New Manchester United Gingham Kit 2012-13- Nike Man Utd Home Jersey 2012-2013

By Soccer Blog | May 10, 2012

See Man Utd Away Kit 2012/2013 here- released 20 July

Premier League giants Manchester United will be wearing a gingham kit for the 2012/13 season, as per the official kit revealing by the club on 11 May, 2012. United’s new 2012/13 gingham shirt was revealed in phases by Nike and we had put up pictures of those teasers as well as a leaked photo of what the full shirt had been expected to look like prior to the official release. Man Utd’s new gingham top hasn’t been universally popular with fans, with many labelling it a “tea towel” design by Nike.

Nike have already released Arsenal’s new 2012/2013 home kit that also drew mixed reaction for its hooped sleeve design.

The new gingham kit is a tribute to the mills of Manchester, which started producing gingham in the 18th century.

Here are some pictures of Man U’s new 2012/13 home strip, which sees a gingham inspired top paired with white shorts and black socks. The GK jersey is green in colour.

More released Premier League 2012/13 kits can be seen in our football shirts section.

  6. reco May 10, 2012 4:14 pm

    As if you said united want to be like city! Because we want to go the next 44 years without a Premier League title…

  7. Sean May 10, 2012 5:50 pm

    Fact: The bottom picture is a fake the square patterns are smaller and look much better on real jersey…

  8. Sam May 10, 2012 5:54 pm

    Awful looking shirt

  9. Vwen May 10, 2012 6:01 pm

    Tons of discarded table cloth? Problem solved.

  10. kingshuk May 10, 2012 7:27 pm

    one of the worst jersey ever !!

  11. Alivia May 10, 2012 7:44 pm

  12. TomYemmooo May 10, 2012 7:48 pm

    I reckon the kit is nice! how can united be copying city! we’ve never won the leauge on goal difference always points, and we’ve kept up with city and look at their team. Get your facts straight!!

  13. callum mccoskrie May 10, 2012 8:00 pm

    no likey no buyee

  14. Karl May 10, 2012 8:31 pm

    horrible, cant wait until the next shirt.
    what were you thinking.

  15. Nascer Mwenyewe May 10, 2012 8:45 pm

    This kit looks Maasai like

  16. Aaron Ballard May 10, 2012 9:32 pm

    What in gods name is nike playing at, is this table cloth suppose to be a joke, who cares about the cotton industry, the manchester city fans will be buying us tableware to put on us next, laughing stock!!!!!!!!!

  17. Brad 77 May 10, 2012 9:46 pm

    I quite like this kit

  18. Dave starsy May 10, 2012 9:47 pm

    It will still sell they have had far worse than this one

  19. Paul W May 10, 2012 11:43 pm

    Who cares what the shirt looks like??? We should all be more concerned as to how we get our trophy back!!

  20. Emmanuel Obeng Wiafe May 10, 2012 11:43 pm

    hahaha. it looks like a poor defeat jersey in europe. This looks like a towel. hahahaha.
    shame……..! man city forever

  21. Imran May 10, 2012 11:59 pm

    What C**T designed this?? What a load a rubbish!
    Manchester United FC should be ashamed with it’s replica football shirt
    The cloth seems like a cooking apron.

  22. martin dore May 11, 2012 12:10 am

    yea why dont we go back to addidas or umbro nike do trainers not football shirts ihavent bought one shirt yet that they have made there all shit

  23. Peter May 11, 2012 2:17 am

    I think Nike is trying to drive some Man Utd fans to become Man City fans. I bet they’re going to sponsor Man City’s jersey soon and come out with a better design. When both sides have enough fans, Nike is going to force both sides to share a new Red and Blue checkered jersey. Ultimately, this will realise the dream of creating the world’s most expensive tea towel.

  24. awal May 11, 2012 2:18 am

    Is it Towel cloth or table cloth…very cheap material.Am really ashamed

  25. bassey charles david May 11, 2012 2:56 am

    Manchester united new kits is beautiful made well then this season 2012,its looks more batter then previous season,i think is nice,good job from Nike.

  26. Arjun Batra May 11, 2012 3:08 am

    its a table cloth

  27. disgusted May 11, 2012 3:55 am

    Why are nike designing kits, at best they should be manufacturing them if this monstrosity is anything to go by.

    Shirt sales will be down 70% at least.

  28. tave May 11, 2012 4:10 am

    Sean is right, the bottom picture is fake. If you look at the logo in the second picture, it’s six squares across, while the bottom one is only three. Huge difference, I think.

