Man Utd Launch 2016/17 Home Kit in China

Unveiling their 2016/17 home kit, Manchester United landed in China with fresh threads. Embracing the surroundings, it was an event fully charged and rich in colour.

Kicking things off, the launch was welcomed in with a raft of red devils performing to a super-fan-fuelled-crowd looking on. With Jose Mourinho leading his troops to the fore, a full suite of Manchester United players were on hand to strut the new kit as well as take in some free-style swag. As below, the launch was not short of scenes.

Keeping connections with the local community strong on both sides of the globe, the shirt and its honeycomb shapes are a tribute to the worker bee mentality that runs from Old Trafford to Newton Heath and trims the shirt in style. Similarly, keeping traditions well kept, the event was home to a wishing tree. Scroll through the images to check out some of the wishes. A yes to Pogba, a no to Pogba and a desperate wish for CR7. Can't blame 'em really.
