The away kit shares the same environmentally-friendly materials as the new home kit and every shirt will be made entirely from the recycled polyester of up to eight plastic water bottles as part of Nike’s ‘Considered Design’ programme. Considering the environment doesn’t mean sacrificing the renowned high performance of Nike’s kits. The new Manchester United away kit has been engineered to give players a greater competitive advantage than ever before, keeping players drier and more comfortable, allowing them to maintain their optimum body temperature and perform at their peak on the pitch.
The improved Nike 'Dri-Fit' fabric, now 13 per cent lighter than previous kits, helps to quickly evaporate moisture by drawing through the fabric to the surface and to keep players dry. Innovative ventilation zones are placed along each side of the jersey to enhance breathability by up to 7 per cent, compared to previous kits, and allow air to pass across the whole torso.