  29. Crobox 55 May 11, 2012 4:17 am

    Does City paid to Nike to ruin Utd’s kit?

    My Lord,this is horrible sh*t

  30. Vkam May 11, 2012 5:22 am

    Haha City definately nike fr this ugly tablecloth shit

  31. dyo May 11, 2012 7:43 am

    ya ampun! asli kayak taplak meja!

    translated: OMG! truly a table cloth!

  32. Agger.J May 11, 2012 8:14 am

    Common guys/gals.. make up your mind.. is it a table cloth or tea towel??? LMFAO!!!

  33. dave May 11, 2012 8:54 am

    Stop being numpties there’s nothing wrong with it. Can’t even see the check pattern when you are 6ft away.

  34. Dan May 11, 2012 8:55 am

    We are Man United we’ll wear what we want

  35. cj May 11, 2012 9:35 am

    its actually not bad

  36. sagar May 11, 2012 9:36 am

    hahahaha that’s nike for you, adidas won’t ever create an eyesore such as this even for liverpool…

  37. John May 11, 2012 9:57 am

    HAhahahaha – that is the ugliest kit design I have EVER seen! Tea towel indeed!

    Arsenal’s new kit, isn’t bad – a bit American but its cool!

  38. vicky emma May 11, 2012 10:25 am

    b4 you critisize ths jersey,make sure u have atlist 2 previous jersies.athaws man utd daent rily mind if u dnt buy the jersey,it’s bettr off wthout ur loudmouth

  39. Joe Green May 11, 2012 11:25 am

    does it really matter kit united play in? it’s all about going out for a brand new season and beating shitty city!

  40. killer May 11, 2012 11:25 am

    by wearing this.. united will finish 7th next season , looks clown are playing in OLD-traford

  41. corey May 11, 2012 11:40 am

    oh shut the hell up guys its a nice kit either back your team united or f off to the scum man city

  42. Tubagus May 11, 2012 11:56 am

    Oh my god! It is really looks like tea towel or table cloth! Don’t you shame to wear it ? Glory Glory Tea Towel ^^

  43. Jaffa May 11, 2012 12:02 pm

    All you lot need to learn how to spell and write sentences, I’m well aware that short hand is the norm on the net but come on, half the sentences on here are illegible. Bunch of ingrates. The new top’s the best they’ve had in a long while better than the default…

  44. dgt May 11, 2012 1:06 pm

    It is really hard to care about any of your opinions when your writing is so ridiculously hard to decipher.

    Anyway this happens every time there is a new shirt. Everyone will get used to it and ultimately like it after 3 months.

  45. Nekwei May 11, 2012 1:08 pm

    Man Utd if you know what is good for you then pls plead with ADIDAS or UMBRO to kit the team. Gradually Man Utd is losing it fun base with such a horrible shirt design. The disgrace of okra is a cassava shame.
    Shaaaaammmmmeeeeee nike for disgracing Utd.

  46. ali May 11, 2012 1:13 pm

    who wears a tartan to a football match

  47. Kama Irahsa May 11, 2012 1:32 pm

    well.. have to get use to it.. 😀

  48. Ej May 11, 2012 2:01 pm

    Can’t believe we have to play in this. The day that Liverpool announce their strip, which I have to say looks fantastic, we announce this rubbish.

  49. gww22 May 11, 2012 2:04 pm

    those are my pyjamas

  50. DLew May 11, 2012 2:17 pm

    On the bright side, when the Glazers don’t pay to upgrade the side, you can use it to play checkers on during all the tedious matches you’ll be watching.

  51. bubbleqilz May 11, 2012 4:10 pm

    @kayul its not copying man city, they designed this gingham kit to pay tribute to Sir Alex Ferguson for managing man utd for 25 YEARS! IMAGINE how long is that.

  52. DesmondRed May 11, 2012 4:17 pm

    This shirt is cool. I thought ‘table cloth’ at the start but actually looks quite cool. The History behind it is also cool. The Liverpool shirt just resembles that in History they have been an ok club, and once again they are dwelling on the past.

  53. kwaku duah May 11, 2012 5:24 pm

    Nice manchester united new kit for 2012/2013 season. I love it.

  54. kwaku duah May 11, 2012 5:25 pm

    i love it.

  55. kwaku duah May 11, 2012 5:26 pm

    Nice manchester united new kit for 2012/2013 season. I love it. Glory glory man untd.

