adidas has reunited with Manchester United to reveal the new home kit for the 2015/16 season.

The record breaking 10 year partnership sees adidas take over from Nike which ended its as 13 year releationship with the Premier League giants.

The new home kit, which will be debuted in the opening game of the season at Old Trafford, features a classic v neck cut collar and three stripe design down the shoulder. There is also a graphic design on the hem of the shirt taken from the 1990 shirt famously worn by Ryan Giggs in his debut season.

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 Group Managing Director, Richard Arnold, commented, “Everyone at Manchester United is very proud of the shirt’s classic design, which draws upon the Club’s iconic kits of yesteryear.

"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.”

Steve Marks, adidas Sports Marketing Director for Manchester United, added,“This special club has always broken expectations.

"Sir Alex Ferguson’s historic success, Beckham from the halfway line, the unlikely victory against Bayern Munich in 99, all of these moments demonstrate a club with not only a proud history but also a reputation for success and the unexpected.

"adidas is immensely proud to be part of that history and to be returning once again as partners of Manchester United Football club for another 10 years."
