Five things we noticed about United's 2023/24 away kit

Monday 24 July 2023 13:03

There is plenty that stands out about Manchester United's 2023/24 adidas away kit.

Whether it be the green-and-white stripes, or red elements that feature across the shirt, it's definitely a jersey that will get people talking.

Following the launch, let's take a look at five key details that you may not have noticed.


The base colour is a dark green - of course, you wouldn't have missed that!

However, what you may not know is that it is the first green second shirt United have had since the early 1900s.

The 1902/03 was the first season that our club went by the name of Manchester United, after changing from Newton Heath, and we had a green-and-white striped away jersey, much like the 2023/24 one.


The last time United had a striped away jersey of any kind was between 1994 and 1996.

Then, like the kit donned between 1920 and 1922, white and blue alternated across our away shirt.

A similar pattern - albeit with a different colour - has returned for the upcoming season.

There's just something about the stripes on the new shirt - complete with the subtle thin red pipe within - that just looks right.

When will United's new away kit be worn?


We can now confirm when you can see the Reds play in the new adidas 2023/24 away kit for the first time.


Often a point of debate that can crop up after the launch of an away kit is if a club fails to match the crest with the colours the shirt.

The red and yellow of United's badge is striking, and looks at home on a red or white kit, as was the case last year.

But on a dark green kit, it could easily have looked out of place and taken away from the small details that make this shirt as fitting in lifestyle settings as on a football pitch.

Therefore, the United crest is green and white on this jersey, only adding its the ice-cold finish.


As with our 2023/24 home shirt, if supporters opt to get the long-sleeved version of our away jersey, the adidas stripes continue all the way down to the cuffs.

One other detail, that you may have missed, is that the white-and-red stripes also extend beyond the shoulder, all the way down the arm.

A nostalgic tribute to the club's heritage and the vibrant spirit of Manchester, our new away shirt has just dropped.


Despite white featuring as the secondary colour, the kit is completed by a set of black shorts and a pair of black socks.

The socks also have the same white adidas stripes hooped at the top, as is the case with our home kit.