  56. reddevils May 11, 2012 6:08 pm

    pretty good kit. come on guys, dont just judge the jersey like that. it look so much better when you wears it.

  57. Stevie Priestley May 11, 2012 6:14 pm

    OH CHRIST ALMIGHTY ! LOL “Pinky…… ALEX…… Have you lost a pair of tartan Y-Fronts?”

  58. mike kama May 11, 2012 7:04 pm

    This kit is weird! It’s not tear dropping disgraceful but it’s quite horrendous if you take away the fact that it’s Manchester United’s! I despise Loserfools as much as the red runs in my blood, but looking at their new kit, I regrettably say I a..admhhh….ADMIRE IT! THERE! It’s the closest thing to class Scouse have had for the past two decades! Don’t know why Nike can’t see the beauty in simplicity and elegance! Always have to give the head design duties to some crack-head fashion design wash out!

  59. Ob1 May 11, 2012 8:00 pm


  60. REDEVILTILLDEATH May 11, 2012 8:46 pm

    i jus see a bunch of jobless asses commenting on something which is not gonna make a big difference right now. all that matters is the title . whether this kit or something else.

  61. Thokozani Nkala May 11, 2012 9:00 pm

    After looking at it i think its very good but it will take time for people to get used to it..I think the history it carries is very good Love the Writing on the back inside Made For Manchester Forged In Industry, Striving For Glory…Doesn’t define next season better…Was a bit critical of it at the start but i think it looks good just have to get used to IT!!!

  62. Mr. Airtazz May 12, 2012 12:23 am

    Like a tablecloth.. :(

  63. subsey May 12, 2012 3:19 am

    I’m pretty sure who is commenting our jersey as a tablecloth are either man utd haters or they never buy jerseys.. As a Red Devils fan I’ve already ordered one. Man Utd for life. fck you all haters

  64. Alicia Spence May 12, 2012 11:27 am

    worst shirt I have ever seen but the best dishcloth I have ever seen

  65. jay rain francis May 12, 2012 4:13 pm

    we are the red devils we will wear this jersey and come out with success next year.Glory Glory Manchester United

  66. Avishek 2003 May 12, 2012 4:28 pm

    Nice jersey.The history behind the jersey is very nice one

  67. Tom Simmonds May 12, 2012 4:58 pm

    Either the people who comment disliking the shirt or either Man U haters or just glkory supporters or they just don’t care. As a Red devils fan I have already ordered the shirt. I dont care about the look of the strip. I’m showing I support my team. If you are a red devil to you shouldn’t care about the look and just show ur support

  68. Samir May 12, 2012 8:30 pm

    What the f**k is that, I think they should remake the 2009-10 kit,wasn’t that one AWSOME with “V” thing on the chest and stuff

  69. Varun Gaure May 13, 2012 6:55 am

    This kit is to honour the mill workers of Manchester..this kit is all about representing the true roots of Manchester…and to proclaim the history of Manchester united!
    City can’t do this..they have no history.
    This looks like tablecloth? And where does table cloth belong? TOP OF THE TABLE!
    United till I Die!

  70. ayan May 13, 2012 10:00 am

    man u is the best player i have ever seen him

  71. Human May 13, 2012 11:31 am

    Manchester United have sold their souls for Nike dollars.

    Until this year, they wore RED.

    Now they were gingham.

    All true football fans know this: Manchester United have sold their souls for Nike $.

    This is disgusting.

  72. Brett May 13, 2012 12:09 pm

    I really like the new Man United 2012-2013 home shirt.
    They will win in the new home top.
    from Brett. The biggest Man United Fan

    For me is not about the kit is about signing players, pls the glazer family and sir alex should pls splash the money we the fan don’ wan’t this kind of embarrasment next season. Pls save us the shame.

  82. keerin May 15, 2012 11:34 am

    we need to go back to basics…..not only on the field but in the kit department…..

  83. Ryan Carelse May 15, 2012 1:00 pm

    The tea towel pattern should of been a lot bigger and a lot lighter its to prominent

  84. Raj Chaudri May 27, 2012 8:03 pm

  96. redtilltheend July 10, 2012 11:27 pm

    It’s not so bad, i’ve seen worse for utd but at the end of the day it’s a football kit – it serves a purpose and most people (if not all fans) will still pay a small fortune for it…

  97. Pappu Thakur July 11, 2012 6:18 am
