The Manchester United 2018/19 Third Shirt is as green as it is blue. The club have teamed up with adidas and 'Parley For The Oceans' to launch a kit made from recycled Ocean Plastic shaped into a design that marks 50 years since the club’s first European Cup win.

Supporting the movement to end marine plastic pollution, the Manchester United 18/19 third shirt gets on board with the Parley initiative that has already featured with Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and MLS jerseys. For United, though, the new aesthetic of the shirt pays tribute to the 50th anniversary of United’s first European Cup win, and the first for any English team in the competition. 


United beat Benfica 4-1 after extra time at Wembley on that occasion wearing a royal blue kit, and the gold detailing on the adidas logo and club crest of the new shirt pays homage to the cup final success.

A quick word from Oliver Nicklisch, Category Product Director at adidas, on the mighty fine work on the Parley initiative, which works with adidas to turn marine plastic waste into footwear and clothing; “We all need to change the way we think and act towards our oceans. It is this core belief that we all share at adidas, which is the reason why our innovative partnership with Parley for the Oceans is so important to us.

"By working with Manchester United to create new, stunning jerseys made with Parley Ocean Plastic, we hope that we can highlight the issue of plastic damaging our oceans, and ultimately encourage and inspire football fans to join us in creating a better environment for everyone.”


The Manchester United 18/19 third kit will be worn on pitch for the first time during United’s summer tour in the USA. It's available now from
