Wednesday 30 July 2014
Manchester United have unveiled their new third kit ahead of the coming Premier League season as Nike sign off on their thirteen year relationship with the Old Trafford club with an all blue strip.
The Red Devils used the fixture against Inter Milan in Maryland during their pre-season tour of the United States to reveal the new kit ahead of their switch to adidas.
Bringing back memories of United's first European triumph in 1968, the blue strip will be used on away trips to the likes of Sunderland and Stoke City next season.
Carrying Nike Dri-Fit technology, the latest innovation in sportswear, the shirt also houses the logo of new club sponsors Chevrolet, who signed a £53m seven-year deal to replace Aon.
The shirt features a traditional design - with a polo neck collar and three buttons - while the Red Devils' badge is a prominent feature.

It is the American merchandiser's last kit release with United after adidas secured a 10-year deal worth approximately £750m which is set to start in 2015.
An adults short sleeve shirt is priced at £55 while the entire strip will set fans back £92.
