Manchester United fans are loving the early leaks of the club’s new shirts for the 2024/25 Premier League season.
The first details of the fresh designs have surfaced online, and the drafted up kits will be familiar to many Red Devils supporters who have fond memories of the Sir Alex Ferguson era.
Next season’s home shirt will be red, obviously, but what is piquing the interest of supporters is their new sponsor, Snapdragon.
The American tech giants will replace TeamViewer as the main front-of-shirt sponsor for Man United from next season after agreeing a deal worth £65million-a-year with the Premier League giants.
And fans have noticed how their logo looks similar to the club’s Vodafone-sponsored shirts from the early 2000s.
The new kits will also be designed using adidas’ new Tiro 24 template, which features distinctive side panels which also hark back to the very first kits under Nike.
It was the shirt worn during the club’s 2002/03 Premier League title triumph in David Beckham‘s final year at the club before his move to Real Madrid.
It was also worn in the 2003/04 Battle of Old Trafford, which saw Ruud van Nistelrooy and Martin Keown famously clash as United and Arsenal drew 0-0 on the way to the Gunners becoming Invincibles champions.
While that won’t bring back good memories for the United faithful, they did win the FA Cup that year in a team that also featured a young Cristiano Ronaldo.
Footy Headlines report that the home kit comprises of two different shades of red, but it appears an unofficial drafted up design is already on sale in parts of the world which features black panels instead, and it bares a striking resemblance to United’s 2002/03 and 2003/04 shirts.
And many fans like what they see, with one supporter saying: “adidas on the beat.
“Looks like the Vodafone kits,” said another, with a third adding: “Snapdragon giving me Vodafone vibes.”
But, you can’t please everyone – this fan wrote on X: “We have more shirt sponsors than league titles since 2013, it’s painful!”
Meanwhile, it is claimed the away kit will be a deep navy blue colour called ‘Night Indigo’, and will feature a subtle zig-zag motif on the front of the shirt in the form of a repeating M.
Their third kit is said to be an off-white colour and will feature the classic adidas trefoil logo – used by the German sportswear giants in the 1970s and 1980s.
It will also see a return of their retro Red Devil badge that was brought back for the first time in this season’s change shirt.
