United reveal blue third kit for 2014/15 season

For the much-anticipated 2014/15 season, ManUtd.com is proud to announce that Manchester United will wear a stylish and innovative new third kit.

With two different tones of blue, the Nike design is inspired by the club’s tradition of wearing blue kits throughout the 1980s, as well as the iconic strip worn by Sir Matt Busby’s men during the 1968 European Cup final triumph over Benfica at Wembley.

The shirt, shorts and socks are all a rich and vibrant blue on the front with a darker tone of the same colour on the back. These two tones are divided by a red stripe on both sides of the kit, representing United’s famous and historic home colour.

The half and half appearance is a traditional football design, but this is the first season it has ever been used on the front and back. The shirt also boasts a classic design with a sophisticated polo neck collar and three buttons in the darker tone of blue.

Like the recently released home and away kits, there is a label on the back of the neck with the message ‘Youth, Courage, Greatness’ to represent the club’s values. 

The new United third kit will be worn for the first time during tonight's match with Inter Milan as part of Tour 2014, presented by Aon.
