The Premier League season is nearing its end with only 4 match-days to go. Each club has started planning for the next season, with signing and outgoings being discussed. Manchester United would finally be able to shrug-off a hugely disappointing season. The Red Devils will have things freshened up in the summer with Erik ten Hag ready to takeover the manager’s role. Furthermore, glimpses of Manchester United’s home kit for the next season have emerged.
In the world where secrets are difficult to be kept, Manchester United’s home kit for 2022/23 season has been leaked. Their kit sponsors Adidas have designed quite an appealing design while keeping the main theme red as always. Moreover, after keeping it safe for this season, the makers have experimented with the next kit. Furthermore, there are changes in the sponsors as well.
Adidas goes retro for Manchester United’s kit
The most exciting part of Manchester United’s kit for next season is Adidas going retro for it. The makers have designed it in such a way that it gives out the ’90s vibes’. The most iconic part of the kit is its collar. The collar is main the aspect which gives the 90s feel. Moreover, as soon as one sees a Man United kit with collar, the famous Eric Cantona is the first player which comes to the mind. The striker went ‘collar up’ with the United kit in the 90s, personifying his dominating and bullish personality.
The sleeves of the new kit comes with the trademark three stripes of Adidas in white. This is another change when Adidas placed black stripes on Manchester United’s kit from 1989 to1992. However, back in 2018/19 United’s kit did bear black stripes. But that kit had a V-neck instead of a collar.
The sleeves will undergo another change too. United have KOHLER as their sleeve-sponsor this season which will reportedly change from next term. The kit will feature DXC Technology as their new sponsor. However, their name will be printed in an enlarged manner unlike KOHLER have now.
The most controversial part however of Manchester United’s new kit is the shape of the badge. Though the design of the badge has not been changed, an upside-down house is placed around it. This is the first time since the turn of the century that Adidas have such an outline around the crest. We have to go back to the 1998/99 season when Umbro placed an outlining around United’s crest. Umbro designed the club’s European kit with a circle around the badge in 98/99, and repeated with it in 1996/97.
As always, it will be the the fans who will give the verdict on Manchester United’s kit for the next season. Until then, the club hopes the ’90s-like kit brings along the ’90s glory as well for the club.
