Manchester United have officially released the 2016/17 away kit in conjunction with Adidas.
The 2015/16 away kit was white and our third was blue but next year it looks like there will be a switch around as our away kit is blue.
Here are the first official pictures of it:

After that demoralising defeat to West Ham, Adidas couldn’t really have timed their release of this away kit any worse with fan opinion for Louis van Gaal‘s United at an all-time low.
With our UEFA Champions League qualification hopes hanging by a thread we now have no control over, this away kit is going to take pride of place in the Europa League next season – I doubt that was in Adidas’ plans.
The deal with Adidas was worth £70 million per year if United kept up their consistent top four finishes but now we keep dropping out of the Champions League, the financials of that deal are likely to change.
