Heading away, Manchester United launched their away kit in London as part of a three striped showcase at the adidas Base in Brixton.

A steady crowd gathering with pace, the event was preceded with a dollop of feisty football as the 2v2 tournament presented a chance for local players to battle it out for the chance to head to Marseille for the final of the tournament. The 2v2 match ups, not only an invitation for street style, highly skilled and trick littered football, it brought to the fore 'Ace' and 'X' for the small sided, solid surface.

Bringing the house down though, the arrival of Manchester United players Ander Herrera, Juan Mata, Daley Blind and Ashley Young donning in the retro infused United away kit for the 15/16 season, smashed through into football cool.

A kit that takes a clean, minimal approach is a no nonsense throw down - sophisticated in its style, it will look an unrivalled smart number when gracing the pitch for the first time this Friday against Aston Villa. The beauty of this launch being that it took the kit away from conventional places, highlighting the off the pitch look becoming ever present. Shout out to Chuck Gul who we snapped rapping the Man Utd home shirt.

Not just there to make up numbers or to pose, the players took to the small court to throw their own skills into the mix. Football tennis the starting point, it didn't take long before they jumped on board the showboat. Offering fans the chance to see some of the Premier Leagues finest do something out of the norm, a celebration of football that Brixton bathed in.
