Manchester United Football Shirt & Kit - Home - 2012-13 Season - Nike

Nike has unveiled Manchester United new home football shirt and kit for the 2012-13 season and it’s available to buy here. The bold new design of the home shirt has certainly created a stir, with some strong opinions expressed. On launch, the initial reaction of many Manchester United fans was mixed to say the least. However, lately there has been growing support for Nike’s design. The checked gingham design was a bold move by the designers at Nike and it’s this that has provoked the most reaction, with many referring to the shirt as a ‘picnic’ cloth or ‘tablecloth’. It’s fair to say that many of these negative comments came from United’s rival fans, who are only too pleased to criticise anything associated with United. If United go on to win some major trophies wearing the new strip, United fans are sure to fall in love with the new design and their rivals will hate it more!

Nike are big on producing environmentally friendly products and the new home kit is manufactured using Nike’s ground-breaking recycled polyester, making it Nike’s most environmentally friendly kit ever produced. Each kit (shirt and shorts) is made using up to thirteen recycled plastic water bottles. This innovative manufacturing process reduces energy consumption by up to 30% compared to manufacturing traditional polyester.

It remains to be seen how popular this new Manchester United home shirt and kit will be with United’s army of fans worldwide. The shirt is available to buy now here.

Nike explain in their press release that the iconic gingham check hails from Manchester’s famous cotton mills. The gingham check on the home shirt is in tonal red and the black v-neck gives a contemporary look. Inside the neck Nike have included a graphic that reads, ‘Forged in Industry, Striving For Glory’.
