The Manchester United 20-21 home kit has been just released, ahead of the return of the Europa League in early August – United will take on LASK on August 5, having won the away match 5-0, wearing the new kit.
The new Adidas Man Utd 2020-21 season home kit is inspired by the club’s iconic crest.

As expected, a black-and-yellow stripe graphic appears all-over the Manchester United 2020-21 home jersey – although it’s application is much less jarring than initially feared.
The subtle fabric design “takes influence from the intricacies of the yarn-stitched application onto the shirt – a fine graphic print provides a unique pattern and detailing onto a colour-block background. The name of the club is also proudly engineered into the print, visible through the use of different red tones.”
Inigo Turner, Design Director at adidas, said: “For this season, we researched the values and iconography that connect athlete and fan, and looked to fuse these with modernity and innovation, to create something that connects the people and stands for unity.”
“We pretty quickly landed on the crest as it is the representation of the heart and passion of the club, it is symbolic and iconic across the world. It is significant as the first component added to each design, and one that makes up the threads of the shirt design for the 2020/21 season.”
The stripes of the Manchester United 20-21 kit pattern are aligned horizontally and have a much more subtle overall appearance, almost meshing with the red base to create a melange effect.
Unique shorts and socks complete the new Man Utd 2020-21 kit – the Three Stripes of the shorts have the yarn-stitched pattern, while the socks also have a graphic effect. The primary choice for shorts for Manchester United’s new 2020-2021 home strip is white, the socks are black.
Manchester United’s 2020-2021 home strip was released on 4 August 2020.
