Manchester United’s new kit for the upcoming season has leaked ahead of its official unveiling which is supposed to be in few days time.
The home kit for the Season 2018/19 is unlike any the club has worn before. Fading from the default red towards a black bottom, the Adidas Manchester United 18-19 home kit sees more black trim added in the form of the three stripes, on the shoulders and a line around the top of the EQT style collar.
The new kit is still produced by Adidas which has its logo and that of Chevrolet on it.
The gradient graphic on the front of the Manchester United 18-19 kit consists of differently sized hexagons and fades into a more subtle line pattern in the upper half of the shirt.
Template-wise, the Manchester United 2018-2019 home jersey is based on the new Adidas Climachill design.
The shorts are all black with tonal three stripes along the sides. The socks have black top with gradient red lines beneath,
Manchester United was formed in 1878 as Newton Heath LYR Football Club by the Carriage and Wagon department of the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway depot at Newton Heath.
With railways in the 19th century often being red with much black, this seems to be the inspiration behind going with so much black for the Manchester United 2018-19 kit.
