Cape Town - Manchester United and sponsor Adidas have unveiled the club's new away kit for the 2016/17 season.

"The range of shirts available includes the traditional replica, an authentic shirt as worn by the players, a long-sleeved version, and shirts specifically for children and women," said the statement on the club's website.

"In all cases, it is complemented by dark blue shorts and socks. The accompanying goalkeeper kit worn by David De Gea is in the traditional colour of all green. Both shirts feature the names of adidas and principal partner Chevrolet."

"The Reds have worn all-blue to great effect in past campaigns, including the 2002/03 Premier League-winning season when Ruud van Nistelrooy and Ryan Giggs scored in a crucial and memorable 2-2 away draw against title-race rivals Arsenal.

"The current United players will make their maiden appearance in the new away kit for the club's first pre-season match, in Shanghai on 22 July against Borussia Dortmund as part of Tour 2016, presented by Aon.

"This is the first time Manchester United has launched an away kit before the home kit ahead of a new season."
