OFFICIAL: Manchester United release their 2019-2020 home kit

16 May 2019, 11:45

Manchester United have officially launched their 2019-2020 home kit that draws inspiration from the 1999 treble-winning season in which Ole Gunnar Solskjaer scored in the Champions League final against Bayern Munich.

With a lot of noise surrounding his future at Old Trafford, United might have dropped a huge hint on Paul Pogba's future as he fronts the kit launch. Another striking feature is the new crest which has been unveiled with the black and gold style resembling that worn by the ’99 side.

Club statement on the kit release

"The classic design pays homage to the incredible 1998/1999 season in which United made history by becoming the first team to win the Premier League, FA Cup and UEFA Champions League in one season. Twenty years on, it remains a unique achievement – unmatched by any other English club.

"The iconic treble was clinched following an epic UEFA Champions League final, in which United battled back from 1-0 down to defeat Bayern Munich 2-1 in Barcelona, with injury-time strikes from Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

"The new shirt acknowledges the minutes in which those historic goals were scored, with 90+1 and 90+3 printed on the sleeves. The dates of the FA Cup final win over Newcastle United and decisive Premier League match against Tottenham Hotspur are also displayed, along the bottom of the shirt.

"Meanwhile, the home goalkeeper jersey has a tiger pattern featuring a dark purple two-tone design, inspired by the top worn by our legendary No. 1, Peter Schmeichel, during the 1998/99 season. 

"Another new addition to the United shirt is a commemorative crest, which takes inspiration from the shield seen on the chests of our treble-winning heroes 20 years ago."
