Presenting the new 2021/22 authentic kit

We were delighted to unveil the new 2021/22 Manchester United home kit last Thursday and, in case you didn't know, there are two iterations of the legendary strip.

Both the replica and authentic kits have now arrived in our Old Trafford Megastore and online via United Direct. Here's why the latter is particularly special...


The authentic home kit is constructed from Primegreen, which is a blend of recycled materials that combine to create a high-performance jersey that can withstand anything that life may throw at it.

Primegreen offers a sustainable choice without any compromise on quality, and with adidas on a mission to end plastic waste, we’re proud to join them on that journey.

A great benefit of the Primgreen material is that it has also incorporated HEAT.RDY technology, which utilises thermoregulation - meaning it helps you to perform both on and off the pitch by keeping you cool and dry. 

AEROREADY technology has also been incorporated and can be found in the replica jersey too. It assists by absorbing moisture to keep you fresh and comfortable.

A golden devil can be found on the back, which represents the great history of the club and allows you to show off your immense pride on and off the pitch. 

The authentic home kit silhouette is designed for performance, and so features a clean design that keeps you comfortable, agile, and at your best.

The ribbed crew neck collar locks in comfort and secures the fit, and also features ‘Youth’, ‘Courage’ and ‘Success’ printed on it, representing the three values that have brought the club so many achievements throughout our history.

Clean vertical lines decorate the shirt to give it premium athletic feel and complete the heritage-inspired look.

The United & adidas authentic home jersey is worn by the players when they’re out on the pitch representing our great club.

And we know how important it is for you to show off your support in style, so check out the authentic jersey on United Direct now.
