The highly anticipated Manchester United 11/12 Nike football shirt has arrived at SoccerBible HQ! A fusion of classic and modern design, the Red Devil's new 11/12 Nike home shirt is inspired by the clubs illustrious history, while combining a pioneering manufacturing process.
The new Manchester United home kit uses the success of the past to inspire the glory of the future. Records broken, championships crowned, Manchester United's winning mentality never stops. Old Trafford fortress has a new look that will front another red surge into the new season.
A new season, a new design. Nike have kept a sleek and simple look for the new 2011/12 Manchester United Home Shirt. The classic white collar worn by heroes, Best, Charlton and the 99 treble winners no longer features. In its place is new white crew-necked creation with a central black stripe.
The new white and black crew neck is a design replica of the club's retro bar scarf, which has previously appeared on shirts worn by legendary United sides of the past, including the 1977 and 1985 FA Cup winners, and on the back of the shirts worn by the winners of the 2008 Barclays Premier League and UEFA Champions League.
The new Manchester United 11/12 Home Jersey features a revolutionary sweat controlling fabric and body contoured shape. The improved Nike Dri-Fit fabric helps to quickly evaporate moisture by drawing through the fabric to the surface to keep players dry.
For the first time, the shorts and the socks – as well as the shirt – are made up from Nike's ground-breaking recycled polyester. Each kit is made up of up to thirteen reclaimed plastic water bottles, reducing the energy consumption by up to 30 per cent compared to the manufacturing of traditional polyester.
For the first time on a Manchester United shirt, the iconic club badge is heat-transferred. For traditionalist this news may come as a disappointment, but the new badge construction crucially allows increased ventilation in the chest area while further reducing the weight of the shirt.
The Red Devil's new 11/12 Home Jersey will get its first taste of competitive action in Manchester United's pre-season tour of the USA that will see them take on the New England Revolution, Chicago Fire, Seattle Sounders, MLS All Stars and FC Barcelona as part of their second consecutive North American campaign.
