Manchester United have unveiled their third kit for the 2018-19 season, inspired by the royal blue worn as the club won the 1968 European Cup.

United’s new navy blue effort, according to Adidas, features “yarn spun from Parley Ocean Plastic”, and will be worn for the first time on the club’s pre-season tour of the United States.

The Red Devils will spend two weeks in America, and will start their tour with a game against Mexican side Club America in Arizona, before taking on MLS side San Jose Earthquakes in Santa Clara. United will also face AC Milan, Liverpool and Real Madrid in the International Champions Cup.

The jersey is designed to create awarness of the problem of plastic in the ocean, while the gold detailing on the club crest pays homage to United’s 4-1 win over Benfica under Sir Matt Busby at Wembley 50 years ago.
