London: Reigning Premier League champions Manchester United will play in a striking blue and black away kit this season.
The new away shirt consists of a royal blue body and sleeves with hoops made of small midnight navy blue and black stripes, according to the club’s official website.
There are exactly 11 stripes in each hoop to represent each member of the United team.
The shorts are entirely black except for the same hoop from the shirt, consisting of 11 midnight navy blue and black stripes at the bottom of the back of each leg.
The kit is inspired by the blue kits worn in several of the club’s most famous victories, including the 1948 FA Cup final and the 1968 European Cup final.
