Shanghai, July 23: Manchester United fans are up for a treat as the English Premier League giants have officially unveiled their home jersey for the upcoming 2016/17 season.

Designed by their kit sponsor Adidas, the new looked red jersey seems marvellous in first glimpse.

All the footballers and new manager Jose Mourinho were present at the ceremony to unveil the brand new jersey of the English giants.

Adidas has taken cues from the club's illustrious history, with a two-tone red-split design evoking the two-tone Newton Heath kit of 1878.

The official coat of arms for the City of Manchester was the basis behind the idea for the honeycomb graphic that knits together the two red block designs on the shirt. It was inspired by the worker bee which appears in the crest and originates from the Industrial Revolution, in which Manchester played a significant role.

This is the first time that a Manchester United kit has been unveiled in China. The team is currently in China to play their pre-season friendly games.

They lost 4-1 to Borussia Dortmund yesterday (July 22). Their next game is against fierce rivals Manchester City.

Here are some of the images of the newly unveiled jersey. All images are from Manchester United's official Twitter handle.
