Manchester United 09/10 Home Kit to Resemble 1909 FA Cup Shirt
Manchester United will play in remake of the historic kit from 1909 next 09/10 season. The team will wear home shirts, which feature a large white V-shape sash down the front. The shirt is made to resemble the shirt worn for United’s first FA Cup win.
The kit is based upon a 100-year-old design supplied by one of the club’s own players, Billy Meredith, before the 1909 FA Cup final. The match was the first of United’s record eleven FA Cup titles and was played at Cyrstal Palce against Bristol City. United won 1 – 0.
United’s kit manufacturer Nike have been asked to rework the shirt – using high-tech materials rather than cotton and with a white sash on a red shirt instead of 1909′s red-on-white.
A Man Utd insider said: “The club felt bringing back this old kit was the perfect way for United to mark 100 years of success.”
