What if? Nike Man United 22-23 Home Kit Using New Urawa Reds Shirt

The new 2022 Urawa Red Diamonds home shirt, made by Nike, was released yesterday. The club's colors are nearly identical to those of Manchester United, so inevitably, their kits will look very similar.

Man United 22-23 Kit Based on Urawa Red Diamonds Design

Manchester United were of course outfitted by Nike for a long period of time, 2002 until 2015 to be exact, arguably their most successful era. Japanese club Urawa, who are sponsored by Nike, often release home jerseys that remind us of United's old Nike kits.

So we thought it would be interesting to see what a United version of the 2022 Urawa shirt would look like.

Naturally, the Urawa Red Diamonds home shirt is a great fit for Manchester United. Once all the correct logos and patches are applied, this makes for a quite convincing and realistic design. Were Nike to still sponsor United, this could certainly be something they would produce for the club.


Purely out of interest, we also checked out how last year's sponsor Chevrolet would look like on Urawa's shirt. Once again, it appears convincingly real.


Aon were around during some of Man United's most successful seasons, so we could not leave them out. We could definitely see a 2011 Wayne Rooney wearing this jersey in the Premier League.

All in all, Nike and Manchester United produced some iconic kits over the years. Nowadays, any Nike shirts similar to that tend to bring back memories of those shirts.
