Taking inspiration from the club’s philosophy of youth, courage and success, whilst nodding to iconic designs of the past, adidas launch the new Manchester United home shirt for the 21/22 season. The shirt is set to debut this Sunday, 18 July, when United take on Derby in a preseason friendly.

Stripping things back for a look that keeps the club’s core beliefs at its heart, Adidas unveil the Manchester United 21/22 home shirt. Inspired by the three pillars of the club’s philosophy: youth, courage, and success, the design creates a modern, classic look, featuring a subtle tonal three-pillared stripe pattern engineered into the fabric, whilst staying true to Manchester United’s iconic red jerseys of the past.

The philosophy is further brought to life with the “youth, courage, success” mantra printed on back neck tape inside the jersey, whilst the stripe design continues onto the shorts – a nod to kits of the 80s when adidas and Manchester United first joined forces – on an elegant Cloud White base colour. 

The jersey also references the famous long-sleeve ringer shirts – with white cuffs and collar worn in the 1960s – for an updated nostalgic design that features the latest in adidas fabric innovation: HEAT.RDY – KEEP COOL, which is designed to keep players feeling cool, dry, and confident during play. The red devil appears on the back of the shirt for the first time in club history; an iconic logo that goes back to the core of the jersey, sitting underneath the back of the round-neck collar. The gold devil sign off is also included on the front of the socks.

The shirt will be the first Manchester United jersey to launch with the new principal shirt partner TeamViewer, following the announcement of the club’s partnership with the global technology company announced in March this year.

Inigo Turner, Design Director at adidas, said: “At adidas we know that from the days of Sir Matt Busby and Sir Alex Ferguson to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer now, it’s always been important that the club’s success is built upon its philosophy of youth, courage and success. For that reason, when it came to designing the 2021/22 shirt, we took our inspiration from there and we hope that this will resonate with all supporters around the world.”

The new jersey is made with PRIMEGREEN, a series of high-performance recycled materials, putting sustainability at the heart of the innovation. The replica shirt offers similar benefits thanks to the inclusion of AEROREADY – FEEL READY technology, keeping fans comfortable and ready as it absorbs moisture for a dry feeling.
