Manchester United’s third kit for the 2022/23 season is expected to feature a shade of hi-vis yellow with navy blue trim.
The Red Devils will be heading into their eighth successive season with adidas as their kit supplier, and the latest leaks are sure to raise a few eyebrows.
The ever reliable Footy Headlines report that United’s third strip next year will likely be “Semi Solar Slime” and feature navy blue accents.
They corrected their own recent report in which they stated the next third kit would be the inverse of these colours, and now believe that fluorescent yellow will instead be the primary shade.
Footy Headlines add that their will be a ‘modern’ element to the kit design as well, with a zig-zag pattern on the cards. The kit is expected to be available for purchase in August 2022.
United have never used this kind of colour on an outfield kit before, with such bright shades usually reserved for goalkeepers.
However, the club have sported famous green and yellow away strips in the past as a nod to their roots as Newton Heath – these colours have been used in protest against the Glazer’s ownership in more recent times.
Yellow was a popular alternative colour on United kits in the 1970s too.
adidas are not averse to making such eye-catching strips. Chelsea sported similar colours when the German manufacturer supplied their kits in the late 2000s, with fluorescent yellow and green kits becoming iconic and synonymous with that era at Stamford Bridge.
