Nike have now unveiled the brand new Manchester United Home Shirt 2011-12, which the newly-crowned champions will wear in pursuit of their 20th Premier League title and in their 2011 Champions League final against Barcelona.
After a run of two shirts that have received something of a mixed reception (black ‘v’, white collar) we reckon Nike’s effort on the new Manchester United Home Shirt 2011-12 is going to receive a warm reception amongst the overwhelming majority of Manchester United fans.
The body of the new Manchester United Home Shirt 2011-12 is traditional red with a white crafted crew neck collar and central black stripe to replicate the design of the club˘ iconic bar scarf, which has previously appeared on the shirts of legendary United sides of the past, including the 1977 and 1985 FA Cup winners, and on the back of the 2008 Champions League and Barclays Premier League winners.
Nike say that the retro bar scarf is an instantly recognisable Manchester United pattern, held aloft by fans and players in times of both celebration and remembrance, and is the perfect addition to the classic Red of Manchester United.
Inside the front of the new Manchester United Home Shirt 2011-12, on the back of the club crest, is the phrase ‹Ĺ›Relentless˘€žË, which perfectly captures United˘ pursuit of success and drive to consistently win the greatest trophies in club football. For the first time the club crest on the front of the shirt is heat transferred, making it even lighter and crucially allowing this area to now be ventilated as well.
On the back of the new Manchester United Home Shirt 2011-12 below the neck is a small devil from the club crest, while inside the neck reads ‹Ĺ›Manchester United.˘€žË
The home shorts this season are entirely white except for a small woven tab on the hem, which also features the black and white stripe from the United bar scarf.
The new home socks are black with a small white devil from the club crest on the calf and a red, white and black striped band at the top.
Nike’s signature Dri-Fit and Considered Design technologies are also in play here (as with all their 2011-12 football shirts) meaning that the new Manchester United Home Shirt 2011-12 is not only among the lightest and driest available on the market today -it also help Nike meet their goal of recycling 100m plastic bottles that would otherwise be left in landfill sites.
The new Manchester United Home Shirt 2011-12 is available right now! Order Yours Now to have for the Champions League Final on Saturday!
