Taken As Kit Inspiration From Adidas & Nike | Manchester United 1909 Kit

Monday, 15 April 2019
Adidas will celebrate the 110-years anniversary of Manchester United's 1909 FA Cup triumph next season with the club's new third kit. However, it is not the first time that a Manchester United jersey pays homage to the kit of 1909. In 2009, Nike also paid homage to the 1909 'Rose' kit for Manchester United's collection.

Nike celebrated 100 years of Old Trafford in 2009, while Adidas refers to the 1909 FA Cup final when the jersey was also worn. United first opened their famous Old Trafford during the 1909/10 season.

In contrast to Nike, Adidas went for a more modern interpretation. The Adidas Manchester United 19-20 third kit is black with a stylish rose pattern, inspired by the kit worn in the 1909 FA Cup final.
