Manchester United Celebrate Treble Win’s 20th Anniversary With New Home Kit

After unveiling new home jerseys for Juventus and Bayern Munich, adidas Football has now previewed the home kit that will be worn by Manchester United for the 2019/20 season. The jersey for the upcoming season is a reference to the same kit worn in the 1998/99 season, which ended with the club winning a historic treble of trophies: the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League.

That kit is referenced through a new commemorative crest design with black and gold stitching inspired by that season. Elsewhere, the times that the winning Champions League goals were scored by Teddy Sheringham and now-manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær — the 91st and 93rd minutes— are shown on each sleeve. Lastly, the dates that each of the three titles was won appears on the bottom of the shirt.

The 1999-inspiration also continues onto the home goalkeeper kit, which comes in a tiger camo pattern dark purple color as a nod to the jersey worn by Peter Schmeichel during that season.

Manchester United's 2019/20 home kit is set to make its debut in a charity match on May 26, and is available now from the adidas web store.

In other sports news, Juventus could be wearing a Palace-designed kit this season.
