Man Utd legends debut new kit as Beckham and Co don 2019/20 home strip

Manchester United have officially debuted their brand new home shirt on the pitch, as a star-studded legends side went up against Bayern Munich.

United legends took on their German counterparts in a throw-back to the 1999 Champions League final, in which the Red Devils famously won the European cup in extra-time at the Nou Camp.

The two sides went head to head in order to raise funds for charity, and the United side stepped out at Old Trafford wearing next season’s home shirt which pays special tribute to the most successful campaign in the club’s history.

David Beckham, Peter Schmeichel, Gary Neville, Paul Scholes and a host of other legends took part and were reunited on the pitch, 20 years on from the legendary Treble season.

The United home shirt for the coming season nods back to those trophy-laden days, and bears a similar resemblance to the kit worn in 1999.

On the sleeves, fans will notice a series of unique emblems to the iconic season 20 years ago.

Upon releasing the designs for the shirt, United informed supporters on the careful little details they can discover.

A statement on United’s website read: ‘The new shirt acknowledges the minutes in which those historic goals were scored with 90+1 and 90+3 printed on the sleeves.

‘The dates of the FA Cup final win over Newcastle United and decisive Premier League match against Tottenham Hotspur are also displayed, along the bottom of the shirt.’

Another new addition to the United shirt is a commemorative crest, which takes inspiration from the shield seen on the chests of the Treble-winning stars 20 years ago.
