Man Utd’s ‘monstrosity’ of a 2023/24 home kit ‘leaked’ with launch date delayed due to mystery over shirt sponsor
MANCHESTER UNITED’S new home shirt has reportedly been leaked, but the launch date of the hotly-anticipated kit has already been delayed.
The Old Trafford side announced last year that an agreement had been reached to end the five-year deal with front-of-shirt sponsor TeamViewer.

TeamViewer’s name will remain on Man Utd’s shirt until a new sponsor is found, with the new kit’s release date delayed amid ongoing takeover uncertainty.
According to FootyHeadlines, the new shirt will be released at independent retailers on Wednesday 12th July.
A version of the apparent 2023-24 home kit has appeared online.

The image online has sparked a mixed reaction from Red Devils supporters as fans begged for the kit to remain sponsorless.
One supporter said: “They need to keep it sponsorless. Record sales are possible here.”
Another added: “Have it like that without a sponsor I beg.”
Yet not all Man Utd fans were happy with the leak, as one fan asked: “What the f*** is this monstrosity?”

Another fumed: “That is so s***.”
Adidas will continue to make Man Utd’s kit as part of their ten-year, £750m deal with Erik ten Hag‘s side.
United returned to a collared design with this season’s shirt in a nod to the likes of club legends Eric Cantona and Dwight Yorke — who both famously played with their collars turned up.
The new leak scraps the collar but sticks with a white Adidas logo, something a number of fans have objected to.
One wrote: “Unpopular opinion: the three stripes should have been white instead of black.”
Another added: “Need to bring back three stripes that extend all the way to the sleeves.”
