Confirmed: First game for United's new third kit

Saturday 12 September 2020 13:59

It can be officially revealed that Manchester United will wear the new adidas third kit for the first time during today's friendly against Aston Villa.

The strip, which was released on Tuesday, features a visually distinctive design, inspired by striped jerseys from the club’s history, and is available to purchase from United Direct and adidas now.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side premiered the new home and away kits for 2020/21 at the tail end of last season, during the Europa League clashes with LASK and Sevilla respectively.

Fans who watch the Villa game on MUTV at 22:00 BST could also be afforded their first opportunity to see new signing Donny van de Beek in a United shirt, after the Dutch international completed his transfer from Ajax last week.

The 23-year-old joined up with his new team-mates at the Aon Training Complex on Wednesday and should be involved in the match in the West Midlands.
