Nike Unveils Manchester United Away Kit for 2013-14 Season

 


Manchester United will play in a new away kit this season boasting the iconic gingham check from the city’s industrial heritage.



The new away shirt, unveiled during the club’s pre-season tour in Japan at Osaka Castle, features the gingham used on last season’s home shirt with a bigger, bolder design.
The shirt’s large black-and-midnight navy gingham checks represent Manchester’s proud industrial past when the check was produced in the city’s booming cotton mills in the 18th century.


It features a black crew neck collar and a white woven devil from the United club crest inside the back of the neck. 



The club crest at the heart of the jersey is an embroidered monochromatic midnight navy and white.


The new away shorts are midnight navy with a thin navy blue stripe on the back hem, and the away socks are navy blue with a white stripe between two black stripes, along with the traditional United bar design.

The new kit showcases Nike's commitment to aiding the performance of players with key technological benefits:

RECYCLED POLYESTER

  • The kit is made from recycled polyester as part of Nike’s commitment to produce performance apparel with reduced environmental impact. The shirt and shorts of each kit are made from up to thirteen recycled plastic water bottles.
  • In the pioneering process, plastic bottles are chopped into flakes, then melted down to form yarn that is spun into fabric, reducing energy consumption by up to 30 percent compared to manufacturing virgin polyester.
  • Since 2010, Nike has diverted more than 1.1 billion plastic bottles from landfill through the use of recycled polyester.

FABRIC AND NIKE DRI-FIT

  • The kit weighs just 150 grams, 23 percent lighter than previous Nike kits. It also boasts a 20 percent stronger knit structure and significantly improved stretch.
  • The fabric uses Nike Dri-FIT technology to draw sweat away from the body through the fabric where it can evaporate, to keep players cool and dry.
  • Ventilation zones, consisting of tiny laser-cut holes, feature under the arms on both sides, as well as at the shorts waistband, to allow additional comfort and cooling. A mesh panel across the entire back increases air circulation.

Nike and Manchester City Reveal Away Kit for Upcoming Season



For the 2013-14 season Manchester City will play in a new Nike-designed away kit that honors the club's history and founding fathers. The club unveiled the kit today in Hong Kong as part of its pre-season tour.

 

City was founded as St Mark’s in 1880 before becoming Gorton AFC in 1884, and then Ardwick AFC between 1887 and 1894. The new City away shirt has a subtle half-and-half design, a graphic element that reflects Ardwick AFC's design in the 1890-91 season. The colors represent Gorton AFC, who played in black.
 


The away shirt features a grandfather collar, a long placket and a stand at the back.

The Manchester City crest, Nike Swoosh and sponsor’s logo are all in gold to reflect the Club’s most recent successes.


 

The new away shorts are black, and the away socks are black with a dark charcoal band at the top.

Black is back: the Orlando Pirates 2013/14 home jersey




Adidas, the leading global football brand, earlier today revealed the new Orlando Pirates Home and Away kits for the forthcoming 2013/14 season.  



Last season the Club opted for a white home jersey variation, as a celebration of some of the great Orlando Pirates team kits of yesteryear. For the forthcoming 2013/14 season though, the Club has decided to return to the more recent variation of an full black kit for their home strip. 


“We are proud to once again support Orlando Pirates this season as we continue our strong relationship with this legendary club,” commented Gugu Ntuli, PR Manager at adidas South Africa. “Our designers have created what we believe will be an iconic jersey, as it further entrenches a strong emotional connection with the colour black and stimulates a pride in the jersey and the Club itself with the fans,” added Ntuli. 




Other than returning to a full black strip, the jersey has also taken on a few new design elements such as V-shaped neck detail done in red piping and silver treatment of the illustrious adidas 3 stripes on both the shoulders and shorts as well as player names and numbers, moving away from the traditional white – a first for Pirates. While the away jersey remains red due to the great success and identity that has been created in this variation over the past couple of years, the away jersey will also include the same design elements used on the home jersey. 


Accompanying the launch of the new Home jersey has been the Black is Back campaign, which was introduced during teaser stage and will be continued well into the 2013/14 season. “adidas worked closely with the Club to introduce the kit in a stimulating and fresh visual way, utilising strong and starkly contrasting campaign imagery to play up the heritage of the colour and it’s symbolism to the fans,” stated Lauren Haakman, adidas South Africa Brand Manager. 


Mickey Modisane, PRO at Orlando Pirates Football Club, added: “We are excited to return to black. We also wanted to involve the Club’s most ardent supporters in the campaign because we recognise the role of our supporters in the success of our Club. ‘Black is Back’ is a strong statement and we chose the phrase Ezimnyama Ngenkani to accompany it, as it perfectly describes the Club and its supporters – black and proud.”


The new home kit is now available on www.prosoccer.co.za.
