The new 2016/17 Manchester United Away kit from kit maker Adidas has been officially launched.
Based on the brand’s overall Euro 2016 aesthetic, the Manchester United 2016-2017 away kit is royal blue, resembling the iconic all-blue kit worn in the 1968 European Cup final; Manchester United became the first English side to win the European Cup in the game against Benfica. The nostalgic inspiration of the Manchester United 16-17 away kit is further accentuated through the use of a distinct all-over print, designed to look similar to classic football jersey materials.
Red accents in the form of the Adidas Performance logo on the front and the three stripes, positioned on the shoulders, complement the striking appearance of the Manchester United 2016-17 away shirt. A ‘Red Devils’ detail is visible on the inside of the Manchester United away kit.
Adding a modern touch to the all-blue look, Adidas combines the royal blue Manchester United 2016-2017 away shirt with plain, dark blue shorts, while the Adidas Manchester United 16-17 away kit socks come in the same color and feature the same pattern as the new Manchester United away shirt.
