The third shirt Manchester United used for two seasons, starting from 1992, was an altered yellow and green half and half design. The whole left side has a green base, whereas the right part of the body of the shirt is yellow, and the right sleeve is green. The club badge is inside a black sheild, meaning it stands out a lot more on the green background
The kit was manufactured by Umbro, and sponsored by Sharp, with the sponsor placed quite high on the shirt. There are faint “M””s covering the whole of the shirt, as well. The collar, keeping to the theme, is also very original. Underneath the green collar with black trim, the collar can be tightened by two black cords, adding to the snippets of black, giving a new dimension to the shirt. Being a third shirt, this wasn’t used too frequently by United, but was popular with fans.
In 1878 the team started life as Newton Heath L&YR F.C, by 1902, the club neared bankruptcy, but the owner of Manchester Breweries stepped in with a sizeable investment to save the club. A new name was wanted to reflect the clubs fresh start, Manchester Celtic and Manchester Central were suggested before Manchester United was picked. The club also decided it was an appropriate time to change their colours, going from Newton Heath’s yellow and green to the red and white we know today.
