Manchester United are to wear a new kit for this evening's Champions League tie with Inter Milan.

The new strip is emblazoned with a Club World Cup winners badge in the centre of the shirt, in recognition of their success at the tournament earlier this season.

Fifa president Sepp Blatter will present United with the special 'Champions' badge at Old Trafford this evening.

The white emblem features an image of the Club World Cup trophy and is inscribed with the words 'Manchester United Champions 2008.'

The new shirt will be worn during Champions League, FA Cup and Carling Cup games until there is a new holder of the Club World Cup.

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson said: "It was an enormous honour to become the first British club to win the Fifa Club World Cup and this is a badge we will wear with great pride."
