The design of the new kits has been a personal passion for adidas designer, Inigo Turner who is a lifelong Manchester United fan. Turner comments: “At adidas we have been on a real journey in creating these new kits for Manchester United.
"This landmark sponsorship is not the first time we have partnered with the Club and it is with these iconic kits of the past that we drew our inspiration from.
"We have aimed to break expectations by reengineering simple but impactful design features such as the classic v-neck collar and the iconic three-stripe detailing down the arms as our commitment to giving Manchester United a truly ground breaking kit for the 2015/16 season”.
The new look shirts will be launched as part of the “Break Expectations” campaign, released by adidas to demonstrate the start of a new era for the football club as they return to the UEFA Champions League and start the 2015/16 season.

"Manchester United and adidas have a long and illustrious history in football, both leading the way in innovation and performance.
“The design of the 2015/16 kit will not only appeal to our loyal supporters, it will also showcase adidas’ expertise in creating state of the art performance products for the football industry.
“We look forward to sharing the designs for our complete adidas range with fans via our 100m social media connections, as well as seeing them within the stadium and on the streets, creating a new classic design culture, opening a new chapter in Manchester United’s history.
"We are proud to welcome adidas back to the Manchester United family and look forward to a successful and exciting future together.”
