This is the official teaser for the new Manchester United 09/10 Home kit made by Nike which will be available in the FSC shop.
United's first-team stars have already taken part in a photoshoot wearing the new kit, but it will be kept strictly under wraps until the official unveiling on July 1st. The Reds fly to Kuala Lumpur for the Asia Tour on July 16, where they will wear the new kit for the first time.
"We launch the new home shirt the day we leave for Asia, so the team will be wearing it as often as possible – it’s the first time fans will see the shirt on the pitch," says United's relationship director Luisa d'Aprano.
Dave Seales, commercial manager at Manchester United Merchandising Limited, adds: "The kit launch always happens at that time of year but what we’ve got better at recently is to coincide it with the pre-season tour so that the shirt is available for the team to wear, and for fans to buy."
Rio Ferdinand says the players are always excited to see the new kit and insists the historical aspect acts as an inspiration to everyone.
"Maintaining the traditions of the club is very important," he told the club website.
"Last season we had the blue kit to remember the European Cup winners of 1968 and this one dates back to the 1900s to celebrate 100 years of Old Trafford.
"This club has always taken pride in its history - it acts as an inspiration to all of us and it’s great to see it represented in the new kit."
