Manchester United’s home kit for next season has been released, and the slick design is inspired around their famous Champions League treble winning campaign.
The shape of the badge, along with its black and gold trim, is similar to what the club sported in Europe during that famous season in ’99.
More features include the minutes of when Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer scored those injury-time goals against Bayern Munich in the final.
The dates of all three title wins are also displayed at the bottom of every shirt.
Manchester United’s official website confirm the new kit will be worn for the first time later this month:
“The new home kit will be worn for the first time on the pitch in the Treble Reunion match at Old Trafford on Sunday 26 May.” it reads.
“The first team will then wear it in Perth on Wednesday 17 July, during the second game of Tour 2019 against Leeds United.
Following its release, some have pointed out the glaring fact that United aren’t even in the Champions League next season, and they are commemorating the victory despite Europa League football awaiting them in the coming months.
But we like the fact they are paying homage to that great team of ’99.
