Gallery: Reds in blue

The Reds will play in blue this season, following the reveal of Manchester United’s 2013/14 away kit.

The brand new shirt, which features a midnight navy and black gingham pattern, is the latest in a long line of blue United kits.

Of course, Sir Matt Busby’s men famously lifted the European Cup at Wembley in 1968. But the club have actually worn blue away from home as far back as 1902 – not that we can prove it with any colour photographs, mind you!

In recent decades blue has featured regularly in United away kit designs and our gallery of images above shows some of our favourites.
