How will Premier League shirts change in 2023/24?

Tuesday 14 March 2023 11:34

Attentive fans will be able to notice a difference to Manchester United's shirts in the Premier League next season.

All top-flight clubs will have slightly different jerseys in 2023/24 after Avery Dennison, the official name, number and sleeve-badge supplier, released details of a new font and other embellishments to the current style.

This is only the fourth-ever redesign in the division's history and features an increase in the number height, while the integration of the Premier League's unique graphic pattern ensures the new font also has increased visibility.

The Premier League sleeve badge has also been redesigned and will be a stand-alone lion from next August.

Will Brass, the Premier League's chief commercial officer commented, on the official press release: "We wanted to work closely with Avery Dennison, using their expertise and experience to create new names and numbers, which were not only clearer for those watching matches in stadiums or at home, but which also incorporated the Premier League brand more readily.

"The names and numbers have become part of the fabric of the Premier League. For fans, having the name and number of a favourite player, their own name or even a personal message helps to bring them closer to the competition and their favourite clubs."

Details of United's new kits for the campaign will obviously be announced in due course.

The changes will take effect next season, with the league campaign due to get under way around the weekend of 12/13 August.
