripes roll into the shorts, with the socks further adding to this on pitch style. We'd even go as far to say that this was designed purely with adidas' other iconic product (Predator) in mind to really make a one pitch look.

Always a delight to see what the club have created for the iconic home shirt, the new Manchester United 18/19 kit is available now from
