Manchester United – pictures of current and old Manchester United shirts

The primary colors of Manchester United’s uniforms are red, white and black. If you look at the current Manchester United shirts, both the home, away and third jerseys, you will see that these are the primary colors.

When the club first played under the name Manchester United Football Club (in 1902), it was also in red shirts, white shorts and black socks. Before that, the club was called Newton Heath and the shirts were characterized by their green and gold colors. However, it is said that there is a photograph from 1892 that shows the team playing in red and white football jerseys.
