Manchester Red announced their home kit for the 2023-24 season. It unveiled on the same day when fans will protest the Glazer family again.
Angry supporters, enraged by the club’s ownership and the lengthy takeover issue, blocked the entrance to the megastore to coincide with the debut of the new Adidas uniform, which costs £120 for the original matchday version and £80 for the replica.
Outside Old Trafford, a small number of supporters waving anti-Glazer banners and placards could be visible.
Police and security were waiting for demonstrators at Old Trafford after social media posts directing them to the megastore.
They formally reveal their distinctive blood red shirt with a Lancashire rose pattern earlier on Tuesday.
Despite United’s mutual agreement to dissolve their affiliation with the German IT business in December, TeamViewer remains the shirt sponsor. TeamViewer will remain on the front of the team’s shirts until a new sponsor arrives, according to the club.
United and TeamViewer both have the right to repurchase their jersey sponsorship anytime a replacement partner is identified.
The Red Devils receive £47 million every season from the TeamViewer agreement, but the Old Trafford finance office believes a new shirt sponsor may offer them a greater value.
Their uniform revelation comes after a group of United fans staged a demonstration at the club’s megastore, expressing their growing dissatisfaction with the club’s long-running takeover dispute.
The 1958, a group responsible for multiple anti-Glazer rallies in recent months, stated that they will be at the Old Trafford shop at 9.45 a.m. on Tuesday.
Earlier, the organization tweeted, ‘Bring your anti-Glazer flags and banners!’ Be visible and loud. We’re not going to stop until they sell our club.’
Manchester Red and adidas unveils new kit
Large swaths of the club’s fan base are furious with the Glazers. The process has already lasted eight months since it started in November.
With the start of the new season just seven weeks away, it remains to be seen if Qatari Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad al-Thani or British billionaire Sir Jim Ractliffe can be successful with their bids for Manchester United in what is effectively a two-horse race.
Before, while the transfer window became wide, people assumed that any buyouts or investments were to be made.
While United’s spending remains unaffected, the uncertainty surrounding the club’s future is not helping those attempting to close agreements.
United players Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho, Casemiro, and Raphael Varane were among those to model the new kit.
Aitch, a United supporter and British rapper, first leaked the uniform at Glastonbury.
The 23-year-old rapper performed on the Pyramid Stage on Saturday wearing a previously unseen United jersey. Afterward, the pictures of the costume had gone viral on social media months earlier.
Prior to the unveiling on Tuesday morning, United revealed that the shirt Aitch wore during his performance on the Pyramid stage was the same one that their men’s and women’s stars will be sporting for the upcoming season.
